This book is definitely dated. That's no surprise in a technology book. However, the basics behind network programming are still sound and worthwhile; and while the vocabulary has changed the principles in the book underlie Voldemort, Cassandra, MapReduce, Thrift, Protocol Buffers and more.

Unfortunately the book predates the Eight Fallacies of Distributed Computing ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacie... ). Read those first, and refer to them several times while reading the book so that you can take some of the objectives with a large enough grain of salt.
