Would it be ok to read a book written in 2002 to learn networking and TCP/IP?

Yes, TCP/IP v4 has not really changed in decades. You should be more than OK.

As ITG-JM said, IPv4 has been around for decades (since the 1970's and 80's). If you are concerned about IPv6, that is different. The stuff I learned about IPv4 back in the 80's is still relevant today. I still use the DDN White Book as a reference for IPv4 issues, and it was published in 1985.

Thanks everyone!
