Read the entire review of this book.
Christian Huitema is the former Chair of the Internet Activities Board and is active in the IPv6 effort. IPv6: The New Internet Protocol is a straightforward technical description of the various RFCs that together make up the IPv6 specification. Interestingly, the competition for this book is not so much Stewart Miller's book, but the RFCs themselves, which are clearly written and well organized. However, Huitema provides additional explanation for the purpose of various features and for the operation of the protocol. Huitema's book is based on the latest Internet draft documents, rather than the 1995 RFCs.

From the Publisher
As the Internet evolves, so too must its communication protocols. This book, written by the Chair of the Internet Architecture Board and author of the bestselling ROUTING IN THE INTERNET, is a first look at the next generation Internet Protocol (IP as in TCP/IP) known as IP Version 6. The Internet Protocol is the glue that holds the Internet together and that will make possible new applications, such as multicasting, requiring increased bandwidth.
