Computer Networks, 5/e is appropriate for Computer Networking or Introduction to Networking courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, CIS, MIS, and Business Departments.
Tanenbaum takes a structured approach to explaining how networks work from the inside out. He starts with an explanation of the physical layer of networking, computer hardware and transmission systems; then works his way up to network applications. Tanenbaum's in-depth application coverage includes email; the domain name system; the World Wide Web (both client- and server-side); and multimedia (including voice over IP, Internet radio video on demand, video conferencing, and streaming media. Each chapter follows a consistent approach: Tanenbaum presents key principles, then illustrates them utilizing real-world example networks that run through the entire book—the Internet, and wireless networks, including Wireless LANs, broadband wireless and Bluetooth. The Fifth Edition includes a chapter devoted exclusively to network security. The textbook is supplemented by a Solutions Manual, as well as a Website containing PowerPoint slides, art in various forms, and other tools for instruction, including a protocol simulator whereby students can develop and test their own network protocols.
Andrew S. Tanenbaum is a Professor of Computer Science at Vrije Universiteteit, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He is a fellow of IEEE and ACM and a member of the Netherlands Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences. He recently won a prestigious European Research Council Advanced Grant of 2.5 million to do research on highly reliable computer systems. Tanenbaum has also authored or coauthored the following titles: Structured Computer Organization, Fifth Edition; Operating Systems: Design and Implementation, Third Edition; and Distributed Systems: Principles and Paradigms, Second Edition, all published by Prentice Hall.
David J. Wetherall is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle. He hails from Australia and has worked in the area of networking for the past two decades. His research is focused on Internet protocols, wireless networks, and security. Wetherall's work has been recognized with a Sloan Fellowship, the IEEE Bennett Prize, and the ACM SIGCOMM Test-of-Time Award.

New interesting topics as RFID and 3g-4g cellular networks are also commented in good detail...I would say not "mile wide, inch deep", but "mile wide, two inches deep"
I do not give them 5 stars because the problems and exercises at the end of each chapter do not have the solution (or at least the correct answer)...why not sharing the information once and for all???...
This is not a knock on the reviewers who rated it poorly, but rather an attempt to ward off those who don't have preliminary interest from buying this book. If you already have the interest, this a fantastic reference source. For those looking for a first course in networking, I would tend to recommend Kurose and Ross over this book for its more accessible wording and topic coverage. This is still a nice one to have in the collection though.
I figured out that a better way might be something a bit more ... interactive. So I decided to scratch my itch and I signed up to 'Computer Networks' course at coursera.org. During the first lecture they told me that recommended textbook is ... guess what. Gee.
To my surprise this combination worked very well. I was taught some topic, and then I browsed over the book, skipped sections I was already familiar with, and stopped where it made sense to dig deeper.
Content is really comprehensive. You will start with really really low level basics (signals, bits, noises), go through all the important hardware (switches, routers, hubs etc.), explore various protocol stacks (say hi to TCP, IP, HTTP ...) and even learn about hi-tech stuff from future and face interesting problematics of growing networks of today. And much more. I couldn't even imagine how broad is this before I opened the book.
To sum up, this book is an excellent learning resource. Don't read it if you are not really serious about learning something about computer networks though! It's not exactly easy reading and it is going to cost you quite a lot of energy to get to the end. But man, it's definitely worth it!
