The Barnes & Noble Review
For several years, the last version of Tom Sheldon's Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications has held a prominent place on our bookshelf. (And on our PC: the book comes with a fully-searchable CD-ROM we actually use). But you know how things are in telecom: every day, there are new terms and acronyms to keep up with. So it's a pleasure to tell you that Sheldon has just delivered a comprehensive update.

What do we love about this new Third Edition? The clarity. These definitions are utterly unambiguous. The depth. Sheldon tells you enough to take the next step (whether it's participating in a meeting or planning a purchase). The breadth. There are well over 1,400 definitions here. The extra resources. Sheldon's Linktionary includes hundreds of links to the Web's best sites on many of the topics he covers. The future. Nobody can predict it, but Sheldon's worked hard to include terms that are just starting to generate buzz -- terms like Active Networks (the next step beyond IPv6). Bottom line: With this book (and CD) around, it's a heckuva lot easier to look like you know what you're talking about!(Bill Camarda)
