A few years ago, in my pursuit of becoming an IPv6 SME, my IPv6 mentor Jeremy Duncan (@nacnud) recommended this book to me. Written by Sylvia Hagen (@sunny_shagen), I must say I was very pleased once I finished reading. It was not a complicated read at all and I highly recommend it as a starting point for anyone who wants to learn about the IPv6 protocol.twit
Also, there are quite a few RFC’s I would recommend as well but they can get quite boring very quickly. You will not have that problem after reading Sylvia’s book.
On a side note, there are very few celebrities I would get excited about meeting. Weird, but I’m more excited to meet individuals in my field that I respect than an athlete/musician/actor/actress. So, when I finally had these two in the same place at the same time at the 2013 IPv6 Summit I had to get a picture. I think Sylvia was taken aback by my excitement.
