From the Publisher:

Written by a leading computer networking authority, this text provides a thorough state-of-the-art overview of networking and Internet technology and is ideal for those with little or no background in the subject. Broad in coverage -- and highly accessible -- it provides a comprehensive, self-contained tour through all of networking -- from the lowest levels of data transmission and wiring to the highest levels of application software. An accompanying multimedia CD-ROM and Web site provide opportunities for a variety of hands-on experiences.

From the Author:

The enthusiastic response to Computer Networks and Internets in the United States and around the world has been exciting. The book enjoys a broad appeal in both industry and academia. I have received many positive comments from readers praising the coverage of the subject, technical accuracy, and clear illustrations. For example, a manager wrote thanking me for a technical book that explained networking principles in a language he could understand. An engineer wrote ``I love your book.''

It is especially noteworthy that both professors and students have praised the book. In a review, one student wrote, ``At last, a text that is understandable.'' A professor who taught a course out of the book wrote, ``I think it's great.''

Thanks to everyone who has sent comments. The positive feedback is extremely gratifying -- it makes the long hours of effort and attention to detail worthwhile.

If you purchase a copy, I know you will find it both comprehensive and easy to comprehend.
