RedHat is not a free product, so unless you can afford to buy it and the related materials, I'd suggest you experiment with CentOS, which is a clone without the branding. There are huge amounts of documentation online concerning this.

Welcome to the forums Nirav! I agree that reading books about Linux can be very tedious. What I recommend is to install CentOS on a spare computer or a virtual machine and actually work through some projects/exercises of interest to you, using the book as your guide. Personally, I learn better from experience than from reading.

RHEL6 is not free , buy it
or install one of the FREE rebuilds

However the documentation IS free for everyone to reed
and IS used for CentOS 6 and ScientificLinux6
in HTML,Epub, PDF

other than that
use google

there are a few older red hat guides and "red hat bible" offered for free
some ARE LEGAL using advertising
