I had read about half the volume. I sat there a minute thinking I must have zoned out and actually read nothing. I went to the table of contents and as I looked over the chapter titles I could recall actual passages here and there and I knew what the chapters had been saying.

The next morning I re-read sections and finally realized what had happened. Reading this book is almost like reading a novel by Isaac Asimov. The book covers all the expected areas. It shows how IPv6 differs from IPv4 and details the framing and addressing in the specification. Other chapters include quality of service, routing protocols and the upper layer protocols. The last chapter details how you can get your own IPv6 box up and running and covers Solaris, Linux, Microsoft and Cisco.
