#21 - Cisco IOS in a Nutshell

I've been mainly working with Alcatel-Lucent switching gear for work but don't want to let my Cisco knowledge fade away from memory so I did some brushing up. To a non-techie that made no sense but a proper explanation would take too long. Basically, Cisco is the dominant maker of network gear and the operating system it uses is very complex and a bit archaic and if you are not working with it daily it can be hard to jump back into easily. Certainly not like riding a bike. IOS in a Nutshell is a great tour-de-force of the operating system and commands and easily catches me back up. This book should be part of any network admin/tech's library and re-read often. Highly Recommended.
