I agree with you. It's a lot of information, so how can someone decide which protocols are important?

Well, depends on who you are asking. If you are a beginner most in this book isn't needed, the author is a legend in his field, but I would rather start with practical experience to make yourself familiar with one thing at a time. There are very few cases where someone would need to know all low-level and high level-protocols in use like ARP, ICMP, IGMP, DNS, TFTP, BOOTP, TCP, TELNET, FTP, HTTP, SMTP and DHCP. I would pick one that you are interested in and then dig deeper. If you are already familiar with networking, let's say using TCP/UDP/DNS, it could be interesting to dig deeper and see how things work in detail and how on a deeper OSI-level. Let's say how IP/TCP/UDP/routing/switching/ARP works, definitely worth the time in the log run! But it could also that you want to specialise in application layer protocol design, then it would be better to focus on HTTP/IMAP/SMTP/POP/XMPP, the theory and design decision behind them. Another area to specialise is encryption, which algorithms have been used trough time, how to exchange keys/certificates and how communication integrates with applications.

Regarding Volume 2, not sure. The only book from W. Richard Stevens I personally own is UNIX Network Programming: Networking APIs: Sockets and XTI. Very detailed book, he really enjoyed writing about the topic and it's a classic if you are into network programming.

Hope it helps!
