I just read first 6 chapters. General speaking it is good and clear while got some core information confusing and incorrect is fatal.
Chapter 6 is talking about TCP/IP in brief. The whole chapter
stated the bottom layer is "network access layer" while after checking with wikipedia (as well as the reference link to RFC1122), it should be "link layer".
At the very beginning (Page 161), the author highlighted that "IP" confusing people. I really got confused by what the author said after reading till the end of the chapter -- seems all protocol the author mentioned in the chapter (including TCP, UDP, ARP, RARP) are all belonging to the "network layer". I could not challenge him though wikipedia told me "NO".
