    A reviewer

    The communication technology always changes rapidly over the year.Communication Technology Update is a well-written book that can gives us the latest information in all areas of telecommunication. This book is also designed to provide explanations for a number of new communication technologies. Divided into five sections and twenty-six chapters, its author, Dr. August E.Grant and Jennifer H.Meadows give us a good comprehensive explanation and analysis of communication technology nowadays. In the first section, we are introduced by the umbrella perspective on communication technology, timelines. In section II until IV, this book gives us a depth explanation about electronic mass media, computers & consumer electronics and even telephone & satellite. The conclusion in section V provides us a better understanding of media convergence and emerging new technologies that has dramatically reshaped the traditional media. This book is very useful for professionals and students, including students majoring in communications like me. For me, this book is a valuable source in order to understand how technology of information grows so fast and has become important part of our lives. Without a doubt, this is a really good book you must have!
