1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, half-hearted, probably automated conversion of the printed version, 25 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TCP/IP Illustrated, Vol. 2: The Implementation (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing Series) (Kindle Edition)
It's not worth the price. I had the chance to compare it with the printed book. The Kindle version presents itself as the result of a half-hearted, probably automated conversion.

Most typographic conventions from the printed book were disregarded. Some enumerations are indistinguishable from subheadings. Many indentations are lost. Most of the time it is an indistinguishable stream of continuous text, quotes and remarks and even numbers! (In the printed version, mono spaced numbers placed on the page margin are code references) In the middle of a section figures were inserted up to four pages ahead.

And it lacks important content. The valuable references on the end-paper, the TCP state machine and key to the macro and function definitions have not made it into the Kindle version.

Code samples and formulas are presented either in blurry, awfully low resolution scans or in proportional fonts with random line breaks. The table summarizing mbuf functions is of such low resolution that it really gets useless: the characters are not recognizable. The code sample in figure 28.1. is incomplete.
