Chapter 1, Figure 1-1

Figure 1-1 has a caption of "Lantency (ms)" but I think perhaps its a typo and should say "Latency (ms)"?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thanks, great catch! Fixed the diagram in online version, and it should be updated in future e/print releases.

Figure 2-5. Fetching a file over a new TCP connection

On the right, one of the boxes say "4x TCP Segments 5480 bytes". It should be 5880(1460*4).

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thank you, great catch! Looks like the numbers got transposed and this should be fixed in future releases (aka, should read 5840, instead of 5480).

Figure 2-8

On figure 2-8 it should be P1 P2 P3 on the picture of the "bottom" TCP buffer, not P2, P2, P3. I'm sorry. I don't know how to find page on HTML version.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thanks for reporting this - great catch! I've fixed the online version, and update should be picked up in future print runs.

Chapter 4, Susbsubject "Early Termination"

I think it's skipped link or something else is wrong at the fragment: "First, recall that every TCP connection begins with a three-way handshake (explained )". Explained what?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Great catch, thanks for reporting this! This was a bug in the digital versions and it should be all fixed up -- the HTML version is already fixed and live, and if you have a Kindle / PDF file which you downloaded earlier, then you can grab an updated copy in your account.

First set of bullets, third bullet

The text says "Use a single single connection..." - single is repeated.

Note from the Author or Editor:
