I really looked forward to getting my hands on this long-awaited second edition. Unfortunately, there's been a switch of authors, and, boy, does it show. Stevens' original was a joy to read because the writing style was excellent, and easy to follow even for someone with very little protocols exposure. The same thing can unfortunately not be said of this edition, so what used to be the Bible on TCP/IP internals now looks like it's an invitation for another author to create a book that's the true successor to Stevens' masterpiece.

Deceiving book.
I do not believe Stevens wrote a word. Stevens books are simple the best ever writen on the subject. Be them Unix programming to sockets, say it.

Because one is very technical expert of something does not mean he is a good writer. This is exactly the case, boring book, hard to read, at every page I was just but tired. This is just the oposite with Stevens books.

Hey Kevin go to Stevens and apologise him for this disgusting book. Didn't you get anything from his 1st volume? This yes was an amazing book and yet no other even compares.

Hey you all amazon clients, buy the 1st volume it instead of this one.

For all those subtle TCP/IP details you occasionally need. The book is rich in detail. Each chapter has a thread (ie its more than a reference book) but you can read the chapters in isolation or in any order.

TCP/IP is often misunderstood but forms the basis of most contemporary hacking so a guide like this is essential reading for anyone responsible for cyber security.

Took it for my CCIE preparations, and I was really happy with it, goes into details without killing your brain with boring theory details
