Cisco Routers for the Desperate (2nd edition) - Short Review

Reviewing the second edition of Cisco Routers for the Desperate was quite hard for me as I have very little to add to the Cisco Routers for the Desperate 1st edition review I posted a few years ago. After reading through this update pretty much all those comments still stand. It's an excellent, useful, well written book and the author still has a -distinct- written tone.

I enjoyed the book; I must have considering I bought the second edition! The material has been updated where needed and it's still lacking a section on ACLs so I'll stick to my score of 8/10 for people purchasing this book for the first time and look forward to another refresh in a couple of years time. If you already own the first edition then your choice is a little harder - this book is still an excellent stepping on point for the cost but don't expect much beyond a refresh on the same content.

Disclaimer: Part of my previous review is quoted in the marketing blurb at the front of the book. I did however pay for this book myself.
