Books for the NOC guys...

This morning I went digging for a book to recommend that someone in
our NOC read in order to understand at a high level how Internet
infrastructure works (bgp, igps, etc) and discovered that the old
standbys (Huitema, Halabi, Perlman) have all not been updated in a
decade or so.

On the one hand, they're all still quite relevant since there hasn't
been anything really earth-shattering in that department, but they are
all going to be lean to nonexistent on stuff like IPv6 and NLRI negotiation.

So, what are you having your up-and-coming NOC staff read?
