Jun 21, Casper Gasper rated it it was amazing. Still one of the best books to read and study for networking, despite it's age. To give you one idea how old this book is, there is a section towards the end that lists other TCP services and there's a few lines on a new application called the World Wide Web: Feb 24, Shailesh rated it it was amazing.
The first technical book I read. There is no better introduction to Network Protocols for beginners - both for technical and non-technical folks.
I absolutely loved it and my love affair with network continues Mar 30, Pete rated it it was amazing. To go even deeper get volume 2 which discusses the actual code implementation. Dec 07, Wbenetti rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This includes network engineers. Yes, you. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that you know all about routing protocols and what else is there to running routers besides that and ACLs?
Well, you're wrong and you should feel bad for thinking that. Lots of stuff goes across routers, this post, my last site order.
All of it uses fundamentals covered in this book, and understanding how the transport layer works gives you a leg up when designing networks. Pick this up or the Douglas E. Comer book and love it.
The worst case scenario is that you hate it. Since it's hardcover you can use it to hit people who tell you that something is broken and it's a network problem. Jan 17, Allisonperkel rated it it was amazing Shelves: Thanks to its numerous detailed but clear descriptions, fragments of computer networking knowledge you might have get woven together into a whole, and to-the-point details that the book is peppered with are the markers that fall into the empty spaces.
The dynamics of the protocols TCP in particular are so well described and illustrated! The problems this book has, I think, are attributable to the changes made in the second edition.
I've never read the first, but I've skimmed over some of it. The shift in the material covered feels exactly right the one exception - which made me sad - was ditching the routing protocols , but there were certain points in the book at which I really had to summon my resolve to push through. Why did this happen?
I think the reason is that the writing got too terse and convoluted, and didn't have the same quality that Stevens' writing exhibits. The wording and flow demonstrate that the topic is very easy for Kevin R. Fall, but unless you already know what he's talking about, you'll only too often be struggling to keep up. Then you'll fail and reread whole paragraphs that are unfortunately written with the density of mathematical proofs.
I can't hold that against the book though, and I'd still read the second edition over the first. There are some challenges, but there's so much to like! May 09, Sean S rated it really liked it. The Protocols a.
Excellent read, and a good reference for the fundamentals and history alike. Nov 16, Michael rated it it was amazing.
One of the classics. Apr 09, Avran rated it it was amazing.
Hands down the best book on networking. Another example of a book about computer technology that is outdated and a good read at once. The middle layers of network technology are described in minute detail, at just the right level of abstraction.
This book originally published in around I think predates the advent of something like search engines for the WWW by years, and yet all the technologies described are still relevant today - or at least still working under the hood of other things.
The thread binding the whole book together is the author's intent to not just describe, but to actually show what's happening when you're running this or that inter network protocol.
