At the time of publication, it was the best book on the subject of networking real-time, multiple user, persistent environments. Although it is still on the market today, the problem is, it is almost hopelessly dated, still insisting on a hierarchical architecture, which was perfect at the time, but just cannot cope with large worlds today.

Still, this is a good book still, for its evaluation of networking technologies and re-examination of networking basics, highlights and issues from a real-time large data throughput perspective. Even today, few if any dedicated networking books or courses look at things from this particular, highly useful angle.
