Pros: Good coverage about DNS
Cons: Vocabulary can get confusing, especially if your not familure with terms



This book is decent when compared to the 'O Reilly book DNS and Bind. I prefer this book over the other one because this book is a bit simplier to understand. The examples were a lot easier to follow, allowing me to create an example on my end without a lot of trouble.

The O Reilly book makes you read the outside fluff. I prefer to learn by example and then pick up the details later. QUE allows you to skip to the examples because it does repeat it self.

NOTE: If you're using a chroot installation, be sure to read that section before starting your own server. it will save you a lot of head ache down the road!
