I found this book very helpful in understanding what is increasingly an ubiquitous but invisible part of the infrastructure that make up the world that we live in. Being in product development, I needed a book to help make sense of all the different means for networking. This book presents that information in a very intuitive way, and helps the reader understand future advances in networking. This is written at a level for the technical staff who may need to understand this topic enough at a functional level but not at the administrative/operational level.

The section on secure communication was what I needed at the time I purchased the book, but the book's organization, level of detail and readibility will definitely make this a popular reference book.

I have not completed the reading as yet but from what I have found so far this is a very good tutorial on computer networks.

Even on the subjects I used to have good prior knowledge of I have learned a different perspective and interesting new details. The text is also marked with many humouristic comments, which make the reading even easier.

The issues are well explained and served in a way facilitating good comprehension.

The reason I do not give the book 5 stars is that I am still some way from completing my reading so I do not have the overall picture as yet. However, I am really looking forward to move on with this assignment.

This is the best computer network book by far comparing to others for professionals as well as beginners. Better than Kurose's whose selling point, "top-down approach", is quite questionable approach to the beginners, better than Peterson's which I believe is a bit mazy to see a big picture of computer networking.
Only issue is that this book has been around for 8 years without update, while the computer networking is one of the most rapidly changing subjects. Although the fundamental part of this book still stands, it's already high time to update.

Study online Swedish University and need this book for the course. Found it on Swedish bookstore for 30% more expensive and not include the postage. Thanks to amzzon.com I got it cheaper and even earlier than what was mentioned on the invoice.

Good book with general overview about network system. Good book for those want to know what is network but not for those who wants to specialize in some area with computer network.

I bought this for classes and it is good. Beware it is like the main teacher in that somewhat pedantic or involved which is good if you are studying the whole shebang of networking. It is definitely going to give you the broad overview and then every nuance. Not really a practical more a college overview that is now dated but gives you the whole meal except the things covered in the new course taught by author. Since the new text is a four star meal at a New York dinner restaurant in price this might be still a good alternative.
