    Look elsewhere

    This book looks promising but the editors were apparently asleep at the wheel. The overall topic coverage is okay. The main problems stem from two things. 1 - the book was obviously written by multiple authors because several chapters cover the same thing over and over. A significant portion of the book turns out to be the same information covered in different chapters. 2 - The typos and missing information pieces are terrible. For instance, chapter three has a table covering the 802.11 standards and just cuts off in the middle of the table; the last several entries are not included. Several chapters reverse 802.11a and 802.11b - often in the same chapter. Save yourself some money and pick up one of the other books such as O'Reilly's on the topic.
