I was essentially forced to buy this book as the required textbook for a graduate level class. This is my first exposure to Stallings and I do not think he could write a grocery list that anyone could understand. He manages to twist simple concepts so bad they are barely recognizable. If I had not previously studied books by Lammle, McQuerry, and Glough for my CCNA I would be totally lost. For example, his discussion of OSI layer 2 devices has nearly every person in my class confused because he insists on refering to bridges (bridges? Who uses bridges any more?) performing routing functions. Routing at OSI layer 2? Yikes! Every other book I have read refers to routers routing packets at OSI layer 3 and layer 2 switches/bridges forward/filtering frames at layer 2. Another example is his discussion of Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) which he calls Spanning Tree Routing Protocol. Once again, confusing. His detailed explanation of STP in the book is absolutely baffling.

If you are seriously intersted in learning about this subject I recommend the CCNA Certification Library by Odom, and/or Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices by McQuerry, and/or CCNA Study Guide by Lammle. All of these books are much more current and much easier to understand. Compare the reviews. They are also much cheaper.

If you are writing your own book and are looking for examples of how not to do it then buy Stallings' book.

My professor had us read the whole book and work several projects and problems from it.
It spends a lot of time on the kerberos security and the multi-layered hand-shaking that occurs in Internet security today.
It's an excellent book both in depth and breadth. It covered many topics and protocols that I learned as on-the-job training as I grew up in the industry. It did not skip anything necessary to the understanding of 1970s through current networking protocols and architectures.

This book was used as the text for a LAN course I took as part of a Masters degree in Telecommunications and Networking. At first, I was excited, because we had used Stallings text on Cryptography and Network Security and I had learned a good bit from it. He also appears to have a de facto standard text on data communications, which MANY of my peers own (I do not). After working intimately in the networking business for 3-4 years, it was interesting to read Stallings take on things, but there are serious problems with this book:
1.) Stallings tends to 'list and explain', i.e. provides a list of concepts and then goes into detail on each piece. This is a fine organizational structure, but tends to give weight to things that aren't necessarily that important - and there are many things in networking that I find gain mention, but aren't used in reality such as infrared wireless networks and LLC. Why does he bother with them?
2.) The cover mentions 'switched ethernet'. It makes NO appearance in the text whatsoever. There is about 1/2 a page on something called 'dedicated token ring' that to the initiated is obviously switched token ring.
3.) The typos - they are truly annoying. 80% are minor - typos, really. Others are serious and not something a beginner is going to catch!
Stallings seems to be a 'professional author' considering the number of books he's written. I suspect he pores over references and standards documents and then distills the information into a book like this one. Some of the chapters seem to be pulled from his other books (SNMP and Network Security). You could do the same, but his book would save you time. I would recommend waiting for a later edition and hope that the typos have been caught and corrected. The book would then serve as as good intro to a beginner (although probably only in a classroom environment) or a intermediate. You can then go and start looking at things more in depth by looking at the standards yourself.
More specifically:
chapter 1-2: basic intro and telecomm topics. No comments Chapter 3-Protocols & the TCP/IP suite. Reasonable treatment, but the appendix on IP, TCP, and UDP is a little too short. IPv6 is only a paragraph? Chapter 4-Topologies and transmission media - Dull, if necessary. Probably too technical to most people (but not THAT technical) compared to other books on network cabling. Again, Stallings is heavier on theory than the practicality. Chapter 5-Protocol Architecture - this is supposed to be an 'intro' to more detailed stuff that comes later, but outlines the issues. Not an organizational technique that everyone cares for. Chapter 6-Logical Link Control - Does anybody REALLY use this?? This deserved its own chapter? Chapter 7-Ethernet LAN's - a good technical treatment of shared ethernet, but where's the switched? Covers (1+ pages) Autonegotiation which I appreciated (hadn't seen it before). Gigabit etherenet gets about 3-1/2 pages (half of which is pictures). Chapter 8-Token Ring Lans & Mans-Good technical information on Token Ring and FDDI (my first exposure to these details. Chapter 9-Fibre Channel - Despite Stallings penchant for deatils there seems to be a lot of details missing here, but I didn't see anything better on the web. FC may still be too new? Chapter 10-Wireless LANS. The covereage of Infrared is a waste of space. Important details about how the frame in 802.11 is used are missing and there is zero mention of 802.11a, which is probably too recent for inclusion. Chapter 11-ATM LANs. I didn't read, but looked like a fine intro. The chapter 11 appendix covers ATM itself and AAL's, but there is no AAL2. That's fine since this is a LAN book, but it says AAL2 hasn't been defined (circa 2000). I don't believe that is true. Chapter 12&13 - Bridges & Internetworking. I didn't read. Again, a short, theory-heavy, intro to the subjects by the look of it. Chapter 14-Network management - Didn't read. Chapter 15-LAN performance. I was most appreciative of this chapter which is hard-to-find information. It wasn't necessarily consistent, pulling info from many places, but I don't think you can find a better intro to the theory of network performance behavior. And, it stresses 'back of the envelope' calculations for performance, which, ironicaly enough is a very practical approach. Too bad about those serious typos on pages 430, 435, 438, and 453 (some in the figures, some in the equations).
