I have used this book for self study of the topics of multiuser detection and CDMA. The book is written very clearly and the level of math is quiet resonable. One of the advantages of this book stems from the fact that it includes a lot of problems, which part of them are solved in the home page of the author (although there is no responsibility for the solutions, as these problems were solved by some students of the author, I found the quality of the solutions very good). The reference list of the book is rich, and includes a lot of relevant and interesting papers from the last decade. Most of the typos which appear in the book are reported in the home page of Sergio Verdu. The required background needed for studying the book is an undergraduate course on digital communications. However, there is no need for a backgound on information theory, as coding aspects (which are fundamental in multi-access communications) are not discussed in the book. To conclude, I found that book of Sergio Verdu very good and would recommend it for every one who wish to learn CDMA.

i have found this book to be well-written, and is an excellent book for readers interested in CDMA and wireless communications in general at all levels. Sergio Verdu has an excellent writing style, recently demonstrated in his award-winning information theory paper, and this book really shines. the only complaint is that sometimes the reference to previous equation is difficult to follow, which is a common problem with technical textbooks.

This book is so far the best I have seen for studying about CDMA. I really like the author's style and pace and it is suited for poeple at all levels. For anyone interested in CDMA/Wireless, this book is the best place to start.

This is the best (and I believe, only) book for Multiuser Communication and it is written in an excellent way. It is destined to be on the shelf of any person in Comm and is accessible to people from all levels.

This book has all the relevant information on multiuser detection,but is really hard to read .its difficult to get past the math and get a clear understanding of the concepts.A little more discussion would have helped on some of the topics where the author relies purely on complex math to get his point across.Absolutely not for people just trying to read through and get a fundamental grasp of concepts.However the exercises at the end of each chapter are really challenging and well composed.Your best(and only) bet until another book on detection is written

The book of Sergio is an excellent book and the one and only in its field. I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in Wireless and CDMA systems.

I can not believe this book received any good reviews. It is horrible. Sergio needs to learn the term, "for example". He assumes the reader is quite familiar with his notation without any explanation. I am a graduate student in electrical engineering and I am mystified by his notations. If he had just given a few explanations of his notations, this may have been a decent book.
