A must have for anyone who wants to go beyond basic networking. Very few books that let you get into TCP/IP at this level without being in too deep for every day use.

Superb for novice and experienced Wireshark users Oct. 29 2012
By Bud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The second edition covers a lot of the fantastic new features available in Wireshark 1.8+, while not ignoring the functionality of earlier versions. The book covers configuration, capture/display/colorizaton rules (with excellent examples), easy navigation tips, and in-depth analysis and troubleshooting hints for the most common protocols. Lots of free downloads at the book's website - commented trace files (discussed and analyzed in the book), profiles, and videos. Well worth the price!

And don't forget Laura's insightful (and always comical) comments and asides that make her such a superb presenter. They're all here, too. This is no dull, dry technical manual.

I also recommend the test booklet, even if you're not planning for certification. Trying to answer the test questions identifies the most important material in the book, and helps cement the material in memory. Again, well worth a few extra bucks.

Great book for understanding common protocols. Nov. 4 2012
By Steve Occh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Even though this is a long book, it a great book and contains a lot of information.

The book starts off with understanding the WireShark application and how you can customize the application to make it easier to find out what you are looking for. After that the book jumps into basic analysis and what features Wireshark has (Follow TCP Stream, Expert Systems, Graphs, etc) then dives into the nuts and bolts of popular protocols like HTTP/FTP/DNS/ARP, and the second edition include IPv6 which is great book. This is a great example of a company keeping up with technology.

I will say however, this book is not for the faint the topics are pretty advanced and the case studies go over certain scenarios however. There is also over a GB of extra information such as packet captures to compliment the book. So if you put in enough dedication you'll be able to master Wireshark.

Top Five Non-Fiction Book ever published! Aug. 4 2013
By James J. Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Laura Chappell is a gifted non-fiction writer! This book is enjoyable to read. Laura's mind must be incredibly organized. Laura describes Wireshark methodically and comprehensively. This 'book' is a great example of when the e-reader version is vastly superiority to the hardcopy. Why's that? Because the electronic version of this book is so riddled with hyperlinks, I conceptually consider it an offline Wireshark website! Oh, and Laura did something that so few authors do. She included a ton of color screen captures! And when I say color - I don't just mean she was true to the original screen color. No. I mean that she liberally highlighted things in sharp contrasting colors. I cannot overstate how helpful these screen captures are. The result is a technically dense tome that is so uber-organized and intuitive that my reading speed and retention are off the charts. But it didn't stop there. Laura also included links to download tons of capture files. This allows her students to see examples inside their very own copy of Wireshark. This is a one-stop shop for mastering Wireshark.

Thank you Gerald for an awesome application - that morphed into a lucrative vocation for thousands of people. Thank you Laura for writing such a wonderful book and showing us how to make Wireshark our vocation. I look forward to the day when I begin to master this powerful suite of network diagnostic tools and can earn this certification.

Excellent Resource Jan. 26 2013
By L. Potts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For me this book is exactly what I was looking for.
I needed a reference that would go into more detail and reveal some tried and true strategies, applying Wireshark to solve real world network problems.
The book chronicles many real network problems and how the author went about using Wireshark to solve them.
For me, that is the kind of insight I needed to make better use of this powerful network troubleshooting tool.
It helped me get over the hurdle of being intimidated by the complexity to using Wireshark as a go to troubleshooting tool.
