This 2nd edition book is based on kernel 2.6.16.20. I was expecting more from this book.

Each chapter starts well with a good introdution and brief descriptions of the area of interest but then jumps straight into code snippets with brief text trying to explain the details. As you progress through the book, the number of diagrams reduces to zero and you are just left with pages of code snippets and text. In effect it is providing comments to the TCP/IP source code.

The text annoyed me as it continually made reference to other chapters to say where to find the detail.

This book maybe useful to you if you are trying to understand the source code but you may find it difficult to get a good overview of what is going on.

This book is chock full of details of the workings of the TCP/IP stack under Linux. If you are a newcomer to Linux or TCP/IP, there will be a steep learning-curve ahead of you, though. All in all, I found it a useful book for what I needed to do.
