Reviews - What do customers think about Configuring IPv6 for Cisco IOS?
This book is a total disappointment Mar 5, 2008
I ordered the book partly based on the ratings given by others, and I feel they are totally misleading: this book just compiled some basic concepts on ipv6, and of very little value on configuring Cisco IOS practically -- you'd better goggle any specific topic you interested instead.
Buy Configuring IPv6 for Cisco IOS Dec 13, 2003
Configuring IPv6 for Cisco IOS extends ipv4 to ipv6 interoperability. It explaind ipv4 in detail and compares ipv6 crossreferencing both. I think this is the best way to learn ipv4 converting to ipv6 and also if you are just learning ipv4 in detail. This is the book for you. I am an internet security engineer and the book to Purchase is Configuring IPv6 for Cisco IOS
Disappointing Jan 12, 2003
This may be a good book if you need a complete introduction to IPv6 (the first half of the book) and some Cisco specific configuration details (the second half).
I agree that it's easy to read and seems to be well organised, but it is certainly not well written.
There are numerous errors throughout the book ranging from the trivial to the totally misleading, and many IPv6 concepts are repeated as nauseum in the first half suggesting that they were written by different authors without consulting one another before the book was published. Worse, it seems to have been rushed out without any overall proof reading.
No specific target audience seems to have been kept in mind - if you need an explanation of how to convert decimal to hex (pages 122 - 124) then perhaps this book isn't your first priority.
If you want to know more about IPv6 in Cisco IOS I recommend you look elsewhere - especially to the authoritative guide from Cisco Press by Regis Desmeules.
I give this book three stars for the Cisco IOS specific material, but only two for the general IPv6 material.

Configuring IPv6 with Cisco IOS
I found this book to be excellent reading. It covers enough to help you understand IPv4 and carry that over to IPv6 very adaquately. I have to say I have a technical library of over 300 books and manuals, and this is a welcome addition. It is definitley the best book I've read on IPv6, and know that I will have it around for reference for some time. It is very well written adn organized.
I am a proffesional Internet Security Expert, and find this book Configuring IPv6 with Cisco IOS to be very helpful in understanding what to expect in the new version of IP.
I recommend the book to anyone who is serious about IT, and wants to be on top of the game.
