It's an easy and interesting reading where the author goes throughout first aspects of High performance without missing important details but not going that deep to something we can easily find over the internet.
It's one of the clearest explanations I've ever seen about TCP Slow Start, congestions among others and why they're so important. It's also very rare to find great explanations about Building blocks of UDP and why WebRTC just nailed it the concept of not being a first class protocol to be chosen amongst new projects.
One very interesting point too is about Mobile which I saw many articles out there but mostly failed to refer to some important concepts about Bandwidth as to why it is too variable and how to deal with.
It's easy to find many books about performance, Linux Kernel Networking where you can go and dive deep a particular object, but it's rare to find a book which can combine the bigger picture in a way that makes you feel comfortable and keep you interested after the second chapter.
In fact, I am already recommending to my co-workers and friends who are interested to step in to performance studies and any colleague of mine who wants to understand why things work instead of How they work.
I read the online version of the book and I wonder if its clarity is the result of the publishing process, maybe it got lots of good questions from early readers. Who knows, anyway this book should be read by any Web developer, great content from an expert written superbly.
