5.0 out of 5 stars An informative analysis on just what went wrong, May 6, 2005
This review is from: The Great Telecom Meltdown (Hardcover)
In The Great Telecom Meltdown, author and telecommunications expert Fred R. Goldstein offers an informed and informative analysis on just what went wrong with the telecom industry when the telecom stock market bubble burst. Moreover, Goldstein offers invaluable and practical advice for keeping this economic disaster from reoccurring, and even how to profit from such an event in the future. Of special note is Goldstein's analysis revealing that the dysfunctional elements that would lead to the boom-bust cycle crash of the telecommunications industry began long before the Telecom Act of 1996 (itself a belated, overly compromised reaction to an obsolete regulatory model). Highly recommended and essential reading for anyone working, regulating, or investing in the telecommunications industry, The Great Telecom Meltdown is completely accessible for non-specialist general readers with an interest in how the telecom bubble came to burst.

This review is from: The Great Telecom Meltdown (Hardcover)
Fred Goldstein is a well informed and thorough research/helper in the industry who has spent considerable resources learning nearly everything possible as to how the telecommunications industry functions. He has a good handle on both the basics and the esoteric with regard to telecom and Internet.

The writing is carefully worded to clarify and not confuse, yet it's not dumbed down or overly technical. Many things don't change in telecom, and it's history is extremely pertinent to current telecom wranglings, so it's still a worthwhile read even if it's not hot off the press.
