Reading material needed "Sockets"

I need reading material on programming with Windows Sockets.
I have read everything that MSDN has to offer (that I could find) and
I have looked at the Chatter & ChatSrvr programs in Visual C++
samples.  I have a basic understanding of how Sockets work and
can follow the sample code to a point.  BUT I have seen samples in
different ways and need a better overall understanding of what's going
on.  What I need is a How To book that teaches from the ground up.
I will be using sockets for TCP/IP communications between multiple
programs over a LAN.  If I could get an author and publisher it would be
much appreciated.   THANKS -------jrmcg.

The best book IMHO is "Unix Network Programming" by Stevens. It's about BSD sockets, and WinSock is very similar (although not identical) to BSD sockets.

There is also "Windows Sockets Network Programming" by Quinn & ???, but the Stevens book is better IMHO.

I'm a big fan of online information repositories.  I suggest you look at http://www.sockets.com/ for lots of info, pointers and references.

Two more interesting sites are:
