"Can anybody recommend any other books that are of the same calibre and level of detail as those types of books?"
Unfortunately no. This is by far the best book on Cisco switching i have come across. There was rumoured to be a 2nd edition being brought out but it seems to have gone quiet on that front.
Having said that it does cover an awful lot of detail that is still relevant today. It has 2 whole chapters on 802.1d STP which is by far the best coverage of STP i have read. Yes there are more recent versions of STP such as RSTP and MSTP but with a detailed understanding of 802.1d the newer versions are easy to understand.
10 years is a long time in computing but a lot of what it covers is still relevant now, although there are parts of it that admittedly are not. Personally i have found this book together with the many Cisco docs on the more recent features has worked well for me.
Perhaps if you could find it in a bookshop to have a look this may help you decide whether it is what you want or not but as i say i haven't found a book that goes into the same level of detail since.
