5.0 out of 5 stars Too Bad it's Not Thicker Nov. 27 2013
By William F. Nappi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although much appears to be AND is outdated, A LOT of the more basic definitions apply to the technologies in use today. SOME terms are antiquated, some are obsolete BUT many, many are not. Well written too.

This book is very good for those starting out. Sometimes I do not understand computer terminology since I'm a product of the 50s. This defines every thing in a simple language.
