Praise for the first edition: 'Books like this one are invaluable because they provide the details and the background that allow readers to answer the questions 'what is likely to be in the final standard?' and 'how does it work?' Eldad and Robert should be congratulated on taking up the challenge.' Andrew Myles, Chairman, WiFi Alliance
This comprehensive, up-to-date overview describes the principles, implementation and enhancing features of 802.11n and 802.11ac. This updated and significantly revised 2nd edition contains new material on 802.11ac, plus chapters on 802.11ac PHY and multi-user MIMO. An ideal reference for WLAN equipment designers, network managers, and students and researchers in wireless communications.

Then I found this book.
Perahia and Stacey provide a lucid introduction to the structure of 802.11n (and ac). They focus on the improvements in the more recent "n" and "ac" amendments, but they give enough 802.11 a/b/g background to avoid leaving anyone behind. Most valuable of all, they explain the motivation behind many decisions made in the standardization process--which offers a whole new layer of insight into why 802.11 works as it does.
The book has separate sections on the physical and MAC layers, and each is self-contained. The prose is both concise and understandable, which means you don't have to set aside days of reading to get what you need. All-in-all, this is one of the most well-written technical books I have come across.
Of course, if you need to work with 802.11n on an implementation level, you'll eventually have to dive into the standards documents themselves, but if you take the time to read this book first, you'll save yourself hours of piecing together details from disparate sections (and documents) to answer what you thought was a simple question.
