Like all of Tanenbaum's books, this one contains excruciating details on all aspects of the title subject. More useful for hardcore introductory courses or as a reference when writing papers. I usually wear-out a couple of highlighters on each of his books and fill the margins with notes, trying to keep track of all the data he's dumping on me. This book contains a great deal of discussion on the microcode level, which you're unlikely to find in many other bound volumes. Tanenbaum does the research for you, saving you countless hours wading through RFCs and OEM publications.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
