"Fantastic book!!" - by mareeba on 23-MAR-2011

Takes what would seem to be a deadly dull subject and makes it interesting to read about. Breaks down complex topics into easily understood pieces. Really good information for anyone preparing for a certification exam related to networking, security, etc. I wish all technical books were such a pleasure to read.
