Book: Peer-to-Peer: Building Secure, Scalable, and Manageable Networks

Note to self: when you want to get a book on a technical subject, go with geek-oriented publishers like O’Reilly.

This book is terrible. It has a few good insights about building P2P systems, but the collective wisdom of this volume could easily fit in a book less than a quarter of the size. The rest is filled with rambling prose, condescending and superfluous metaphors, and atrocious grammar. Bleh.
