Although the book is more for beginners by the end of it you will feel like an expert!
Understanding network packets will help you to secure your system and see what is really flowing between your PC and the internet. You will become familiar with TCP/IP, ARP, DNS, DHCP, ICMP, SSL and many more acronyms.
The book is very well laid out with a good mixture of text and graphs/pics in fact it is so good that the book is bound with Otabind binding allowing it to easily lie flat when opened.
It comes with a downloadable zip file of capture examples for you to work through alongside with the book. I would highly recommend the actual book rather than a kindle version as the book is so well designed (you can of course re-sell the book but not your kindle version!).
This book is so good that you wish it was even more in-depth or that this author/publisher did a more in-depth book. Although there is a chapter on Wireless analysis it does not go into too much depth (and no the book does not tell you how to hack - but makes you aware of the hacking problems and how to check/see them) - so could have done with a longer chapter on WiFi.
Highly recommended as one of the best beginners guide to a subject that I have read.
