I don't care what the book says.

If you change your login shell to ksh, and then login, ksh will read

If you change your login shell to bash, and then login, bash will read
~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login or ~/.profile (whichever of those is
the first one found, searching in that order).  This is all documented
in the bash(1) man page.
