4.0 out of 5 stars Manager's Book November 3, 2006
By A. K.
This book is excellent for Managers as it provides high level introduction to RFID, also recommended for beginners who are new to RFID. This book provides a good insight on how to conduct a RFID pilot/project.

It is not a technical persons or engineers book. The book briefly covers all the important aspects of RFID from Physics to Middleware integration and therefore making it a great first RFID book.
