Explains-clearly and holistically, but without he core protocols that make the global Internet possible. Fully updated to cover emerging technologies that are critical to the present and future of the Internet. Takes a top-down approach that begins with the familiar application layer, then proceeds to the protocols underlying it, devoting attention to each layer's specifics.

The examples are crafted to be just complicated enough, and no more. TCP/IP Clearly Explained offers a pleasant reading experience to anyone who is interested in learning about this protocol suite.

TCP/IP only seems mysterious because its so hard to find someone who can really explain it clearly. Assuming this is the same book, it's one of the best computer books I've ever read (and I've read a lot of 'em). This book does the job. It only took the first 2 chapters for me to begin learning.

I use this book as a springboard to learning about TCP/IP and related standards-because each chapter lists references to relevant RFCs, I can dig deeper when necessary.

Peter Loshin addresses all of the important areas of TCP/IP networking and provides the reader with a picture of the future direction of the technology. I recommend the book for both students and professionals who want to get an in-depth understanding of the TCP/IP protocol suite.

TCP/IP continues to be the most important networking protocol suite in the world--and the most successful. As the Internet continues to expand, the number of hosts using TCP/IP for networking is rapidly approaching the 100 million mark. With so many users, the need for computer and networking professionals to understand TCP/IP parallels the technology's growth. This new third edition follows the progression of TCP/IP, updating its continued relevancy, and reflecting the new developments in this core technology's evolution. TCP/IP Clearly Explained, Third Edition provides a clear and complete introduction to the most widely used TCP/IP Protocols, in plain language that makes complicated networking concepts accessible to readers without a background in computer science. It is a comprehensive guide to all-important topics related to TCP/IP and is for anyone interested in learning how the Internet works from a nuts and bolts perspective. * Includes all important topics related to TCP/IP and explains them in the context of actual applications that use the protocols described* Contains clear illustrations of protocol headers and network traffic flow * Presents increased coverage of the WWW and Web-related applications, protocols, and specifications such as HTTP, HTML, Java, and Active X

There are lots of books available about TCP/IP. Some are filled with great technical information, but are difficult to follow, because of the realm of information. Others are easier to read, but lack some important details. This book strikes a happy medium: full of excellent information, but still written in a style that's easy to follow and understand.
Among the topics covered besides obviously "TCP/IP" are network addresses and names (and assigning them), internetwork architecture, routing protocols, broadcasting and multicasting, and TCP/IP applications. There are also chapters about IPv6 (the so-called "next generation of IP") and brief chapters on intranets and extranets.
The book also contains a wealth of other resources. At the end of each chapter is a list of relevant RFC (Request For Comments), so the reader can learn more. The Appendixes also contain other references, a biliography and even a glossary of terms.
Another reviewer said if he could only have one book about TCP/IP, this would be it. I wholeheartedly agree.
Do understand the difference between a MAC address and an IP address? And why you need both? Do you understand what all those dots within an IP address are for? If you don't, then you need this book.
For a long time I have understood and mis-understood various bits and peices of what TCP/IP was and how LAN's and the internet work. Now I can put that all together.
TCP/IP only **seems** mysterious because its so hard to find someone who can really explain it clearly. This book does the job.
It only took the first 2 chapters for me to begin learning. With each answer came more questions, and the answers to those new questions were on the next page!
In fact, my curiosity to learn and learn more about TCP/IP eventually led me to CISCO Certification Academy a few months ago. There we used textbooks and manuals twice as large to explain the same subject. I feel as though I have a definite edge in the Academy because I read this book first and I understand TCP/IP. (And I had no prior networking experience.)
I would fault this book only for not having more (color) diagrams, but the illustrations that are there are accurate, and illustrate the subject matter well.
Also, I think that most people will find the first half of this book more useful than the second. On the advanced topic of subnetting, I have seen even better explanations on free internet sites... but to understand those advanced topics, you have to ...clearly understand the fundamentals... and this is exactly what this book does best.
I have the earlier, 1st edition version of "TCP/IP For Everyone". Assuming this is the same book, it's one of the best computer books I've ever read (and I've read a lot of 'em). A great introduction to networking for anyone who's interested- you don't need to be a techie to understand this one. I am ordering several copies for my office and will probably give a lecture based on it for my department. The title of this book is very appropriate. I highly recommend it, and am looking forward to see what's been added in this new edition.
I recently purchased this book to assist me in a work related assignment. It is really unfortunate that I spent so much money on this book because it proved to be completely worthless. I have been a practicing software engineer for well over twenty years and have often needed to reference technical literature to aid me in designing or implementing a technology I've not previously had experience with. Most books I have used for this purpose tend to have a broad overview of the subject matter followed by several chapters that delve into the details. If you glance at the table-of-contents of this awful book, you're misled into believing that that is the book's structure. Unfortunatly, as you read Loshin's prose, it quickly becomes obvious that he hasn't a clue on how to take a somewhat complicated concept and heirarchically break it into smaller, easier to digest segments. Instead, its as if the entire 400 pages never gets to the point - everything that's said is generalized, excepted or otherwise incorrect and never gives the reader the tools and information needed to look at real TCP/IP message traffic and derive what its all about; much less develop software that can properly interact with other machines on the internet. I have since found a book (TCP/IP Illustrated, Vol I by Stevens) that was exactly what I needed. The only thing beneficial about buying Loshin's book is that it taught me to be much more discriminating when buying technical literature in the future.
I was expecting to find out what TCP/IP was, how it differed from other networking standards, and an explanation of when and how to use the various components. I was disappointed. It took a lot of reading of OTHER material on TCP, and an explanation from a Stanford professor, before I could understand this book.
The book could do with editing to check the topic sequence. Often a term is introduced without explanation as if you know what the author means. The explanation MAY come several pages later.
This book is, IMHO, a well-organized and straightforward introduction to TCP/IP issues. It's not as detailed as Stevens' _Illustrated TCP/IP_, which is an excellent source if you're doing network implementations--but that's not what *this* book is supposed to be. This book is very obviously intended for people who just need to understand the basics and who need to understand how all the different parts of TCP/IP fit together.
I'd definitely recommend this one for people who don't know much about networking and need to know more.
I found the book to be a great refrence tool to find terms and explenations. I don't recommened it for the beginner, but its good for us "old school" nerds. :)
