If you are a geodesy expert looking for a mathematical treatment of GPS theory, look elsewhere (there are several good books). If you are looking for a good collegiate-level descriptive text, this is a great choice. Clear, concise, and with all the latest info including WAAS, RTK, and similar topics. Reviewed for content by Dr. Dave Wells and written by an expert in the field, this is a super reference.

Got this to supplement pilot training on GPS. Provides lots of information not found in "basic" GPS books without all of the techno-bable (well there is a little, but not too much).

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for up to an intermediary level. Good for those who look for a "warm start." And can easily serve as textbook for engineering courses. Well written. Worth to have around as a quick reference.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most useful GPS books I have. It's a wonderful reference for the entire GPS system. The information is presented simply without mathematical equations, yet the technical depth is sufficient to cover many details that engineers and professionals need to understand. The book also contains many useful references for those who require additional depth.
