    "As esoteric and technical as one could imagine. It's a useful resource for learning about computer networking that could very well be a necessity in one's education about the subject."

    "Whether you're showing up on the job fresh from a Cisco certification with no job experience or you've been in the field for awhile this book has something to offer that you're not going to find elsewhere. In a nutshell, it is the networking book to help you get your job done. The book focuses on teaching what you need to know on the job and not just information to to pass a certification exam. It helps turn on light bulbs that you may not get when reading cisco Press books. It explains thing with simple examples and uses fun analogies. I have to say this is the first networking book that I have read that I just didn't want to put down. (think spy thriller or mystery novel) If you are in the networking field, buy this book and read it cover to cover like I did. (or virtual cover to cover via Kindle in my case) Absolutely wonderful book!"

    "I am interested in computer networks, so i was very much looking forward to reading this book. Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed. The language was very technical and hard for someone without specialized knowledge to understand."

    "This might be a good book for software developers interested in learning about data structures, but it has nothing to do with setting up or maintaining a computer network. This was a complete waste of time. I'm very disappointed."

    The Algorithm Design Manual
    Expanding on the highly successful formula of the first edition, the book now serves as the primary textbook of choice for any algorithm design course while maintaining its status as the premier practical reference guide to algorithms.

    "This is the book you would buy after you bought several other books to learn about all the words in this book. That is the easiest way to say it. The other option you have is to make sure you keep a dictionary with you and this copy at all times. There are some doozies in this. It may have something to do with me not being a fan of algorithm personally but even so I should have been able to easily get thru this book without much trouble. If nothing else its a great coaster."

    "Cloud Computing is simply a reference book that outlines and details the concepts and applications of cloud computing. It's a highly marketable skill as the field is rapidly expanding. Also, it has ground in many other aspects of the workforce so it is very worth learning to be competitive in today's market. I don't usually read things like this as I am a visual learner, but it was very descriptive and detailed. Even I could understand it! I highly recommend you check it out."
