"This book provides an excellent foundation to understanding Red Hat Linux. It is as readable as any book on this subject that I have come across. Not only is it an excellent guide to Red Hat's certification, it is a fabulous introductory text book." - Chris Spreitler, Vatterott College
"I wish I had this Nick Wells book when I was just starting to study Red Hat. I will use this textbook the next time I teach Linux.
