This book manages to give an encyclopedic overview of microwave engineering but wrote in an easy to read almost novel formate. I found myself excited to most to the next chapter and not being able to put it down. Pozar covers all of the important into topics with passive engineering and even makes it into active and nonlinear microwave engineering. Provided me with a very solid foundation for advance books and courses in microwave engineering.

This is a fantastic book. Wish I had it 50 years ago! The material is vast and considered all parts of microwave design from transmission, to antennas, to devices, to system elements. I would argue that this is a must have for anyone in microwave engineering. The author has done a superb job in presenting the material without taking the reader down the path of theoretic drivel. This is a classic in engineering presentation. It balances theory with application and is as current as any text of this type can be.

I initially bought one of those cheap international editions of this book for next to nothing, and after reading it and truly appreciating its content I decided to buy the real deal and I bought the hardcover US edition.

This is one of the standard books that will be held as a reference for many generations to come, its directed towards graduate students, yet it starts from the basics, such as a review of Maxwell equations, transmission line theory, etc...

Im currently studying a master's degree in rf design, and all my teachers love and praise this book, and I can understand why, the writting style is clear, the content is specialized and the author covers many different applications of microwave engineering all the way from materials to communications circuits. The chapters on transmission lines are great, this is probably the best book I've read regarding waveguides.

The price of the hardcover book seems to be very high, again it looks like the editor is taking advantage by overpricing this book, however like I said, I believe it is so good that its worth getting the hardcover edition and keeping it for years to come. You can of course buy the international edition of this book, which has the same content and its just a fraction of its price.

This is a good book (as other reviewers have mentioned). I don't think it is the final word on introductory Microwave Engineering but it is definitely up there. The main attraction for learning microwave from this book is the stark clarity. Although I did not use it as a primary textbook it would make a great self-study.

I would also recommend Microwave Engineering by R.E. Collin and Microwave and RF Design: A System Approach by Steer. Early editions of both of these can be had for cheap. I prefer Collin but it requires a careful read.

EDIT: I forgot to point out that I own two editions (1st and 4th) and intend to keep both!

Conceptual development is good in most cases, but lacking clarity and simplicity from a student point of view. There are unaccounted for gaps in the logic chain, overly complex treatments that causes one to look to other resources for understanding. Beware development is not sequential always, in text and in exercises. Had to refer to Schaum's and Ulaby several times to supplement. Requires a good electromagnetics class beforehand. Struggled through it, and found errors in the text (e.g. Pp 179 - 180, Exp 4.4 "V1+" and Fig 5.2, pp 229). Errata would be useful.

Great microwave engineering book. Pozar really makes the material really easy to understand. This is a really great introductory book to antennas and the like to build a general foundation for further studies.

This book is simply a must have in your engineering library! The text is clear and concise and the examples are relevant and useful. This book used to sell for $120+, for whatever reason it's selling for <$50 and for that price you shouldn't pass it up.
