Elements of Networking Style, Michael A. Padlipsky, 1984.  How could anyone
*not* love a book which includes this in the foreword:

	Brace yourselves.  We are about to try something that borders
	on the unique: an actually rather serious technical book which
	is not only (gasp) vehemently anti-Solemn but also (shudder)
	takes sides.  I tend to think of it as "Constructive Snottiness".


p.s. And anything/everything Stevens wrote.
