Reviews - What do customers think about Rick Gallaher's MPLS Training Guide: Building Multi Protocol Label Switching Networks?

Absolute waste of money!  Aug 11, 2008
This book is 301 pages long and published in 2003 (not 400p 2007)

As for the 1 year upgrade, I registered the book and there is NO update or corrections registered. What a surprise. The author probably doesn't have the necessary time to do all the corrections and updates. If I could get my money back, I would. I can't understand the positive reviews unless they're the author's friends or family. You can 'search inside' on this site to see for yourself how rubish this book is.

If you want to know the basics of MPLS or more details, this is not the book for you. It is full of mistakes, both grammatical and technical and some are plain absurd - it tells you to open a file called MPLS_Basic in Ethereal. There is no file there. Neither is there a CD or URL. There is no file anywhere on Google other than links to this book. The author even has a site where you'd hope to find some updates or test files for Ethereal but when you click on the book there you get redirected to a book purchse, no thanks!

The pictures are so poor and the photos are blurred and a waste of time. The screenshots are unclear also. The book is like a poor first draft and Syngress should never have published such shoddy work.

The book is plain useless. I've nearly finished it in 1 day as there's so little of use in it. Also, the examples are based on Riverstone. Nearly every provider uses Cisco or Junipers so why Riverstone? Maybe the author is getting some money to promote Riverstone?

The worst networking book I've read, better as a doorstop (a small one at that).
Great info.... Needs editing  Jun 30, 2008
Great information in this book and well presented. There are some serious mistakes in here that could cause less informed readers to stumble however. Needs a good editing.
Brilliant Book! Makes MPLS seem easy! LOTS of great pictures  Jan 4, 2005
This is a brilliant book, because Rick Gallaher makes MPLS very clear and easy to understand! The book is LOADED with LOTS of excellent diagrams, and Rick puts the whole thing together with great, simple, and clear explanations! Rick is also one of the few writers who clearly understand that over-engineering bandwidth does not solve the QoS problems! MOST EXCELLENT!!!
Not your average geek book  Nov 27, 2004
Alright, I'm not going to try and impress you with all my fancy-pants knowledge about MPLS, they are many more people smarter than I am about the subject. But, I read this book, and I liked it. It's hard material made easy. I would have liked some full color pictures and a glossy more textbook style format. But that's it. It takes the material seriously, and it could have used some more humor to add a bit of levity, but as I see it, this book isn't just a geek manual, it's a geek bible.
Complex but not complicated.   Nov 27, 2004
MPLS stands for Multiprotocol Label Switching. It is a complicated system of nodes, networks, allocations, routes, and databases. Rick Gallaher's Guide reads like a Spanish 101 textbook. Yes, it's great to know the difference between a physical, a data link, and network layers, but at the same time, it's a whole lot of material to take in at once. This isn't a book you can cram into your head in one sitting. It requires (as with Spanish 101) a semester to get it right. There are terms you have to practice. Acronyms you have to learn and whole slew of words that aren't exactly the easiest things to remember. That is a fault of the subject matter jargon and not the fault of the manual. Gallaher's Guide is a solid learning tool, and I think would work perfectly with a mentor or as part of an intructional class. By itself, it's more like reading a spanish textbook, without ever hearing the language spoken.
