    A Peering Bible

    Bill Norton has accomplished an excellent job by authoring this book and sharing his in-depth knowledge of the Internet ecosystem and hard-to-achieve experience of the industry with us. It provides a high-resolution picture of the network each of us deal with in our daily life from a business and decision-making process point of view. So for people from our industry it is a bible to prepare the business case proposals and win their negotiations, but this is not were the Playbook stops. Academicians have already enjoyed the clear-cut depiction of the data markets presented by Bill here to develop their analytic models.

    Excellent, complete reference manual

    From an introduction to the differences between transit and peering, to practical advice on how to navigate peering arrangements, this book is an excellent reference manual.

    Excellent reference for policy wonks

    I'm an engineer turned policy wonk who writes reports on Interenet policy several times a year. I frequently have to explain how the Internet works, especially with regard to peering and transit, and find Norton's work indispensible. It's a rare report in which I don't cite Dr. Peering, so it's great to have so many of his relevant topics in one place. There's really nothing else out there that does what this book does, and fortunately The Internet Peering Playbook does it well.
