Best text I've found on the foundations of computer networking. com User, January 25, 2006. This is a classic textbook on computer networking from an academic viewpoint.

Tanenbaum has overhauled his second edition to take into account the massive shift to Internetworks and the IP protocol. As usual, he does an excellent job of elucidating the subtleties of the technology while maintaining his witty style.

The book's key strength is that it combines solid theoretical underpinnings and clear explanations with consideration of the non-technical aspects of networking. These include market acceptance (some wise words on why ISDN failed, for example), the politics of "standards" and day-to-day pragmatic "getting it done" issues.

Tanenbaum's broader consideration enables the book to avoid the trap of becoming an unworldly academic text. It gives "Computer Networks" its licence to function as an indispensable everyday working reference.

I work in the communications/networking industry and keep this book handy. I lend it to colleagues to photocopy the odd section, and they always end up buying their own copy. Enough said!

I gave this book a 9 for including some of the old and dying technologies that lack even instructional value, at the expense of newer technologies that are seeing wide deployment. Grist for the fourth edition, I guess :-)
This review compares the following four books:
Computer Networks by Peterson and Davie (P & D)
Computer Networks by Tanenbaum
Computer Networks by Comer / Internetworking with TCP/IP
Computer Networking by Kurose and Ross (K & R)

By far the best book in the list is "Computer Networking" by Kurose and Ross. This book covers all of the essential material that is in the other books but manages to do so in a relevant and entertaining way. This book is very up to date as seen by the release of the 5th Ed when the 4th Ed is barely two years old. There are lots of practical exercises using wireshark and the companion website is actually useful and relevant. The attitude of this book with regard to teaching networking concepts could be summed up as "try it out and see for yourself". One interesting thing to note is that the socket programming example are all in Java.

Next up is the Peterson and Davie book which covers everything that Kurose and Ross discuss but is slightly more mathematical in how it goes about things. There are a lot more numerical examples and defining of formulas in this book which is fine by me and in no way detracts from the book. Also the socket programming examples are in C which is a little more traditional. The points where this text loses ground to K & R is that it doesn't have the practical application exercises that K & R has and it also doesn't extend the basic networking theory that is covered to modern protocols like K & R.

The two Comer books come next. Comer's "Computer Networks" book is probably the most introductory book out of this whole list and is more of a survey of networking topics that doesn't cover anything in any real depth. Still, this is an excellent book in that it is a quick clear read that is very lucid in its explanations and you can't help feeling that you understand everything that is covered in the book. Comer's TCP/IP book is the equivalent of the other authors' computer network books and in that respect it is pretty average. It covers all of the relevant material and in a manner which is more than readable but that is all. There is nothing exceptional about the book which stands out from the rest.

Last comes Tanenbaum's book from the author who is probably most famous for his OS books. This is probably the most technical and detailed of the books with lots of sample C code belying is experience with operating systems and their network stack code. The weak point of this book is that all of the code and technical minutia might prevent the reader from seeing the forest for the trees. Unless you are trying to learn how to program your own network stack for a Unix/Linux system, then I would get either the K & R book or the P & D book to learn networking for the first time. This book would best be served as a reference in which case the technical nature of the book becomes a benefit rather than detracting from the text.

I like the original edition more. This copy was a special international edition and I thought it was lacking some background.
Back in the days, being a computer science student, I had to read the 3rd version of this book, and I found it very helpful. Since then the book went through some significant changes (as did the computer networking industry in whole. This book makes a great job keeping current and make a robust (and sometime complicated) subject digestible.

I do think the book is a little over-priced. Also, although it was said to come in "new" conditions, there are small bumps and wrinkles on the cover.
Got this book to quickly learn some computer network fundamentals for my job at a startup. I come from a signal processing/communication background but didn't have that much experience with network stuff -- after reading some reviews online this seemed to be the best book to learn from. I've gone through a bunch of the initial chapter already and this book is great. It's fascinating to learn about the Internet, TCP/IP, and the history of all these things. This will be invaluable for my work. One complaint is that the 4th edition was published in 2002 so it's already a bit dated. But there's a new 5th edition out this year -- that will probably update alot of the material hopefully. Also, the coverage of wireless is a bit spotty. It covers 802.11, but I wanted to see some coverage of cellular broadband as well -- i.e. 3G, LTE, WiMax. Clearly the latter were not around in 2002 -- but maybe they'll be covered in the new edition? In short, a phenomenal book to learn the fundamentals of networking theory. Great for self learning esp if you have a technical background.
Not good for those who want a text to be well-organized and easy to follow.
It's not a network reference book, a protocol illustration book or a router/switch design book. If you're seeking answers for a specific problem in your protocol stack implementation or trying to get some help for your simulation project, you're looking at the wrong place.
If you're wondering why the Internet today is the way it is, why so many standards out there and how they are related (pros and cons), what inspired technology designers in the first place or what's the general approach of designing a communication protocol, this is the book for you.
It's unlike others that simply reorganize information from different sources, this book is the redevelopment after author's digestion.
