2, pg. 485. paragraph 2 - "this processing is done by tcp_v4_hnd_req" is not right, actually tcp_v4_hnd_req expects a SYN-ACK. If SYN comes, it does nothing.
The book is aimed at the engineers and programmers implementing dedicated or embedded systems including sockets, network interfaces, application protocols and practical considerations. This is an intermediate level book. Some programming experience is all but required, as is some background in Linux
The CD included with the book includes the source code developed in the book, much of which can be modified to fit many quasi-standard applications, and a considerable amount of additional technical information on Linux and the particular aspects of TCP/IP. It also includes an implementation of a sample NADA protocol suite.
Reading the book it does seem like there wasn't much editing: It's easy to spot a typo every couple of pages (some times there is a completely duplicated paragraph); I've seen a couple of mistakes and the writing is quite repetitive at times. Additionally, it seems like some content was shifted around at the very last minute which is odd for the second edition of the book.
Even with it's flaws I think it does a better job than most. The only real contender is Linux Networking Architecture which in my opinion is better written and clearer, however in some areas (notably the transport layer) it's more brief. I would rather have an expanded edition of that book that went into more details, but this does a reasonable job.
