This is one of those unusual books that manages to convey highly technical information in a very readable and understandable way. At my very first reading, I thought it was a little disjointed; it felt like the chapters were somehow out of order. However, after going back for a second time, I then thought that the order made perfect sense.
This combines practical advice with good technical info. It's the first book I've seen that tells you what resistance levels should be for proper termination, and it gives detailed troubleshooting hints in addition to the raw technical explanations.
There's a CD that is described as containing useful information; unfortunately mine was badly scratched and actually cracked, so I couldn't look at it.
All in all, highly recommended.
Order (or just read more about) The Book of SCSI, 2d Edition from Amazon.com
