Excellent Wireless Primer
This book serves as a good primer into all the ways you can use your Mac without wires. WiFi, Bluetooth, GPRS, and even the old infrared standards are covered. If you haven't played with the wireless capabilities of your Mac, this book will help you explore them and get you on the web while sipping coffee at the corner shop. And even if you have played extensively with what your Mac can do without wires, you'll still find a few tidbits that you probably haven't run into before.

Dori and Tom have created a total guide to handling wireless networking and peripheral work that is just plain outstanding. If you've got a wireless card, or have bluetooth, and you've not played with it, or dabbled in it, or even if you've got a great understanding of WiFi and you're syncing your Bluetooth phone with a headset and your laptop, all the while using the phone's GPRS connection to post a review like this one, then this is a book for you.
They explain the complicated, but don't dumb it down entirely, so you've got an excellent contrast of approaches.
This is not one to miss.
