This Bible for broadband users has a lot of good background information on broadband and is a good read for broadband newbies as well as veterans. There are ample screenshots and images used through the chapters to point out how to do things or show you what exactly the author is trying to talk about. A lot of relevant products (like CPE, routers and switches you may want to use and software) are mentioned and their usage explained in an easy and friendly manner. Although a number of configuration steps appear specific to a particular product, such as the configuration of a Netgear Access Point. Checklists are placed where needed.

The focus is on the American reader. 

The broadband part of the book is actually just the first 200 or so pages. After that it moves on to talk about setting up a PC, configuring Ethernet and WiFi LAN, generic network and system security, buying storage (as in NAS) devices, etc.
