very disappointing
This is one of the worst TCP/IP books I have ever encountered. Originally I had hoped it would be similar to the Stevens books on BSD, but there is very little narrative and no code annotation. If you simply downloaded the current kernel and printed out the source code, you would essentially have a more up-to-date version of this book.

This is an imprint of the kernel - get it free at kernel.org
this book is just an imprint of the kernel
with under 0.1% of documentation. do not buy it.

in linux-netzwerkarchitektur from wehrle, paehlke, et.al.
and device drivers from rubini, corbet you will find better
better and more detailed descriptions of what is happening
in the TCP-IP-implementation in the linux kernel.

Dont buy this book - view the KERNEL Source code
90% of the book is kernel Source Code without almost no explanation. Why buy this book if you can view the source code for free
