Format: Paperback
i recently wrote a review of this book on openbsd journal at [web page] overall, this is the best ipv6 book i have read so far. hagen covers the standards with clarity and skill, and presents the information well. the illustrations are pretty good at showing the structure of the packets and the formats.
ipv6 essentials does well with explaining the internals of ipv6. routing, control messages, structures, advantages. this is fantastic, and if you're looking to learn ipv6 internals or thinking about migrating a network to support ipv6, this is a great book.
however, this book isn't for a typical user of a network. if you're at home and want to start on ipv6 (ie by tunneling to the 6bone), you're going to be at a loss. this book is slim on how t get up and running on ipv6 on windows, linux, bsd, etc ... this is its biggest weakness. other weaknesses include a lack of solid material for configuring routers for ipv6 (ie QoS, the intricacies of the routing protocols and integration), migrating applications (ie DNS zones), and security (it focuses only on IPsec).
as such, i give this book a "fair" review. it's good at what it does, but it really left me wanting a lot more useful information. not a typical oreilly book (which usually focuses on actually using stuff). 3.5 stars or so ...
having spoken to the author, recently, it turns out that a detailed protocol level discussion, as opposed to implementation, was her goal. and it was well met, so i'm bumping this to 4 stars.

This is an excellent book on IPv6 that does not shy away from providing details at every corner of the protocol. I've seen books in the past with twice the pages but hardly provide a fraction of the information you will find in this book, presented in a concise but comprehensive manner.
It is an excellent resource for IPv6 particularly to readers with background in IPv4. Not only does the author try to highlight the differences between the two protocols (take for example how the two header formats have evolved), she also explains the motivation behind each change along the way.
Of course, the author's diligent quotation of all relevant RFCs, including the ones being obsoleted where applicable, turns the book into a valuable "hypertext style" reference for IPv6, where the reader can delve further into particular areas of interest.
