Some of the chapter quiz questions are a bit specific to the examples given in the book rather than the underlying principles, but I found the vast majority of them to be helpful in assessing my progress.
This book and supporting materials have been made available online for free by the benevolent author at oercommons.org
A big thanks to Chuck! I am eager to reccomend this book to anyone looking to get into tech.
I have the paperback. I have read portions of this in pdf format. Both are great. The illustrations are simple, but effective.
If you have next to no knowledge of networking, having this book under your belt (should not take you longer than a week or so to read through, at a leisurely pace), reading through this will ensure your acquaintance with the various concept which you will later delve into further with other networking textbooks, which can often be dry and dull. The author does a marvelous job of keeping the various concepts fresh in your head so you can tie them all together. To get lost in the details so early in the game could be counterproductive to your integration of these concepts.

This title explains the various layers of the OSI model using an approach for building network hardware/software. I feel I have a better understanding of the Domain Name System (DNS), IP routing, the Transport Layer and the Application Layer.
Various topics are explained using helpful illustrations and drawing parallels with other life examples. Recommended reading for the curious about networks or anyone about to start a networking course for the basics.
However, and as several others have pointed out, the illustrations of how aspects of the internet work dont appear in the kindle version. Ironic that a book which sets out to explain how the internet operates to deliver content reliably and quickly appears to be technically incompetent as regards transmitting images to electronic devices. Harrumph - not good enough! In this case it seems you are better of learning about the internet via an old fashioned book through the post!
Sadly, it doesn't go much into other aspects of networking, just how the Internet works.
The book is not too "American". There are very occasional typos or slips.
Nearly all the diagrams/illustrations are essentially worthless.
I must confess I still have some questions having read the book, but that is most likely my own failing.
A painless, if slightly narrowly focused introduction to networks. 4 stars.
