This is, without a doubt, *the* definitive routing reference for the network engineer; and one of the best technical books I have ever read. I usually skip to the back and pick out the parts that interest me; I'm reading this from start to finish, it's that well written. If you need to integrate your LAN with the internet, or if you are a network consultant or ISP tech like me, you need this book. This is required reading.

The book is a lot more pleasant than reading the BGP RFCs between 1771 and 1997. The Chapter 10/11 presentation style makes life easier than trying to wade through the much drier BGP-4 case studies on the Cisco Web page. Reading this book ahould also give any CCIE aspirants out there a couple of points boost.

A very well structured book on routing. Builds up subject knowledge step at a time. The only shortcoming is that some terms are not defined or explained the first time they are used but left for later discussion. List on inside of covers - excellent idea and quick guide to the slow to learn the new lingo.

This is the BEST written book on this topic I have found. It is an absolute must for all Internetworking engineers. I can't heap enough praise on it. Nice writing Halabi!!

The title is a bit misleading. While this book briefly touches other protocols (link state vs. distance vector and Halabi favors link state), it is a solid BGP resource and a valuable resource for understanding BGP in all its gory detail. The title should have been: All you wanted to know about BGP but was afraid to ask. It is complete BGP resource.

This book is excellent. It covers BGP from the ground up. As someone who essentially played with BGP in order to learn it this was perfect at filling in all the gaps. It includes example scenarios and router configs that you can often apply to your own situation. I recommend it to anyone who wants to know about BGP.

The book was very easy to read for a networking literate individual. The book builds up to advanced topics and walks you through sample configurations. I now feel confident about my knowledge of BGP.

After trying to find out about BGP4 online, this book has proved to be a revelation; it is very clear and concise and provides excellent information practical advice on implementing BGP4.

Internet Routing Architechtures is a marvelous example of how a book can be highly technical as well as thoroughly readable. Hallabi starts from the Internet and ISP Basics and walks the reader through CIDR, VLSM before touching Routing Protocols. He then explains Interdomain Routing Basics and such scenarios as Load Sharing, Symmetry and Load Balancing. Chapters 10 and 11 guide the reader on implementing BGP4 on Cisco Routers. This is the book that I rely on for my own Autonomous System.
