Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on May 23, 2003
Format: Hardcover
If I had written this book, and were holding myself out as a consultant to the mobile operator industry, I would not list it on my resume.
The content is unremarkable and rehashed; nothing is here that could not be learned in a few hours of online research. There are no unique insights here. Some suggested sites include: Wireless Week; Mobile Commerce World; RCR Wireless; Mobile Burn; the 3G Portal; the 3rd Generation Partnership Project; the UMTS Forum; and Unstrung.
Beyond the content, the presentation is terrible and the editing atrocious. Barely a page goes by without typographical or grammatical errors. It appears to have been rushed out to capture the "3G" hype.
