I have intended this book to be used in two ways:
As an educational text that you will read through, chapter by chapter, in order to gain an understanding of packet analysis. This means paying particular attention to the real-world scenarios in the last several chapters.
As a reference resource. There are some features of Wireshark that you will not use very often, so you may forget how they work. Practical Packet Analysis is a great book to have on your bookshelf when you need a quick refresher about how to use a specific feature. I’ve also provided some unique charts, diagrams, and methodologies that may prove to be useful references when doing packet analysis for your job.
