HASH(0x9b62d150) out of 5 stars Good overview of Internet of Things 9 July 2012
By Ronald K. Jeffries - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is an excellent high-level introduction and overview of the so-called Internet of Things (IoT). Working primarily from secondary sources, the author paints an engaging picture of what IoT is now and may become.

I especially appreciate Chaper 5 "History" which contains background I had not read before.

It's a good and informative read, and the price is right.

One nit to pick: since I skimmed, I may have missed this, but I did not notice a mention of the similar term "Machine to Machine" (M2M).

HASH(0x9bef1780) out of 5 stars Engaging with Smart Stuff 7 Aug. 2012
By Steve Bell - KeySo Global - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
David Stephenson's book "Smart Stuff" captures the current state of thinking around the Internet of Things (IoT) and explains via a future vision the opportunities it can enable. With easily understood text it shares the origins and history of IoT, giving multiple examples of user cases that demonstrate the enormous potential and scope of applications that IoT will facilitate in the health, utility and transport industries. Perhaps the most significant impact the book will have is on those people who are unaware of the power of IoT as it encourages them to embrace the possibilities it offers, and actively engage via tinkering or participation in communities that are playing with IoT. In this way, individuals will become more open minded about its potential and rethink just about every process that we currently take as a defacto part of everyday life.

HASH(0x9b6f966c) out of 5 stars IoT Grand Tour 25 Jun. 2012
By Phil Windley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a good introduction for anyone wondering what the IoT is and what they should be doing about it. David has done a good job of explaining the Internet of Things (IoT), capturing the reasons why it makes sense and elucidating the drivers that are taking us there. I think understanding the "Obstacles" chapter is critical for anyone hoping to bring the IoT about.

HASH(0x9b6f942c) out of 5 stars A much needed preview of things to come 21 Jun. 2012
By EW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book combines a collection of forward-looking ideas with the current state of networked objects. It's useful for getting caught up to where we are and for framing the discussion about where this field is going.
