Hi. I am active duty in the USAF, and work in communications and I can confidently say that telecommunications, by Marion Cole, is by far the best book on the subject that I've come accross. The book is very well organized and the content covers everything that one who deals with telecommunications would need. From the history of telecommunications to late breaking technologies. This book covers every aspect of analog and digital technology, from the simple telphone, to multiplexing phone and data lines over fiber using Wave Division Multiplexing. I personally recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn the technology or just to brush up on their skills. This book is a number one choice!

A very informative reference. I have found myself sharing this with those outside and inside the industry who have been able to read this and better understand the technology and its very profound evolution and impact to our society. I was fortunate enough to have had the author as an instructor. We were the first class to have the published version taught to us and those who had already had the course rushed to purchase it when it was released due to the very nature of both the teacher and the content of the book. Thank you Professor Cole and I am very much looking forward to your next publication.

This book helped me a lot to sum up all the different technologies that are today available in the telecom industry. Of course I heard of lots of them during my studies but we can't see all of them and in a such exhaustive manner as the author did. I especially learned a lot with the first part as deregulation is a very new issue in France.

This book covers many topics in telecommunications in an easy to understand format. It is written by someone who knows the industry, because he has lived it. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has a desire to understand the details of how various telephone technologies work.
