About the First Edition:
Whichever other communications dictionary you have, you can make room for this one. In fact, it is so distinctive as to make comparison with other glossaries very difficult. The strongest emphasis in this work is the historical background, giving information on a great deal of early development, as well as quick biographies of pioneers in the area…written at the right level, and with the right scope, for the home market…Professionals will most certainly find it fascinating reading, with a great many historical points and canned biographies.
–Robert M. Slade, Internet Review Project

Book Description:

With the rapid pace of advances in communications, no reference can claim to be current for more than a very few years after publication. The bestselling first edition of this remarkable dictionary drew praise from readers around the world as a distinctive work written at the right level, with the right scope for the home market as well as for professionals. With the addition of more than 1000 new definitions, the second edition expands its coverage to reflect areas of growing interest, including greater attention to fiberoptic networking and to UNIX. Refinements in layout and organization make the new edition even friendlier than the first and arguably the best telecommunications dictionary on the market.
