From the Author:

Intended for beginners
When I wrote "The Internet Book" my intended audience was would be network administrators and those just beginning to get involved in network architectures in a professional sense. Essentially, these are people whose place of work assigned them the responsibility of network creation/administration because "there was no one else to do it."

I have been pleasantly surprised by how many college students have also latched on to my work as a source of basic information about the Internet and what makes it work.

To all my readers I say thank you and keep your eyes peeled for my other titles.

Sincerely, D.C.
