I bought this book because in my job I have to do a lot of installations, configuration, troubleshooting, etc with the various firewalls--and becuase I thought the title was pretty funny. My book came in last week, and I've bee reading it ever since and I have to say it's AMAZING. The things is 1300 pages long and must weigh 5 pounds. It covers PIX, Check Point, ISA, Nokia better than most books just on those things. It's literally like getting 5 or 6 books in one. One of the things I really like about it is that it's much wider than most books, so you can actually lay it open flat and refer to it while doing your configs. I'm studying now for my CCSA also, and this will certainly help with that also. Thanks!

Another firewall book comma
has lots and lost of information, none of which is definitive
Do yourself a favor and purchase something more precise to the firewall your trying to implement, such as the the Umer kahn book about cisco pix, or any of the other numerous titles that cover more specific ideas
buying this book is like buying The Best Damn Cookbook when your lookin for a book on baking cookies (period)
overly presumptuous, grossly incomplete, less then definitive, can you tell im bored (period)

Seriously, this huge book is chock full of information on various firewall products. It is well written and technically sound. Anyone who deals with security/networks/firewalls, etc. will think this a good book. And it's huge--good thing Amazon has free shipping...

This book will help you with basic and intermediate setups of certain firewalls. Of all the commercial firewalls out there, it allows you to look good in front of clients with various types. However to become advanced, I suggest FW speccific bppks.

You know how sometimes you buy a book and after you're done reading it you say to yourself, "that a waste of money." You don't have to worry about that with this book. Given how much I learned from it, it actually feels like a bargain.
