Full of Mistakes and Poorly Organized
After having taken a course, then later helped teach a course (University level) using this book I found that it is full of mistakes and difficult to read. Not recommended as an introductory text. The book may serve acceptably as an reference, but it is not a great teaching tool.
Instructors take notice that the electronic solutions to the problem sets have many errors. There are also many errors not acknowledged in the book's errata. (Errata hasn't been updated for 1 year).

a complete introductory on communication systems
This is the book that is used at the University of Toronto in the fundamental courses of communication systems. I would say, althought very hard to read the whole thing in one term, it is an amazing book, very good and concise.
It covers a broad range of topics some to details and some just a scratch. It is very easy to understand and that's where it gets boring!(too much story writing) however, you can be sure that you can understand a topic fully by reading that chapter. Almost no point is left unclear.
It is a very good encyclopedia for this field. I would suggest buying it if you would like introductory stuff plus a bit of technical details but not too gory!
A very good book , overall....:-)
