"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From the Back Cover
A high-level overview of radio design for wireless LAN systems
The Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), in both the technical and business worlds, is one of the few rising stars in the semiconductor industry. It is attracting a growing number of engineers and companies with its fairly high reliability, low cost, and high throughputs. As this trend continues, it is becoming increasingly important for both LAN system designers and circuit designers to have a solid grasp of WLAN applications to design the next generation of radios.
Wireless LAN Radios presents a sophisticated overview of the subject, covering the necessary theory while emphasizing the practical aspects of this promising technology. Coverage includes:
802.11 flavors and system requirements
Receiver and transmitter radio architectures
Analog impairments and issues
Key radio building blocks
A brief discussion of 802.11n
Wireless LAN Radios also presents a detailed explanation of analog, digital, and mixed-mode calibration techniques for improving system performance and chip yield, while the impact of radio architecture on die size, system cost, and power consumption is also thoroughly evaluated. Complete with several case studies that explore the morass of trade-offs faced in industry, this books offers a meaningful presentation of real-world issues facing designers, engineers, theorists, and researchers working in this industry. The book is also an excellent text for graduate students in the general area of wireless LAN design.
About the Author
Arya Behzad is currently a Broadcom Distinguished Engineer, where he is the Director of Engineering working on radios for current and future generation wireless products and Product Line Manager for all wireless LAN radio products. This book and his IEEE Expert Now course on wireless LAN radio design are both derived from his popular course on this topic at the IEEE ISSCC.

The major classifications of radio architectures along with their strong points and shortcomings were introduced. Potential impairments along with the impact of architecture choice on each were delineated. A brief introduction to the design of the major blocks along with the calibration techniques required to provide adequate performance was provided. Finally, some case studies were described.
After reading this book, I could delve more deeply into the literature with confidence, had a good understanding of what effects I would need to model, and was a put in a good position to ask the right questions of our RF design team.
Overall, it was very easy to read and got me started very quickly. My only gripe would be with the fairly large number of typos in the book.
