It seems quite old and not very practical :

* it never mentions RFC 1219,
* it mentions IPv6 in a few words, without any practical considerations,
* it explains the old classfull addressing first, instead of talking CIDR
right from the beginning.

have a look at Designing Addressing Architectures for Routing and Switching
by Howard Berkowitz. You'll find analogies between IP addressing and the
Ming dynasty.
