By Kam
I was very tempted to give this book 5 stars for it's organization, topic depth and ability to teach a pretty complex subject without losing the reader or boring him to death. The only reason I didn't was I felt the book could have been trimmed down a little because there were too many unnecessary sections. It's one heck of a weighty tome! For example IMHO the IP class and subnet addressing chapters went on for too long and the early chapters concerning name resolution could have been cut altogether since they just give background information leading up to DNS without explaining the nuts and bolts of DNS. However, I would still highly recommend this book if it's your 1st or only TCP/IP book you are going to buy because of it's easy reading style, which is rare for TCP/IP books. Coming from a non-networking software background I found this book immensely helpful on my way to becoming a network S/W engineer.

Remember you can read this book for free on the web if you don't mind staring at a screen since that's where it originated.

I found Kozierok's book to be well written and very detailed. It is an encyclopedic reference on the TCP/IP protocol. The author's objective was to write a book with the reader in mind and I found to be the case. Key concepts are clearly identified in the book. The index was quite detailed making it easy to look up topics. I would say that the book is very exhaustive in its treatment. Pretty well everything related to TCP/IP is found in the book. The book is not a textbook in that there aren't any problems/exercises. However, it isn't meant to be a textbook, it's meant to be a reference, and this it does very well. I applaud Mr. Kozierok for a job well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference Jan. 29 2007
I needed to get up-to-speed quickly on networking technologies and this book allowed me to do it.

It is well organized and most sections can be read independently (although it flows very well when read cover-to-cover). There aren't any assumptions about previous networking knowledge so it's great for newbies too.

Now that I've read it, I'll continue to refer back to it when I forget something or need a clarification.
