You need this book if you run Ethereal!

GREAT book! It's well written and very detailed. It's obvious that the authors have real experience running Ethereal on enterprise networks. I learned so much from chatper 8 which is about analyzing packet captures. There's some very cool stuff in that chatper from the Honeynet Project. Highly recommended.

An outstanding accomplishment

Martin Sitter's "Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7" is a outstanding accomplishment. While taking very little for granted and offering clear explanations and tutorials for sometimes difficult areas, the more experienced will find many tips and shortcuts that offer a wealth of useful information I doubt could be learned any other way. The DVD which comes with the book includes Lesson Files for each chapter and even a trial version of Logic Express 7 itself. This is the least expensive way I know of to try out the program and determine whether or not it suits your needs. A word of caution however, there is considerable confusion concerning differences between the two programs. While I am grateful to Apple for making such a truly remarkable and well-behaved program available at such a relatively modest price, perhaps Logic Express 7 should have been named Logic "Lite" for while it is amazing what can be accomplished with it, the Express version contains several hundred less options than the "Pro" version. Certainly if you want to do much with Scoring to Video or Surround Sound you will have to purchase Logic 7 Pro.

This is the place to start...

These two great minds have presented their work in a neat at thorough fashion.
Every chapter builds on the last with emphasis towards critical elements in computer hardware.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and the class I took at UCSB!
