How is that? Halabi's "Internet Routing Architectures" is really good,
but not really the best intro to the topic. :) It's also completely
Cisco-centric (being a Cisco Press book and all). Does the O'Reilly book
cover Juniper or any open source BGP implementations? Is it fairly
example-heavy? How does it compare to Halabi's book?
