Quotes and reviews

"The charm of Networking Explained is the way it is structured as a sequence of questions and answers...Overall, it is a good example of a book that can be used as quick reference, as well as a compass for finding the way to the right 'deeper' topic." - IEEE Signal Processing Magazine
