However, in many times the author explained things too wordy. Those wordy explaination could somewhat derail some readers. I sometimes skip some topics to read the next, but then I have to come back to get better understanding. I wish that the author could illustrate more his explanation. Giving more pictures and tables I think would increase the reader's understanding. But anyway, this is a good book and should be owned by anybody who need "the next step" out of ordinary telephony understanding.
For beginners, the author really provided way too much detail. His writing style is very bland. In order to understand the dense material, you have to follow the words very carefully, and then you probably would doze off. Like the other reviewer, I find the density of material counterproductive and impenetrable.
