OpenBSD's stateful packet filter, PF, offers an amazing feature set and support across the major BSD platforms. Like most firewall software though, unlocking PF's full potential takes a good teacher. Peter N.M. Hansteen's PF website and conference tutorials have helped thousands of users build the networks they need using PF. The Book of PF is the product of Hansteen's knowledge and experience, teaching good practices as well as bare facts and software options. Throughout the book, Hansteen emphasizes the importance of staying in control by having a written network specification, using macros to make rule sets more readable, and performing rigid testing when loading in new rules. Today's system administrators face increasing challenges in the quest for network quality, and The Book of PF can help by demystifying the tools of modern *BSD network defense.But, perhaps more importantly, because we know you like to tinker, The Book of PF tackles a broad range of topics that will stimulate your mind and pad your resume, including how to: Create rule sets for all kinds of network traffic, whether it is crossing a simple home LAN, hiding behind NAT, traversing DMZs, or spanning bridges Use PF to create a wireless access point, and lock it down tight with authpf and special access restrictions Maximize availability by using redirection rules for load balancing and CARP for failover Use tables for proactive defense against would-be attackers and spammers Set up queues and traffic shaping with ALTQ, so your network stays responsive Master your logs with monitoring and visualization, because you can never be too paranoid The Book of PF is written for BSD enthusiasts and network admins at any level of expertise.With more and more services placing high demands on bandwidth and increasing hostility coming from the Internet at-large, you can never be too skilled with PF.

Other than the OpenBSD FAQ's themselves, this is a nice compliment and addition with plenty of good information. There is good information on turning away brute force attacks and about ALTQ that I found were lacking on the OpenBSD site - as thorough as it usually is.
If you set up OpenBSD firewalls, want to try to set them up or have any need whatsoever to use PF in in y our environment this is certainly a good manual to have close by that will certainly give you insight in those couple of little things the FAQs do not. I find myself always looking at it when making config changes.
Once I finished reading this book the only outstanding questions were learning the complete syntax definitions which can be found here:
Thank you for providing us with such an informative and logical read.
