This is a textbook I needed for uni. It's an eye opener in a lot of ways. It explains in fairly lucid detail many concepts I knew of but practically knew little about, like IP addressing, multiplexing and so on. I'd argue it'd be a good resource for someone interested in these things, regardless of whether they're a student or not.

Good book, good investment really.

Interesting book, the one I read was the 12th edition for my MIS589 class, it deals with a lot of networks design, security and managements topics and I recommend it for IT managers or any other half technical half managerial IT roles, chap. 6,7&12 were the best!!

Clearly written with lots of war stories to give context. Not too long either (only 500 pages). I'm looking forward to multiple readings. ...more

Great intro to Data Communications and Networking. Easy to read and written in layman's terms. I read the book without a professor's guidance and had very few problems picking up the concepts. ...more
