Reviews

From the reviews:

"Provides rich background information to beginners entering this subject area. … The diagrams … are clear-cut, as are the snippets of codes. There are hardly any errors throughout the book. … covers a broad and coherent range of distributed-computing techniques … . People with different programming abilities, even those who have never written a single line of code … learn a lot from it. … recommend the book to anyone interested in distributed computing, especially students in the field of distributed computing … ." (Haoyang Che, THE COMPUTER JOUNAL, Vol. 48(3), 2005)

"Specialists working on different types of novel distributed computing systems will like this book. It will be of interest, for instance, to peer-to-peer (P2P) developers who want to know how a somewhat similar idea of grid computing works, and the other way around. It would also be a good choice for laymen who are looking for a good textbook on these topics. … For people involved with the Internet, this book is a really enjoyable journey through a number of hot topics." (Piotr Cholda, ACM Computing Reviews, July, 2009)
