The fifth edition covers BIND 9.3.2, the most recent release of the BIND 9 series, as well as BIND 8.4.7. BIND 9.3.2 contains further improvements in security and IPv6 support, and important new features such as internationalized domain names, ENUM (electronic numbering), and SPF (the Sender Policy Framework). Whether you're an administrator involved with DNS on a daily basis or a user who wants to be more informed about the Internet and how it works, you'll find that this book is essential reading.
About the Author
Cricket Liu graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, that great bastion of free speech, unencumbered Unix, and cheap pizza. He joined Hewlett-Packard after graduation and worked for HP for nine years.Cricket began managing the hp.com zone after the Loma Prieta earthquake forcibly transferred the zone's management from HP Labs to HP's Corporate Offices (by cracking a sprinkler main and flooding a Labs computer room). Cricket was email@example.com for over three years, and then joined HP's Professional Services Organization to co-found HP's Internet Consulting Program.Cricket left HP in 1997 to form Acme Byte & Wire, a DNS consulting and training company, with his friend Matt Larson. Network Solutions acquired Acme in June 2000, and later the same day merged with VeriSign. Cricket worked for a year as Director of DNS Product Management for VeriSign Global Registry Services.Cricket joined Infoblox, a company that develops DNS and DHCP appliances, in March, 2003. He is currently their Vice President of Architecture.Cricket, his wife, Paige, their son, Walt, and daughter, Greta, live in California with their two Siberian Huskies, Annie and Dakota.

Paul earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse, and a Master of Science degree from Purdue University.Paul worked on BIND for the HP-UX 7.0 and 8.0 releases.

Anyhow, I would like to say big big thank you to authors as the book helped us immensely in completing DNS and network design part almost in no time. There was no technology we came across that went on so smoothly. Clearly explained examples (tens of them), ready and working codes for most of the situations, plus great insight on probably all aspects of DNS integration into small business network - all that saved us time, hair and money as we tackled the tasks ourselves.
Recently, we have replaced our Exchange mail server with Solaris (Comm Suite) one and can't be happier. The book was in use again and again it was dead easy to configure and run BIND. Exactly as described. Very happy reader, would recommend to anyone.
If you're looking for a book on DNS that will help you from starting out to becoming "Mr. Classless in.addr.arpa" buy it.
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.
I read my first copy nearly 10 years ago and with each upgrade (I've skipped every other one ish) it just keep itself current without backtracking. The familiarity of the book is a great bonus for me as I know I can pick up the new edition in another 5 years time and just get the new and relevant information that I need from it while still finding any example or detail quickly. As a sysadmin who has been doing DNS for nearly 10 years this is one of the books I would not want to be without.
