From the reviews of the third edition:"The author treats both the network and Java with clarity, sensitivity to readers' needs, and completeness. ... This book is an ideal introduction to network programming for readers who are familiar with Java and want to extend their knowledge and capacity, programmers who want a fundamental understanding of how Java can be deployed in network contexts, and students who want to extend their knowledge of Java into the realm of network programming." (Marlin Thomas, Computing Reviews, November, 2013)
