    This is the best book by far that covers introduction to computer networks. What I like most is how the author managed to explain quite complex topics with simple language and practical and easy to follow illustration. What's more is the author willing to go extra miles to provide analogy that is familiar with everyday life to explain the concepts. Definitely worth reading!
