I recommend this book to technicians who are new to the GPRS and EDGE worlds and need a working knowledge of GPRS/EDGE.
All three were very superficial, with most of the material in each publication being used in the others. This is not serious publication - you can get as much information just searching the web. Save your money for serious texts.
I do not recommend any publications by this author.
