2008-09-24, Amazon, need it to do my CS6262 homework bah. Then again, Radia Perlman is a real American badass, almost certainly the best female networking specialist (who could begin to compete? Sally Floyd maybe?) currently or in history -- Interconnections blew me away, and I'm willing to risk a used purchase with her name on it. We'll see...

btw, "The Radia Perlman Series on Networking and Network Security"? Is that really necessary?

This book is one of my all-time favorites, probably because I read it right after my first course in group theory and Galois fields and was so excited to see the real-world applications of all the theory I'd been digesting.

I found the writing to be humorous, engaging, and easy to understand.
