If you have need for a book on the topic, you will not be disappointed with this one.
Perhaps my expectations were out somewhat but I was also expecting the book to cover the flow of packets through the system in a little more detail. There's only a few pictures that aren't all that clear. There's no description of the path, no real explanation of the images.
To sum up: you'd be better off printing out the iptable manual page. It covers the functionality in far greater detail. There's also good documentation available on the netfilter website that also covers concepts that you'll need.
As for the extensions, I found reading the description of the modules (when building the Linux kernel) quite informative. Your mileage may vary :)
It's short and sweet. It describes what you should know, and gives you a reference for dealing with iptables syntax, and that's it. No flowery text, no colored pictures. Just simple "This is how to do X."
If you're a sysadmin, especially if you're just getting your feet wet, get this book. It's cheap, it tells you what you need to know, and it fits in your pocket. What's not to like?
What I liked the most is that it has really lots of information (very good variety of matches and targets), but I really disliked the facts that:
It doesn't detail how to structure an iptables command (step by step at least).
it explains the matches and targets in the same section, kind of a mixture of both, fact that completely puzzled me.
It organizes the explanation in alphabetical order, criteria that I thing is the worst to organize technical topics.
It is useful if you already understand iptables, but if you are a freshman, you really need to get more information sources.
