What readers of the previous editions had to say:"With jargon-free definitions, clear schematic drawings and its steady narrative drive,The Essential Guide to Telecommunications is a reassuring testament to the human ability to comprehend and communicate at some fundamental level even the most bewildering technology."
―David Warsh, The Boston Globe"This book cuts through all the jargon and mysterious acronyms to give easily understood explanations of telecommunications, from the basics to the latest technology. I refer to it on a regular basis and constantly recommend it to others."
―Michael Rieke, Editor of the Dow Jones Bandwidth Intelligence Alert"It is fair to say that Annabel Dodd has done more to demystify the industry for more people than anyone else in Massachusetts. For those who don't know bandwidth from a band saw or optical networks from an ophthalmologist, Dodd's book offers valuable insights into the products and services that fall under the telecommunications umbrella."
―Katherine Raphaelson, Director, Massachusetts Telecommunications Council"This book is written for those who have little or no technical background. It's an easy-to-read overview of much of the technology available now and great if you have no patience for technical terminology."
―George Runkle, The Motley Fool, Inc.

I liked the book. However, it does contain a mountain of telecommunications concepts and information, sometimes overwhelming, and the material is presented in a sort of encyclopedic way, one subject after the next in short bursts of explanations. So, by the time you get through with the 550 pages, you will definitely have a good introduction to the overall subject. Be advised, however, that if you aren't familiar with telecommunications, (if you know zero, then I suggest you read a simpler book first) it' s not only a huge field of technology; it's also extremely complicated. This is not an over night read. In fact, because of the sheer volume of information presented in this book you may have to read it more than once in order to get a real hold of the subject matter. Some of the stuff will definitely make you dose off, while other parts will grip your interest. I managed to read it twice, and I still felt like crying.
Now for all of you out there who have an interest in the topic of "mergers and acquisitions," especially as it relates to the telecommunications industry, this book should definitely appeal to you. It contains a multitude of examples of how the industry has grown and changed throughout the years. You'll be able to trace the major players from their meager beginnings throughout all the ventures, combinations, mergers and out and out takeovers that are part and parcel of this complex industry. No matter which way you cut it, this is a fascinating topic.
All in all, I give this book a high recommendation.
It does not, however, provide much depth on any one technology. Most topics, such as ATM, SONET, etc., are covered in one to four pages each. It was significantly less than I was looking for, but I am still impressed with how well Ms. Dodd covered such a broad range of topics. Anyone with a high school education, no telecom experience, and the motivation to do it, could read and learn from this book.
