The title "VPNs: A beginner's Guide" may be misleading to some. The book was written by an engineer, for engineers. It tends to be rather dry and moves very quickly. But this is not the main problem I have with this book. The real problem is the editing. It has a noticeable amount of punctuation errors, incorrect graphics, errors in the examples, a habit of not expanding an acronym until the 4th or 5th time it has appeared, and not explaining concepts when they are first referenced. I also found a lot of repetition where it was not necessary, and not enough where it would have been nice. This is a complex issue and I don't think the editor chosen for this project was up to the task. All of this is not to say that the information in the book is lacking or incorrect. There is quite a bit of useful knowledge in it. It¿s just that the book should have been run thru the editing process 1 more time before they rushed it out the door to meet a publishing deadline. It also means that someone unsure of the subject matter will need to 2nd source the info in the book, and go over a few lines and graphs with a pen¿
