More About the Author
"This book provides a diverse and solid foundation that will be immensely beneficial to new network engineers, those looking for a refresher or developers" -- Alan Young, Google, Network Surveillance Team "i haven't had time to read the manuscript completely. however, what i like about the book is it covers all the topics from basics to voip to mpls vpn to ssl and this is one of the key factor that separates this book. unlike other tcp/ip books which talk mostly about history this one talks about what is happening today. another great thing i like is the use of diagram and tools." -- Amit KT, Network Engineer, Peak Web Consulting, SF, CA "It looks like a very good primer for someone who is about to get serious about working in the networking field. The book describes several things that we take for granted like standards organizations. But if you are new to the industry it is good to be educated about how we arrive at standards." -- Landon Scott, Channel SE, Juniper Networks

I would recommend to buy this book together with the one from Tanenbaum mentioned above, or Stallings Data Comms. PERFECT BOOK! The "Stevens" of the new age.
Comparing it with the classic TCP/IP illustrated is only a marketing trik as far as I can understand because the "TCP/IP" series was deeply educational (meaning there was at least some thought in how the topics were presented) while "illustrated network" could only pose as a reference for the seasoned engineer.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Although I have not (yet) read the book through to the end cover, I am thoroughly enjoying the text.
Aside from being extremely well written, every discussion and example is based on a single, real and complete network, that is kept consistent throughout the text.
If you are looking for a broad yet "deep enough" explanation of the TCP/IP suite of protocols, I strongly recommend this book.
