5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! 3 Feb. 2011
By Steve
This is the best technical book I have ever read.
It starts from the beginning, explaining everything from the basics and leads up to a comprehensive explination of all the in-depth aspects of the topic, and even points to the standards documents for further reading and reference.
The language is clear and accurate, there is no ambiguity.
This is an excellent tutorial and reference.
I can't recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book you can really learn from 15 April 2006
By abell46
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is superbly written. The author introduces all the major aspects of TCP/IP and for anyone who wants to understand how networking really works, the book provides a great way to learn. The style helps the learning process: as I was trying to synthesize the knowledge being dished out, questions would spring to mind and these would generally be answered within a few sentences by Kozierok.

This is a great book, comprehensive and detailed it makes a great reference book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably good but no bible 13 Mar. 2006
By PedroF
The book has one major quality: it's acessible and the explanations are clear and concise. Unfortunately that's also the source of it's biggest problem, it doesn't delve deep enough on may subjects (for instance I needed to know better the details of IPv4 Options, ARP in it's various forms and IGMP which the book doesn't even cover).
On the whole it might be a good investment given it's price and provide some insigth into TCP/IP, but I wouldn't call it a reference book.
