Anyway, it sounds like it is likely a "good book" and worth having, but I'd 
prefer to get some independent confirmation before parting with the $.

To anticipate the question -- yes, given the reprint of the "flap blurbs" on 
the amazon page..

..it sounds like it nominally covers the ground I'm interested in knowing more 
about (e.g. Web caching and multimedia streaming, the Apache Web server, Squid 
proxy, and traffic measurement techniques).

thanks,
