``In a world of complexity, the ability to convey knowledge as opposed to

Volume 1 continues to play a key role in teaching us about the role
of protocols in the ever-changing Internet.''
- Dr. Balachander Krishnamurthy, AT&T Labs
``Doug Comer remains the first and best voice of Internet technology.
Despite the legion of `Internet carpetbaggers' (the current crop of `authors'

the Internet and its infrastructure, Dr. Comer shines through as the premiere
source for lucid explanations and accurate information.
He sets a standard for which many strive, but precious few attain.''

``Comer's Volume 1 drastically changed the course of networking history.''
Rapid evolution of the Internet is happening as the entire world uses

case with my grandchildren).
Comer accurately tracks the relevant
technological underpinnings for those building the Internet today.''
