Rating: 4 out of 5
Good but very simple
This covers many aspects of wireless and is useful as an intriduction to the most basic concepts. The amount of technical detial could be more without sacrificing simplicity, but I share it with my students or colleagues who have little knowledge of this area and wish for an overview.
