Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

As you might imagine, Teach Yourself TCP/IP in 14 Days provides a rapid introduction to the TCP/IP protocols and to a few commonly used applications that are built on top of them. The discussion is very lucid and emphasizes the fundamental concepts behind a given protocol; it does a good job of not letting the mass of details obscure the reasoning. Each section ends with a quiz and series of questions (and answers), so you can test your knowledge of each topic. The book also includes useful sections on sample installations and a nice discussion of sockets. As an added bonus, the book's appendix contains an index that maps an application and/or a protocol to the appropriate RFC (Request for Comments) document.

If you somehow developed a great interest in the internetworking even though not working in that field, I'd recommand you to read THIS book to get started.
I did feel sorry that I wasted lots of time on the other 3 books I read when I started to explore internetworking. Those give me only good pieces of details about the layers, the protocols, and some parts of internetworking technology, but unclearly or loosely relate them to each other.
If you are a kind of person who's always trying to draw the big picture first with the relationships of the components among each other, and then fit in more-detailed pieces, I bet you'll be very saitisfied by this super book. You would agree that it makes sense of the parts of internetworking to the whole, and makes sense of other loosely organized books on the same topic to you, provided that you didn't ignore the importance of the first two chapters (or days' materials).
Another beauty of the book is that the details are given gradually with a very careful selection, so that you'll never get burried in the details but only controls over them. Thanks.

Format: Paperback
This book is quite dated now. It does cover the basics of TCP/IP and goes in quite a lot of detail.

I found that the books covered several areas that I wasn't very interested in eg Gateway Protocols, Network File System etc.

This books does not cover Windows or Linux so may not be very useful in todays computing environment. However if you can pick up a cheap copy then it may be worth adding to your library for later reference.

Got it, read it, understood it with no problems, and keep it always handy as a reference. Really complete, and just enough informative - never boring, as some protocol-specific technical books I've read.

Format: Paperback
This book does not do a good job at its most important task - explaining things well. It would certainly not be a good first book on the subject and the technical information is not in-depth enough to make it a good second book on the subject either. Also, its a bit dated, the Windows NT examples are based on NT version 3.51.

Format: Paperback
Far less patronizing than "Dummies..", and not as matter-of-fact as "Internetworking..", this book provides solid fundemental material for developing understanding of TCP/IP. It even provides tests at the end of each chapter. While one shouldn't expect to be an expert at TCP/IP after 2 weeks, one will have a very good understanding of this protocol, its relationship to the OSI model, and its application in contemporary networks. Very highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book is poorly written, poorly organized and is full of errors. Don't waste your money on it. The glossary is inadequate, the index is no better, and the author uses acronyms without telling you about them. I found over 50 errors in the first half of the book. I would not recomment it to anyone. Surely there are better products on the market.
