From the Publisher
A teach by example approach to TCP/IP
Bestselling author W. Richard Stevens teams up with long-time colleague and TCP/IP expert Gary Wright in TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2. Unlike other books on the subject, TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2 presents the de facto standard implementation of TCP/IP from the 4.4 BSD release. The authors use a teach-by-example approach that combines hundreds of pictures and descriptions of all data structures and algorithms with 15,000 lines of code to help readers master the TCP/IP protocol suite. The book's timely coverage includes the newest TCP/IP features: multicasting, TCP's window scale and timestamp options, and protection against wrapped sequence numbers.
From the Back Cover
TCP/IP Illustrated, an ongoing series covering the many facets of TCP/IP, brings a highly-effective visual approach to learning about this networking protocol suite.
TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2 contains a thorough explanation of how TCP/IP protocols are implemented. There isn't a more practical or up-to-date bookothis volume is the only one to cover the de facto standard implementation from the 4.4BSD-Lite release, the foundation for TCP/IP implementations run daily on hundreds of thousands of systems worldwide.
Combining 500 illustrations with 15,000 lines of real, working code, TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2 uses a teach-by-example approach to help you master TCP/IP implementation. You will learn about such topics as the relationship between the sockets API and the protocol suite, and the differences between a host implementation and a router. In addition, the book covers the newest features of the 4.4BSD-Lite release, including multicasting, long fat pipe support, window scale, timestamp options, and protection against wrapped sequence numbers, and many other topics.
Comprehensive in scope, based on a working standard, and thoroughly illustrated, this book is an indispensable resource for anyone working with TCP/IP.

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.

It does provide an excellent base to understand what networking code should look like, why it is so complex, and how the developers for the 4.2 code solved the icky problems they faced.
It sort of bridges the gap between weekend reading, and a manual. And trust me I've read a lot of technical manuals.
