    An Excellent Overview of IPv6 - Concepts to Implementation

    Pete Loshin, the author, excels at making advanced networking concepts clear and easy-to-understand for the IT or networking generalist. This should be the first book on IPv6 you read, and, unless you are an IPv6 development engineer, it may well be the only book on IPv6 you need to read. Unlike technical books that bury the reader in details from the outset, this book provides context first, starting with a brief overview of IPv6 and how it improves on IPv4 - the current widely-deployed global network protocol. This holistic approach to explaining IPv6 provides much more than reference material or detailed configuration-level information (although that level of detailed information is in the book too). Pete's latest book will help you really *understand* IPv6, from 'what triggered the development of the new protocol', to 'IPv6 basics', to 'how to configure IPv6 network devices and host computers'. Each major topic is covered - addressing, security, multicasting, QoS, neighbor discovery, autoconfiguration, mobility, transition, services, deployment planning, and futures (full disclosure: I contributed to this book). Considering the enormous success of the Internet and the pervasive native of IP-networking, and considering that IPv6 will be here soon and likely be *the* network protocol for the next 20 years, every IT professional should know something about it. This book is the way to get that knowledge.
