I did not know what I was getting into, but I knew that I was going to switch to satellite. From what research I did on my own as well as experienced opinions of personal friends, I knew that it was probably the better option for our home. I purchased the book "Digital Television blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah the-Air" hoping for an upbeat introduction to the new technology and maybe some tips on useful accessories etc.
The book totally does not hold my attention.
Dudek is probably still a teacher somewhere at a trade school or maybe even a college. His students may find this book handy as a study guide, but it is not a consumer oriented book. Dedek may be an unmatched expert at this stuff, but the book reads like a study guide for a course that is completed in one semester.
All in all a great book
Given that we're all switching to digital TV in the next few years, this book should be considered a "must read" for anyone who wants to feel comfortable with all the new technologies available to them.
