This is finally a book that transcends the different telcommunications and computer networking technologies to provide a comprehensive treatment of network design based on experience.I am a networking professional myself but haven't read a networking book in a while and was hoping not to find another Tanenbaum or Stallings type book clone. I am glad I read it and will probably use it as a reference here and there.The great value of the book is that it manages to outline a detailed approach to practical network design while not getting lost in the numerous technologies involved. As such it is an extremely worth-wile reading for both experienced network professionals, novices, and as a text for graduate-level Computer Science and Electrical Engineering communications network courses.

This is a good book. I found lots of interesting information in it but also found a greater amount of useless information in it. The problem here is that Marcus doesn't really understand who his audiance for this book will be. A lot of it is focused on big businesses or even ISP's developing wide area networks. However, I doubt either of these would look to this tiny 300 page book for answers. Marcus should realize that his primary audiance will probably be small business administrators who don't have access to WAN specialists like a corporation would. He spends most of the book talking about providing service to networks which will quickly become overload by a plethora of users and talking about buying cross country direct and leased links between offices while he hardly acknowledges vpn as a viable means of connecting offices in a WAN. For most of the book I found myself wondering why I should give a care about what he was discussing. However, like I said this is a good book. It gives really good pointers to how you should go about designing a WAN and what areas people often overlook. Its just that all this useful info is surrounded by junk and I found myself, as a small business admin, really only enjoying/needing 5 of the 19 chapters.
