Summary: Delivers!
Comment: This book delivers on its title. I found some of the code useful immediately straight out of the book. I also have his Linux Programming book. It too is very good. I would have given it five stars; but for lack in two areas: firstly, I would have liked coverage of dynamic restart of client / server apps and logging; secondly, as there isn't a CD provided, a download site is given which reroutes you somewhere else and I couldn't find any code to download. This also occured for my other SAMS book by the same author.

Summary: A fair beginner's book to socket programming
Comment: This is very readable and usable as a beginner's guide to socket programming. One particular aspect I liked is that the author took the pain to illustrate the socket structure well which many book glossed over. Also, the sample codes are short and illustrate the use of the socket calls well. The book could have been expanded to cover HTTP,SOAP,XML, etc to give it a 5 star. Also think that the publisher could have used better quality print material.

Summary: Good Explanations, Sad examples
Comment: The code examples and editing mistakes almost force you to have a secondary book just to validate what the author is doing. 3 stars were given for the completenes and solid explanation of concepts. I should've just picked up the out of print version of Richard Stevens "UNIX Network Programming", classic.
