Product Description

From the Back Cover

This specially priced boxed set contains Volumes 1-3 of the acclaimed TCP/IP Illustrated books by W. Richard Stevens and Gary R.Wright, plus an exclusive data structures poster!

The TCP/IP Illustrated books are praised for their highly effective visual approach to the essential TCP/IP topics facing today¿s networking professionals. The word 'illustrated' distinguishes this book from the rest. By forcing conditions to occur, and then displaying the results, TCP/IP Illustrated gives readers a much greater understanding of the concepts than words alone can provide. The books are noted for their diagrams and clear and readable writing style.

Available together in a gift set for the very first time, these books include unparalleled TCP/IP material needed by any networking professional. Titles include: TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols; TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2: The Implementation; TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 3: TCP for Transactions, HTTP, NNTP, and the UNIX® Domain Protocols; and the 4.4BSD TCP/IP Networking Data Structures Poster. The suggested list price is over $20 off the cost of buying the books individually. The handsome slipcase makes this set an ideal gift for the recent computer science graduate or a special treat for the network programmer!

The 4.4BSD TCP/IP Networking Data Structures Poster is based on Volumes 1 and 2. It measures 24" x 36"and is shipped folded in the box.

Expensive and enormous, this foot-wide stack of books are well worth the investment if you really have that desire to know *everything* about TCP/IP.
My only complaint, and a small one at that - the "illustrations" promised by the title are really just screenshots of packet captures, but hey, whatddya expect from a book on TCP/IP :o)

An excellent collection of books with brilliant descriptions. I would however caution that tcp/ip for transactions is not currently a widely used extension to the tcp/ip protocol, so your expectations of the relevance of that volume may vary. You may just want volume 1 and consider trawling the RFCs. Keep your eyes open for the 2nd edition which is apparently due for publication this year.

In response to the other comment - yes, this is a geeky book. To fully appreciate the benefits, you do need to be familiar with IP before reading this.

Format: Hardcover
This is a truly terrible book. The english is appaling, it makes little or no sense. This book is only for people with a detailed knowleage of TCP/IP not any one starting the subject. Stevens has no concept of bulllet points and has vast tracks on incomprehensible techie jargon. If you are required to buy this book it would be best to investigate this subject before trying this book.

Best books about TCP/IP to start 27 Nov. 2012
By Sergei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
[ The TCP/IP set by Comer + TCP/IP Illustrated set by Richard Stevens + The TCP/IP Guide by Charles M. Kozierok ] and are the only books about TCP/IP stack that are worth reading.

Comer is a bit dryer than Stevens
Stevens has excellent examples
Kozierok has more details and drawing / pictures

All the above books will provide everything you need to know

Code impementation is provided by Comer and Stevens

Next step would be books like "Unix Network Programming" by Stevens, "Understanding Linux Network Internals" by Benvenuti,
"The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming..." by Kerrisk, etc etc etc

Bible for TCP/IP 2 Dec. 2007
By R. S. Shyaam Sundhar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a bible, sliced into 3 neat pieces to explain and demonstrate everything related to TCP/IP right from the 0's and 1's in the packet. It is something like a must have set of books for someone who really wants to know the basics of networking right from its foundations.

Proven classic book 19 May 2008
By Mr. Valeriy Kozlov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I knew that this book is good, but it is more than good. You can find here any IP - related information, explained from simple to complex in all aspects. The information I was trying to find from different sources (Wikipedia etc), is just concentrated in the book.
Excellent resource for TCP/IP and UDP protocols 14 Dec. 2013
By Jeff Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very well written and a wealth of information useful for building a better understanding of TCP/IP and UDP communications protocols and how network resources process data transmitted with these standards.
