Things had changed, and I needed to forget about things like Frame Relay, and accept BGP as the lord of corporate circuits to branch offices, and needed to get up to speed rather quickly.
Probably an easier read if you're someone who understands technology, and definitely wouldn't recommend it if you're not familiar with tech speak, but certainly more conversational than the typical tech books.
Well worth my time to read too in pursuit of my Cisco certifications, but it won't allow me to pass the test as my lone source of knowledge. Not that I expected it to.
I've read a lot of networking books, primarily Cisco related, and the author throws in some interesting insights that you may not find anywhere else. However, if you have no idea what a subnet is, this book won't help you much, and understanding subnetting is foundational to hooking up your router/switch to anything. The appendix on subnetting will only further flumux the uninitiated. I have seen half of a Cisco networking class disappear after the first mid-term, due to subnetting questions, and that was after weeks of preparing to answer them.
His target audience is for someone who is desparate, and needs some answers now, not after they read five books and/or get their CCNA or Network+ certificate, and he sticks to his mission.
I had plenty of official online documentation for the MTU changes, but I really wasn't comfortable with the very basics of Cisco IOS's command line interface. I bought this book to help ensure I wouldn't shoot myself in the foot. Authenticating, navigating unprivileged vs. privileged EXEC, and making config changes are all covered in Cisco Routers for the Desperate. (And then some.) That's what I needed.
Served its purpose for a Linux sysadmin who inherited a couple switches.
