Anyone that knows me knows that I am pretty straightforward with my comments and am especially self-deprecating. I have two things to say about this book that I co-authored:
-I really like that we now have technical books that are available electronically. I hated carrying around a massive book on planes. Now I don’t have to but the auto-justify KILLS the configurations. As a guy who learns new stuff by reading configuration flow, this is irritating as hell as it is tough to follow configs that are all jacked up based on formatting. Jerking around with font size helps, but it is no picnic to read.
-As with any technology book, you are late to the game on some topics the moment you lock changes and the book goes to print. We did not have time to really do a good job of Internet Edge/DMZ design and also any real depth on topics such as multi-homing. While these designs are pretty much the same as what you already do with IPv4, we still wanted to cover them but didn’t, which disappoints me.
I hope you enjoy the book. I have to get busy documenting minor errors in it so we can update the next printing batch.
