Might be a good book, but I couldn't tell

I've read the reviews and the praises for this book and I want to believe them, but I could just never get into it. It's thick at about 700 pages and I couldn't get the flow of the book. I know that some will dismiss my evaluation as ametuer and that's OK. I hope that it works for you. I found Shawn Wildermuth's "Pragmatic ADO.NET" much more palletable. I am keeping this book around for reference though. From the look of the other reviews I have a feeling that all of the information is there and, now that I've had a primer from another book, it will be more digestable.

Excellent Internet Routing (BGP) Reference

Halabi's book is the BGP equivalent of Doyle's "Routing TCP/IP, Vol. 1". Without reading this book, I never would have understood BGP and the implications of interdomain routing. I also recommend Radia Perlman's "Interconnections, 2nd Ed."

Solid presentation of the material

I have a business background an work in business development for a large Swiss ISP. We have a lot of development going on inhouse and furhtermore, need to integrate standard software.
The book help me tremendously builing an understanding of what needs to be done to get order into our (creative) chaos. As a nice side effect I developed the glossary to communicate with the developers.
