If you are unsure where to start with networking in Unity, this book is a great book for you.
While the approach is fairly straight-forward, and accessible; the advanced user will find a few things lacking.
This book covers a number of 3rd party tools, the life-blood of Unity3d, and gives fairly simple instruction on using them.
there are a few gotchas:
The first of which is that the ‘Built-in’ unity networking, Raknet, is out of date in unity 4.x and requires quite a bit of work to use in practice… to use the newest RAKnet packages requires a Source licence for UnIty3d, not something the beginner has or wants.
the second of which is that there is very little, Advance topics and material. making the leap from this book to more advanced networking, less experienced users may have difficulty.
overall, i think this is a good place to start if you are a beginner, however you will need additional intermediate material, before becoming comfortable with advance multiplayer techniques.
