This book will appeal to technically versed people who are interested not only in the history of the internet but also in the inner-workings of networks and how the various protocols of the internet (TCP, TCP/IP, FTP, SMTP, etc) came into existence.

Knowing about the origins of computing and the internet is something that hasn't been made that we'll known, even to people with an interest in technology.
I found the story fascinating, and often listened to bits of the story a couple times just to get the facts right.
The book mixes social, personal and technical aspects of the early days of computer networking - the people and the personalities behind it all really shine out. Whilst the subject is matter is technical the book should be accessible to non technical readers as it doesn't go too heavily into the technical aspects, a basic understanding of networking would help you get more out of the book though.
