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.
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.
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.
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.
