About the Author
Roger C. Palmer, P.Eng. was born in England, but spent most of his early years in Canada. He received a Bachelor of Engineering degree (McMaster University) and an MBA (University of Washington). Over the years, Roger has co-founded three companies involved in developing and manufacturing electronic test equipment for the communications industry. He became involved in Automatic Identification when he joined INTERMEC Corporation (a manufacturer of bar code products and systems) in 1978. He held several high level positions at Intermec, eventually becoming Vice President, Technology. In 1994 Roger and his family decided that the lifestyle offered in British Columbia was so attractive that it overshadowed the security of having a regular job, so he announced an early retirement from Intermec and moved to Victoria, B.C. Since then he has operated a small consulting company called Palmer Technologies Inc., which provides services to a number of clients involved in different High-Tech technical fields, and he has been involved as an expert witness in several patent litigations and contract disputes. Roger is intimately familiar with bar code technology and equipment. He has served as chairman of AIM's Technical Symbology Committee and also as chairman of the HIBCC's Technical Committee. He was an active member of the ANSI committee that developed the first bar code standards. He has several patents and has been a frequent publisher and speaker on all aspects of bar code technology. He is a member of the IEEE, APEGBC, ARRL, EAA, and the Institute of Navigation. Apart from the Automatic Identification industry, Roger remains current in many other high-tech fields, and he has assisted companies in evaluating technical trends, developing business strategic plans, or refining product designs. Outside of work, his interests include flying, yacht racing, cruising, computers, electronics, and amateur radio. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the Province of British Columbia. Roger and his family live next to the harbor in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

I regularly see a variety of barcode: Interleaved 2/5, code39, code 128, EAN13 and UPC-A, and in most cases the book has very useful information.
The book has provided me with very helpful information concerning barcode verification and explaining a lot of terms
The index could really use some updating to help readers find all information on an issue easily and also help pin-pointing the most relevant pages in the book. Personally I've missed some words in the index, and also been frustrated when I have to read all pages listed in the index for a specific word, to find out which page really focus in the issue.
The book now almost always lies on my desk to be at hand when new questions arise. I recommend it, but also request for an update.
Both were complaining that there were barcode issues. I bought the book and showed it to them. Altho' both vendors were certain that they were right, each had to make changes. We're now successfully interfaced.
If you gotta know about barcodes, this is the book to have!
Thanx Mr Palmer
