Customer Review

on 8 October 2011
This is quite a good introductory book to this topic. However, as you would expect from a book that covers such a wide topic, it sometime suffers from superficial explanations. I am only really qualified to critique topics covering physics and telecommunications, but there I can see some weak and incomplete descriptions. This is rescued by each chapter having copious references so that you can chase down any point that you don't understand. Another important point is that this book has twenty chapters with changing authors on each one. This leads to slightly uneven editing overall, but then means (presumably) that each chapter has an expert on that field writing it.

Though this might sound negative, overall the book is very good, and the normally excellent descriptions covering a large topic (and copious references) provide a very interesting read.
