DNS/bind book - wich is best?


hello all,

i have decided to buy a book on dns, more specifically one about the bind dns server

however, i am unsure wich one would be best. as i am doing more and more on the internet and more and more with DNS setups etc i have found my self thrown in at the deep end so to speak

i am currently looking at bind dns books on amazon.co.uk, wich ones would you people recomend ( feel free to point me to other book sites )

any ideas?

Uh.. there is only *ONE* book...

DNS & BIND from O'reilly.

Anything else is a waste of paper :P

http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/dns4/

At the risk of being contraversial and injecting opinions, I don't buy from Amazon due to their atrocious privacy policy. Barnes and Noble on the other hand, won't sell your information.

Slick.

Why not support local business and by the book from a store in your town?

sadly there are no book stores in my area that cary the O'reilly book series that i know of

the only book store that i know of that carries O'reilly books is amazon and a new one that i have found today called pcbooks.co.uk

if anyone knows of any other book stores that are in the UK, specifically in manchester please let me know


so, according to what other people have said here the O'reilly and friends book series are probably the best for computer type information, is this right?

I dont mean to dishearten you about buying it in paper, if you love the 'soft' kind, there's http://safari.oreilly.com. You can be anywhere in the world to be a member if have a credit/debit card. They even have a 14day trial!! If you have any questions , let me know,.. I'm a member. (Hey I dont get any referral money from this.)
