Though not perfect, it is still the best book around on wireless networks. It was chosen as the course book for mobile and wireless networks course during my graduation. I liked it very much and enjoyed reading it. It is written in a simple and easy to follow style, avoiding unnecessary text and explanations. It covers a wide range of topics in wireless networks, e.g., MAC for wireless, telecom networks, WLANs, mobile network layer (Mobile IP and etc), mobile transport layer, and satellite and broadcast systems, along with an introductory chapter on wireless transmission fundamentals. However it is SERIOUSLY missing IEEE 802.16 WiMAX.I have consulted a few other books in this area. In particular, I found it better than William Stallings's Wireless Communications & Networks.
I think this is the only book that present you the whole perspective of mobile communications from a computer science point of view, it goes deep in details, but is not intended for Math people, most for computer people. This helps me a lot to understand the big perspective of a Mobile telephony carrier.
It looked nothing like the cover, the ISBN had a sticker over it. I couldn't peel off the sticker to look and see if it was the same book. The book printing was light on some pages and dark on others. I think this was a knock off copy from the reseller.
It's a completed and necessary material for graduated mobile communications course. Very easy to understand.
