I bought this book for a research project in antenna design

the maths is heavy, so don't expect to be able to zoom through it without companion maths and electrodynamics books, even at that there are prerequisites included that serve as a revision.

very good book

Would I recommend the book? Yes and No.
Yes for the student in RF engineering.
No for the engineers looking for a practical guide.

It's a very academic book and as such is probably the best option out there. If however one is lookig for a "practical guide" to antenna design then there are other books out there that do a much better job in a far less verbose format.
Having left university quite a while ago the high level of maths in this book are a major turn off. It's not unsurmountable though. It just takes time for things to come back from the depths of memory.
The accompanying CD is only of avlue if you have access to Matlab as that is the author's tool of choice. In the age of open-source software one would expect the use of scilab or similar.
Did it help me in my job? Not quite. But then it takes time to digest the 1600+ pages into something useful. Would I have bought it if I had seen it in a library first? No, never...
