Recommend RHEL Books to Me

I've been around Linux/unix for almost 10 years now, but aside from a brief redhat5.2 stint, I'm a complete Redhat newbie. For work reasons, I need to become excellent with the distro and its quirks and habits.

Can anyone recommend to me some reading that will:
  1. A) Not be dated
  2. B) Provide me with a good guide for "recommended best practices"

I don't really need to know how to use ifconfig, for example, but I'd love to know how Redhat wants me to use it.

Can I expect to find a RHEL4 book and not worry? I know RHEL5 is pretty fresh, so the up-to-date books will be limited.

Note: by "books", I'm fine with paper books, ebooks, or just webpages.

Really, the material they provide for taking RHCE is very nice and completes all tasks necessary.

For complete reference or books from well known publishers, do a search at
