I co-authored Computer Networking Problems and Solutions: An innovative approach to building resilient, modern networks with Russ White. Think of the book as “advanced fundamentals.”
What we want both new students of networking and established practitioners to get out of this book is a way of thinking. We explain common problems in networking, and then discuss how a variety of networking technologies solve those problems.
When considering technologies in the problem/solution paradigm, you begin to see patterns. Once you recognize the pattern, new technological solutions are less intimidating. Why? You’ve seen it all before, just wearing a different outfit.
I thank Russ, a highly accomplished technical author, for the opportunity to contribute several chapters to this hefty networking tome.
