5.0 out of 5 stars Great for getting up to speed with IOS and as a reference., 22 Feb 2002
By A Customer
I was fairly new to IOS but had an understanding of TCP/IP and routing. This book proved excellent at explaining the Cisco terminology and approach. It also has a very good IOS command reference section that makes it very easy to find enough information to get routers up and running. Probably not one for beginners or experts but great for intermediate level users. Worth the money for the reference section alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you use Cisco IOS, buy this book!, 14 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has become my 'Cisco IOS Bible' and is one the finest and most reliable reference books I own. At 600 pages this book is only a Nutshell because it has so succinctly condensed down what is a huge subject, apparently without removing any technical content. Whenever my other Cisco books are lacking or have all-too-often editing mistakes this one consistently comes to the rescue.
I'm presently studying for my CCNP Remote Access exam using the Cisco Press book, but this O'Reilly gem does not leave my side as I'd be lucky to turn more than a few pages of the Cisco Press book without relying on it for clarification.
If you have any involvement in Cisco IOS management, buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant introduction to IOS, 25 Jan 2008
By 
PC-B (Surrey, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Cisco IOS in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
This book took me from zero knowledge of IOS up to the stage where I have successfully implemented a sizeable network of Cisco devices. The explanation of concepts is clear and concise and the reference section invaluable. All O'Reilly books are of very high quality, but this one is really exceptional.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cisco IOS in a nutshell..., 15 April 2003
By A Customer
and not much more. But then again, they did not promise much else... For more in depth coverage of routing protocols check out "Cisco IOS for IP Routing" by Andrew Colton. These two together should take you a long way to a good understanding of Cisco routing.
