I have been using FreeSWITCH for little under a year and enjoy it greatly. If there is one weak spot then it is with the documentation - especially for the beginner. This book plugs this gap very nicely by giving a gentle but thorough introduction, followed by advanced topics including IVR, Lua scripting and even the event socket layer (ESL). There is a good emphasis on explaining architecture - is teaches the why as well as how. Although I am familiar (but by no means an expert) with FreeSWITCH, I still found myself learning a great deal in the very early pages. If you have an interest in VoIP and open source telephony - this is a must have.

You can count on this book being different from any other technical voip book available today. It is a must have publication for the voip novice or an advanced engineer wishing to use Freeswitch. After reading the first chapter it is easy to see there is a large amount of information in the book and reading it more than once is recommended to help with absorbing the material.

Upon completing the first half of the book readers will find their understanding of not only Freeswitch but of the voice over internet protocol will be greatly enhanced. The book tells readers the beginnings of phone systems and the future of them with the use of Freeswitch. The authors suggest reading the first chapter multiple times at different intervals within the book, I would also endorse this as it helps the reader gain some extra insight into the Freeswitch architecture.

Novice users will find chapter 2 very useful as it goes though the installation process step by step for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It also discusses the different prerequisites for compiling and installing on these different operating systems. I was impressed with the instructions to compile and install on Windows operating systems as they are very in depth making it easy to follow. Not that I would recommend using Freeswitch on top of Windows but if you needed to do so I wouldn't try it without this book.

More advanced topics are introduced in chapter 7 by programing IVR menu's with the built-in Lua language. The subjects and examples covered here are extremely useful to any Freeswitch programer showing basic and advanced menus with database integration. The examples used in the chapter will help readers develop their own sophisticated IVR menus for use within phone systems or enterprise level switches.

Chapter one starts out boldly stating, "A revolution has begun and secrets have been revealed." Indeed. As someone that came upon FreeSWITCH after some discouraging issues with another well known VoIP engine, I found this project to be well engineered, useful, and getting more so all the time. And while there is a great deal of detailed information on FS available via the Internet, one longed for a more "start to finish" treatment, details in that context, a good reference, and perhaps even some historical perspective that one could carry around. I have found this book to be all of those things and then some. I personally like the conversational writing style despite the technical information contained herein. So, if you are seeking information on FreeSWITCH, how to get it up and running, and things one can do with it, well, there is a lot to like about this book. For the FS administrator, this comes highly recommended, as it should be to anyone with some computer science background interested in the subject. And, don't overlook Appendix B for some enjoyable information on how the whole project came to exist. Well done, gentlemen.

I've been working with FreeSWITCH for a while now-- on both small and (very) large scale deployments. Even with my experience, I made the decision to purchase the book (of many reasons supporting the authors of open source software you use seems like the right thing to do). The bottom line? I don't care how experienced you are-- this book will provide you at least one AWESOME tip. It's something I would consider an essential purchase.
