OSI Reference Model Pocket Guide
By Howard Berkowitz

The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model is the basis for much of modern networking. It is a layered model under which all networking protocols and services are defined. Many attempts at explaining OSI become too abstract and require a very high level of network design knowledge and experience to even begin to understand. Written by Howard Berkowitz, this 55-page pocket guide presents a more practical, user-friendly examination of the topic. He effectively utilizes real-life experiences, analogies, and humor to clear up some of the most common confusions and misconceptions associated with the OSI Reference.
