Highly recommended I work in IT and have always struggled to understand the technical side. This book really helps you understand the basics. I am a person that needs to read something a few times before it sinks in, so will be reading it again. Highly recommended

Perfect for simple geeks As an Analyst I love to know how things work and this perfectly shows what it says on the cover. Written in plain English with clear instructive diagrams/ images, so that anyone can understand. A great format not to be changed.
