My standard for TCP/ip books is "TCP/IP Illustrated" by W. Richard Stevens. Can anyone recommend a book on IPv6 they think is that good?

You better read the one * star comment before placing the order :-) –  ring0 Dec 5 '10 at 6:17
    
@Ring0, I think that review is fair for someone looking for a Technical Guide to IPv6 and How-To configure it on X platform. This book definitely concentrates on why IPv6 was invented, the transition from IPv4, and specification over implementation. If you just want to get IPv6 going in your network, this is not the book for you. If you want to know more, I would recommend this one. It's the difference between architects and construction workers; this one is for the former. –  Chris S Dec 5 '10 at 15:31
    
Ok, you own it seemingly. –  ring0 Dec 6 '10 at 0:30
