"IPv6 Essentials, 2nd edition, by Silvia Hagen, released in May 2006, is a well-written, clear, up-to-date guide to understanding IPv6 in-depth. This is a real accomplishment, because computer networking protocols are completely abstract, and translating all of these abstractions into understandable language is a noteworthy feat...We're at the stage where IPv6 support is pretty much universal- you can count on both network hardware and software supporting it. So the network administrator only needs to focus on learning the ins and outs of implementation. I recommend IPv6 Essentials as an essential reference, and a great starting point for mastering IPv6."

"Silvia Hagen's IPv6 Essentials is just that: one of those books that anyone who has anything to do with the organisation or implementation of networks, cannot do without...Silvia Hagen has completed a complex writing task with the number of terms that need to be defined and explained; but using an expert approach she controls the data ably: a good example of how sophisticated ideas can be forced into submission and made available to the target audience."
-- Graham K. Rogers, eXtensions

"If you're after a solid technical reference on IPv6, this is certainly a good reference. The writing style makes for easy reading and the book is well laid-out, starting with some history and then working its way up the stack as you progress through."

"There is something in this book for everyone...As you build your IPv6 library, this book should get an early spot on the shelf."
