If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools... Kipling. If you happen to like worn-out tools, this book may be for you. A lot has happened since 1996 in the world of IP telephony. The book is a useful historical reference. Technically very light, Wired-style gonzo journalism, with little relevance to IP telephony in 2001.
