Quick Look: Complete Communications
The necessary reference for any network.
How many times have you tried to do something with your network and couldn't
quite get the technology right? How many times did you go looking for
some explanation of how something worked? Or how many times did you just
want to know how something worked, but didn't really want to have to mine
for the information?
Pro: Comprehensive, complete reference
covers lots of subjects.
Con: 1,075 pages of technical info may be a tad daunting
to casual readers.
Verdict: Necessary for anyone involved in communications
Well, as a communications junkie, I've asked all these questions at one
point or another. That's why I found this Communications Handbook a great
addition to my library. Each chapter is filled with great information,
some covering the basics, others getting pretty advanced.
If you're a technologist of any kind and do any business in communications,
this book needs to be at least on your shelf, if not bent up, worn down,
dog-eared and read.
