The 1st chapter of the book alone shows the most useful commands that every administrator needs to know. It also details the architecture of ScreenOS which is the key to creating and implementing a relevant security policy in any network.
The book is well written and organized with CLI commands in bold and CLI responses in plain text which make it easy to differentiate what the user should be typing and what they should be seeing. (There are also some GUI screen shots in the book as well.) The book has excellent examples of packet walks, O.S. Architecture, and network diagrams.
A huge benefit of the book is that it doesn't bore the user with the history of the Internet or TCP/IP, etc. It jumps right in to specific examples and configuration guidelines relevant to what the chapter is trying to cover. The book is also very current and covers almost the latest version of ScreenOS. A great example is that there is an excellent chapter on configuring NSRP (HA) with Dynamic Routing Protocols (to sync routes from DRP's) and how that is configured in ScreenOS 6.0 which was the first release to support that feature. ScreenOS 6.0 is a very current release of ScreenOS.
As a user of ScreenOS for 5 years, I can absolutely say this book will be a welcome addition to my library!
Last note: Chapter 21 covers VSYS or Virtual Systems which is a major strength of ScreenOS and not well understood by many users. That chapter alone makes the book worth the cost.
Like most cookbooks this is a no nonsense guide to configuring certain aspects of the firewalls. If you need to know how to debug and read the output this book will tell you. There is also a fair amount of detail put into explaining certain configurations and what each configuration entry does.
The book is written by some of the most knowledgeable ScreenOS guys in the industry. Stefan Brunner is well known both inside and outside of Juniper. Stefan and his peers have done an excellent job putting together a must have book for anyone working on the ScreenOS firewalls.
