Format: Hardcover
The publication of a book such as this is timely and a very good idea. Direct conversion is becoming a reality in wireless terminals and its presence in BTSs may not be long off. That being said, this book is based on the author's dissertation from Helsinki University of Technology and hence was not written in English. While I can only dream wildly of my Finnish being as competent as the author's English, this book requires serious editing. I won't speculate as to why it didn't get it in the first place.
Much of the text involves a treatment of radio specifications that are general and available elsewhere. Where the book is novel is in it's later focus on direct conversion and the challenges that are specific to that architecture. These are, again, published elsewhere, but usually in paper form (or worse, conference paper form) and hence are very hand-waving and left wanting for details.
Unfortuately, I find the text almost unreadable at times due to poor grammar. Statements and facts become ambiguous, and the summarizing of effects on a particular phenomenon (such as DC offsets) become incomprehensible.
I would like to see this published again, but with the aid of a good technical editor who can make it more appetizing to the reader (Razavi, if he does this sort of thing, would be a great choice, but I'm just dreaming now).
