Regular readers of these reviews know that I get excited when a book
teaches me things I didn't know. If the author can do that and also
write well and be entertaining, I tend to fall over in a swoon.
Well, yes, this book knocked me out. The subtitle is "Everything
you need to know that wasn't on the CCNA Exam" and it's all that and
so much more.
First, the author apolgizes for concentrating on Cisco equipment.
He didn't need to: even if you've never touched a piece of Cisco hardware
in your life, you'll still find this valuable. If your world does
include Cisco, it will be even more so, but don't discard this as
less valuable if not.
I particularly enjoyed that the author illustrates many concepts
with mistakes and misteps he made himself. This isn't ivory tower
networking, this is a guy who trips over cables and knocks out a whole
Networking from A-Z. Switches, routers and hubs, oh my. Everything
you need to know and then some.
Worth the money, worth twice the money, maybe worth three times
the money. Buy it.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
