This book is a nice introduction to an expansive topic. The book is divided into six sections that cover introductory material, streams, the java.net package, some alternatives to java.net such as CORBA, message streams, and an appendix containing networking information. There is a good amount of example code and the authors walk you through a number of larger examples in each area.
I especially liked the small diagrams placed throughout the book to illustrate concepts and what the code is doing. The book does have the problem of presenting too much information already available in the API's javadocs.
Overall, a good introduction to Java networking.
