I was looking for a general overview of networking protocol basics. This short book gave me that and a bit more.

I took this book to get basic understanding how network is working. To get basic concepts of protocols, devices and differences between layers.

Just finished the book and I'm very happy about it. It is short, but very concentrated. Easy to read but a lot of information is included. I believe there are only basic principles included and for network-related-person it might look too plain. But to get strong basic knowledge this book is just perfect.
