I found this book covered too many points on the spectrum. The first half goes over everything BUT SIP. Most people who want to learn the generic SIP structure already know how a simple telephone and data network operates.
This takes a little too long to get the the "meat" but from there on gives a pretty good detail of the SIP format for anyone looking at understanding the basic SIP code format.
As a fundamentals book for anyone wanting to start learning SIP programming it would be a good reference to have on the shelf. Skip the first half though.

Good book on SIP. Bought it to expand our knowledge of SIP in an Asterisk enviroment.

The initial introduction is a bit too-long. I think that when you buy a book on SIP, you already know IP telephony and alikes works.

Before buying, keep in mind that the book is on SIP, generally speaking, and SIP is used on lots of places, not only on Internet/IP telephony.

This is a great book for absolute beginners. If you have already read the SIP RFC(s) then this book is clearly not for you, on the other hand if you are an engineer beginning to learn SIP then this could provide a great introduction.

The first few chapters are not about SIP but about telecom, VoIP in general and IETF process. I found that quite useful too.

After having read this book you will be able to understand RFC 3261 much better. This is a fast read, I finished this book in a day when I read it several years ago. This could also be a whirlwind refresher for someone who had once worked on SIP but now wants to brush up for a sales meeting tommorow.

The book is organized in a fluid, logical manner, and is super for me, because I am one of many people coming from a heritage telecom career that's trying to learn about SIP.

Highly recommended!

Takes the mystery out of SIP. If you think in terms of old style POTS lines, it brings you into the new world.

This is the best book for who wants to know about SIP initially, especially on what SIP can do conceptually. This book is feasible for everyone that includes executives, managers and engineers. This book also provides very good related information in the Internet Forum.

By Tamas Bohm on December 5, 2014
Format: Paperback
I advise to avoid this book, as it is based on the obsolete RFC 2543. Just a year after the book was published, RFC 3261 became the new SIP standard, that is widely used today (e.g. adopted for IMS networks). It is important to know that there are major changes between RFC 2543 and RFC 3261, e.g. the usage of the Request-URI and routing headers (loose routing introduced instead of the legacy strict routing mechanism). So you would face a few surprises if you learn and design based on this book (I did so...).

Also, the book contains quite a few annoying errors. I'm not much disturbed by grammatical errors mentionned in another review, but in many cases, the error is in the examples (e.g. values of headers messed up). This can cause a lot of confusions, even if you need to learn about the old SIP standard.

Otherwise, it is a nicely written, easy-to-read book. It's a pity there is no new edition, as it would be excellent for beginners.
