wounded in the line of duty
I'm glad you came across our new book "Fedora Linux Toolbox: 1000+ Commands for Fedora, CentOS and Red Hat Power Users." I'm afraid there's no particular conspiracy here about why there isn't much written about CentOS.
Sales of "Red Hat" books took a big hit when Red Hat Linux disappeared. Tons of Red Hat Linux Books in the pipeline were quickly renamed to "Fedora," and all but the few top books sold poorly. When CentOS began to emerge, it wasn't clear that CentOS users would pick up the slack buying general-purpose Linux books.
With the Linux Toolbox series, we thought it was a good opportunity to give a nod to CentOS users. While a Bible may be inefficient for an an advanced CentOS user, I thought a compact book with over 1000 command examples would be useful to the more sophisticated CentOS user.
Anyway, thanks for the great work you have done. I was glad to see that several of my books came up when you searched for your name at Amazon.
