Summary: Not Bad..
Comment: I grooved on most of the chapters.
They explained the routing protocols really good, but when it came time for actual configuration, the book kind of lacked. I think it would have been nice if we saw a real life example, especially for the config file syntax.

There were some chapters that I just didnt see a point to. The chapter 'Building a Routing Kernel' was one of them. It spent more time on showing LILO syntax and other basic informatin rather than what you actually need for a routing kernel. (ie, what protocols to compile, why choose them, should i add firewall support, etc)

I also found the book rather out of order. It starts you off explaining RIP, RIP-2, then goes into OSPF, BGP, and on and on. For the first section of the book, this really makes your head spin. _And then_ after all of that, they explain to you IPv4 addressing...

All in all, the majority of the information was good. It introduced me to such things as CIDR, multicast routing, OSPF, and BGP. I would recommend it to people who have a comfortable/solid understanding of basic linux and a comfortable understanding of TCP/IP. This is definately not a beginners book, nor is it an experts book. If you're right in the middle, you might learn a thing or two from this.

Summary: Excellent Book
Comment: A good primer for users wanting to know about Linux Routing. A cool book, in that I have not seen one on tihs topic before. The writing is clear and concise. It could have used a little more detail on some subjects, but overall a good read.
