Protected very well.

That said, I can't think of any competing book I could recommend that covers the same material. Unlike most every other networking book that's been published in the last 20 years or so, this book *doesn't* limit itself to TCP/IP, but covers frame relay and ATM and actually compares and contrasts the different approaches.
There's also sort of a "middle part" in chapters 7, 8 and 9 that cover probability, queuing theory and self-similarity. For the most part, these chapters are a waste of space, since they don't get into enough depth to cover the material and aren't really used much in the subsequent material.
Also, the exercises at the end of the chapters (all without answers and thus without any means of checking your work) generally can't be completed based on just the material in the chapter itself. In fact, I came across at least one exercise (the "chuck-a-luck" question in chapter 7) whose text was lifted verbatim from one of the chapter's references ("An Introduction to Probability" by Samuel Goldberg - which *does* include answers in the back of the book for self study).
So, although the author's research was impeccable, I have to say he really ought to have let somebody else do his writing for him.
