Simply A "Must-Have" For Lab Prep
Beau's book is indeed the true Multicasting Bible. I was totally new to multicasting when I began my CCIE studies, and having achieved that certification yesterday, I can tell you that Beau's book really opened the door for me on a topic that just isn't covered well elsewhere.
The only recommendation I'd make to readers is that if the first 10 chapters aren't quite sinking in, go through the actual configuration chapters (they're at the back of the book), and then reread the theory chapters. It worked for me.

Simply the Best
Absolutely the best book ever written on Multicasting. No books ever cleared my concepts about multicasting. Multicasting was not an easy topic for me before I read this book. But now it'a piece of cake and the credit goes to Mr. Williamson.

Multicast is not a very easy technology. When I first encountered with Multicast, I bought the book from one of my favorite writers (Jeff Dolyle) Volume II, but was very much disappointed the way he explained Multicasting. I then searched for other books and finally found the book which really made this complicated topic as a piece of cake. The way Beau Williamson presented each complicated object of multicast made me realize that not only he must be one of the best designers for Multicasting Networks, but also the best writer in terms of how to teach newbie of this complicated Technology.
If one seriously wants to learn about Multicasting, this is the book to buy without even second thought. Just go and grab it.
Good job Mr. Williamson. I encourge you to write more books on other complicated technologies.
