http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi, I'm really thinking about purchasing this book - Internetworking with TCP/IP, Vol. III: Client-Server Programming and Applications, Linux/POSIX sockets version by Douglas Comer - but I have a few concerns... 1. Its the third is a series and I haven't read the first two, will this make the book hard - impossible to understand? 2. I already read - Unix Network Programming, The Socket Networking API Vol 1 3rd Edition by WR Stevens and company. Now I found most of this book very understandable but at the same time found the latter chapters more of and after thought(especially the information after chapter 11). Would you consider it a waste of money to purchase this book considering the amount of material that would be repeated? I'm really looking forward to expanding my small programming library but I would also like to get the most bang for my buck. If you have any info on the above book could you please pass it on...Thank-you Gerard4143 (HowTos)
