“In this book, Antonio Liotta and George Exarchakos have successfully tackled the challenge of explaining in easy to understand terms how the Internet works today and how it could be upgraded. The first two chapters of the book deal with how the Internet works today. The next seven chapters deal with how it could be upgraded … . I strongly recommend the book to non networking specialists who are not ‘dummies,’ but have a keen interest in the Internet and its evolution.” (Roch Glitho, IEEE Communications Magazine, February, 2012)
“This book presents the old and well-known concepts so that readers can understand them. This is helpful, since no computer network expert knows all of the concepts. … The book is quite instructive and timely, and presents all concepts, both new and existing. … an interesting read for students, or for those who are interested in computer networks but don’t have the technical knowledge. Professionals and researchers in the computer networking field will also find the book interesting, as it offers new ideas and discussions.” (Kalinka Castelo Branco, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2011)
