"For those who need to understand the warp and woof of the communications sector-where technology, economics, and politics collide-this book is required reading."-Reed E. Hundt, former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and author of You Say You Want a Revolution: A Story of Information Age Politics
"Commanding Communications is an excellent primer for anyone who wishes to understand [the] chaotic [communications] industry. Clearly, one of the important conclusions that one can draw from Bonocore's descriptions of conflicting trends and technology discontinuities is that forecasting the course of future trends is exceedingly difficult. Another is that, while scale has its advantages, every successful industry participant must be prepared to turn on a dime when the unexpected occurs. There will always be room for a fast, flexible niche player that provides excellent services and treats its customers right."-James Barr, President and Chief Executive Officer, TDS Telecommunications Corporation

A friend recommended I read this at a snail's pace, but I couldn't put it down. If you're considering moving into the telcomm space or if you just want to go along for the ride, you'll gain a perspective that will set you apart from those who think they understand the future. You'll be well prepared to think where you want to be and how you want to get there. I loved it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Bonocore has indeed successfully undertaken a difficult task of getting his arms around the extremely complicated and ever-changing communications industry. For anyone who wants a quick read on this industry - where it's come from, and where it's headed - this is definitely a must read. Frankly, I've looked for a long time, however, I haven't come across any other book that discusses the telecom industry so comprehensively and in a non-technical fashion.Was this review helpful?

I found the book very interesting and thorough in its explanation of the telecommunications industry. What sets Bonocore apart is the refreshing way in which he examines the future of the industry and its meaning to the larger business world and the way we live.Was this review helpful?

This book provides an in-depth and detailed framework of the telecommunications industry. Bonocore's vision of our future (¿the thinking network¿ and ¿the extra mile¿) is interesting. The book leads you to start thinking about how the communications industry will impact how we live.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
