And this book gives fifty to sixty pages of printed RFCs, may be to make the book bulky.

Bottom line: those vaguely familiar with IPv6 already will notice a number of mistakes, but then they really don't need this book.
Chris Abbey
IPv6 is a streamlined version of the current IP version, IPv4 and among the topics this book covers is these various differences.

This book is for novices who has very little knowledge on IPv4 and now trying to know something about IPv6. My sincere advice to any serious reader on IPv6 would be, never go for this book. It gives no information but stories about how internet evolved and kind of stuff. And anybody who is working deeply on IPv4 would know that. And this book gives fifty to sixty pages of printed RFCs, may be to make the book bulky.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excelent introduction to the IPv6 protocol. The author always compares IPv4 with IPv6, showing which are the improvements and the good solutions.In other words, it is possible to understand why the IPv6 is necessary, and what are the changes made from IPv4. The only problem of this book is the appendix, 50 pages of RFCs index and texts....

This is a good straightforward introduction to IPv6 for anyone, regardless of whether or not they know much about IP and TCP/IP in general. It explains the problems with IPv4, why IPv6 solves them, covers the issues involved in migrating, pretty much everything about IPv6. Even if you feel comfortable reading RFCs, this book can still help as a quick reference (and it clarifies stuff that isn't made clear in other IPv6/IPng books or in the RFCs either). I liked it.

This book presents IPv6 in an organized way. It explains how it works and what problems it solves. It's a nice book for students and if you know nothing about it, you don't need other books.

"Clearly Explained" is an excellent title, indeed. The novice and expert will both appreciate the information provided. Pete Loshin did a great job with this book.

Format: Paperback
IPV6 Clearly Explained, is the book for anybody who would like to know what is IPV6 is all about. Instead of reading very "dry" RFCs to understand what are the issues that it IPV6 trys to solve and how it is done. One reads a clear description that also refers you to the actual RFCs. So I highly recommend this book for everyone. It also has an introduction of 4 chapters for IPV4 for folks who are not familiar with IP. I like the approach of the book and the way it is organized.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Chris Abbey on May 21, 2004
Format: Paperback
I'm deeply amazed that Morgan Kaufmann let a book out with this bad of an editing job, it's not like them at all. From simple transpositions of figures (swapping the "simple" and "complex" network examples about 8 pages apart) to downright inaccurate figures (text talks about networks A, B, C and D; figure shows networks X, Y and Z) the illustrations are by far the most confusing part of the text. There are however a number of textual errors as well many of them subtle problems in technical content, my favorite example being an IPv6 address displayed with *two* double colons in it, and no, that wasn't in the example of invalid addresses.
The redeeming feature is actually the non-technical content, such as the introductory materials that explain why IPv6 is where it still is today, and how it can move forward, or the project/migration management aspects of network administration that non-seasoned network hands will find accessible and useful.
Bottom line: those vaguely familiar with IPv6 already will notice a number of mistakes, but then they really don't need this book. Those not familiar with IP networking are bound to be confused, especially if they're trying to experiment along the way. Hopefully a second printing, after a thorough technical editorial review, will enable this book to be more than it is today.
