"A thorough, in-depth description of how Java can be applied to networking. For anyone with a serious interest in how the Internet works there is much of interest, and which is written in language that does not assume a degree in computer science. It deserves a wider audience than professional programmers."--Major Kearny, PC Update, March 2001
