HASH(0x9354dd20) out of 5 stars This is one of the good ones 21 Jun. 2002
By Daniel L. Elsner - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
If you are using Ethernet in an industrial environment, you've got to have this book! Even though it's billed as a pocket guide (it really is pocket sized), you could also use it as a desk reference. It has concise and to the point coverage of every aspect of Industrial Ethernet.
Even though I had planned on using this just for reference, I found so many interesting things in it that I started reading it. I really enjoyed the writing style which, unlike other books, didn't put me to sleep. This book is easy to read and understand, even for an old timer like me.

HASH(0x9354df0c) out of 5 stars Don't Miss this Precise and Concise 'ALL @ Ethernet' guide 18 July 2002
By Indiver Dwivedi - Published on
Format: Paperback
I must Thank and congratulate Perry for coming up with such a nice Guide. He has made a wonderful contribution to help everybody with his 'complete' work on Industrial Ethernet.
Two years back I had handed over around 25 SCADA projects to respective maintenance teams. I wish I could include this guide in the 'Hand-Over list' to the guys who are responsible to keep the huge plants running 24x7. As of now, I am going to call them up personally and recommend this work.
While discussing the advantages of this book, Somebody argued that all this information and much more is already available on the internet, provided some body cares to search.
I replied to him in a one liner: 'When you need to put off fire, you dont start digging a well to fetch water'.
This book is THE source you can depend on, when you need it.
The text is pretty lucid, and the result is that the jargon terms appear natural to a reader. I strongly recommend this book to anybody who deals with Industrial Ethernet in any way.

Perfect Work! A must have!

HASH(0x935f81d4) out of 5 stars Great little reference book 4 Jan. 2003
By russ weimer - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
This is a great book. Like the size - perfect for job site references. It always gets passed around! The material is well presented. Perry does an excellent job of providing "need-to-know" information in an extremely easy to follow format. I would strongly recommend this pocket guide to automation and control engineers and technicians. Buy this book - I guarantee it will find a spot in your tool pouch!

HASH(0x937b8210) out of 5 stars A pocket guide worth keeping in my pocket 8 July 2002
By Daniel Chartier - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I'm used to Ethernet reference books that occupy huge volumes in my company's library; they require time and determination to find answers to a specific problem and are never accessible when you are out in the field. When I saw Perry S. Marshall's Industrial Ethernet- A pocket guide, I was surprised by its small size; it's, well, really pocket sized. And it is nort small, once you start working with it; it is rather compact, or concise, and to the point. Information is laid out systematically,topically and logically; you can find both general info and troubleshooting tips on hardware, cabling and protocols covering the whole range of typical problems found in network maintenance. This little book is now part of my toolbox, and it should complement anyone's who is faced with Ethernet problems on the plant floor. It has already proven its worth to me in helping me correct networking problems I have been faced with in the field.

HASH(0x937af114) out of 5 stars Best control book of the year-- must read! 1 July 2002
By Walt Boyes - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Pocket Guide is one of my desk reference books since I got an advance copy of it. It is written so even idiots like me can understand it, and use it. I think it is in the same league as Glover's Pocket Ref, and the Pocket Pal for graphic artists. If you work with Industrial Ethernet, you better buy this book, and stick it in your pocket, briefcase, tool box, or whatever you
carry around on the job with you. If you think you need to know about Industrial Ethernet, buy this book and carry it around in your pocket for when you have a chance to catch five minutes and read a few pages.
This is the best book published by ISA this year. And that includes my own book, "eBusiness in Manufacturing" so that says a lot.
