Reviewers' Quotes

"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. The attention to detail is comprehensive, and complicated themes are examined and explained in language that anyone can understand." - Dave Venable, Boise State University
