If its a free downloadble pdf, it will be better.

TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols by W. Richard Stevens is the classic book about how the Internet works.

For a book with a little less detail but better coverage of modern technologies such as phone networks and WiFi, try Computer Networks by Andrew Tanenbaum.

Hope this helps.
