Format: Paperback
If you want a useful and practical tool to explain in plain language how to set up and maintain Cisco routers for small businesses, this book is for you. This is an essential tool that can help anyone from a regular guy like me to a seasoned IT professional understand the world of Cisco CLI. The book is written and organized well, and gives the reader both in-depth understanding of all the basic tasks necesasry to set up and troubleshoot network connestions, and easy access to summaries of essential information that can be used later when looking for answers to specific questions. If you need to understand how to set up Cisco routers in a secure and reliable way, it's all explained here in a consise and readable format.

Format: Paperback
First, a disclaimer: the author works part-time for me. I think pretty highly of his computer, network and programming skills.

Second, I'm possibly a bit more sophisticated about networks than your average non-IT tech, and have actually successfully configured routers before reading this book.

But that said, I sure wish I'd had Neumann's book when I set up my Cicso router. He writes clearly, works in small, manageable steps, and avoids unnecessary jargon. You can't escape jargon. But he makes it manageable: for example, he describes an RJ-45 connecter as a "fat phone connector." He takes care to define the abbreviations before he uses them.

And through those small, manageable steps he coaxes the reader through some pretty sophisticated Cisco configurations, including lost password recovery (yes, I had) and archiving your configuration files.

This is a valuable tutorial and a valuable reference, with a nice set of appendices. Strongly recommended for those whose lives involve Cisco routers.

Format: Paperback
IT in a small business often means wearing a lot of hats. For the IT person who is in weak in networking but wants to do things right, this book presents a great opportunity to learn a lot of great things with a step by step guide.

Solid book with very thorough coverage for the series 800 equipment.

This is not a CCNA prep book, with more focus on practical use but I think it will still help with the CCNA.

This is a great, easy to follow how-to book for configuring Cisco routers. The book is well written and easy to understand -- it is not overly technical. I particularly appreciate the tutorials and configuration examples.
