The undisputed guide for BGP!

Don't be taken by the size of the book - it's packed with information on BGP-run infrastructures. From basic BGP applications, to case-scenario aggregations and confederations (even a complete list of CLI commands), simply the best text on the subject!

The best C book ever written.

C is a powerful and elegant language, and no other book I have ever read has been able to convey this so simply as this book. Any serious programmer will greatly benefit from the knowledge contained within, for it will give them a deep understanding of the language.

Excellent reference and preparation for the CCIE lab

This is the new definitive BGP book by Cisco. It is more in depth than Internet Routing Architectures and covers very specific and practical examples on how to properly configure BGP.
The nice thing about this book is that it does cover theory, but does not get bogged down in it. You could easily take this book with you to work and set up community strings, peer-groups and load balance BGP with this at your desk. It's Very specific, has very pratical examples and is a must if you work with BGP and are striving for CCNP/CCIE...4 stars. A must have in any Network Engineer's library.

Another brilliant book from the O'Reilly crew.

This is a must have book for anyone using Unix. It is a wonderful reference book.
The book takes you through the basic commands for Unix. The commands are listed alphabetically and for each command you get a desciption, the common switches and an example of how to use it.
From there it gives you an overview of a shell and provides specifics about teh Bourne and Korn shells.
Sections on VI, AWK, SED, and emacs round out this incredible book.
All in all I found this to be one of the most useful reference manuals I have. It's a must have book for any UNIX user.
