This review is from: DNS and BIND (Paperback)
You can set up DNS by following instructions found on The Internet, but if anything goes wrong you could spend considerable time looking for relevant information to fix it, and even more time making sense of the, sometimes conflicting, advice/explanations.
I am still reading this book (currently finishing chapter 4), but I have found it full of well structured information that puts DSN and BIND into context so the rather brief explanations of setting up a DNS server that I have read elsewhere now make much more sense. By the end of chapter 4 I should be able to get my server set up and accessible from The Internet, if required, and be confident that it will do what I expect. Later chapters provide information about other configurations, troubleshooting, expanding the network, security etc.
For a technical reference, I am finding this book to be easy to read.
If you are intending to have your own server on The Internet then I would classify this book as essential.
If you just want to get DNS working correctly within your own organisation or personal small network this book should simplify life considerably.
