The Protocols by W. Richard StevensStevens is well known for his books on Unix programming. Chapters on tools like ping and traceroute are included, and a tcpdump program is used throughout on a real network to allow us to actually watch the protocols in action on the wire; we are always kept in touch with what is happening at the link layer. The focus is very much on how the protocols work in practice rather than on the theory behind them. So the discussion of RIP includes a detailed look at the protocol's behaviour on an example network, but only mentions the counting to infinity problem in passing, and ASN. If you are primarily interested in the theory behind the algorithms and protocols then this will be frustrating, but if you are interested in the protocols from an practical perspective then it will be a welcome simplification.

What sets this book apart from others on this subject is the fact that the author supplements all of the discussion with data collected via diagnostic programs; thus, it is possible to "watch" the protocols in action in a real situation. Also, the diagnostic tools involved are publicly available; the reader has the opportunity to play along at home. This offers the reader an unparalleled opportunity to really get a feel for the behavior of the protocols in day-to-day operation. Richard Stevens was an acknowledged UNIX and networking expert and the highly-respected author of several books. He was also a sought-after instructor and consultant.
