"The time for this book is now. Innovations such as mobile music and mobile TV are driving our industry, but success ultimately comes down to customers. This book is unique in its in-depth study of customers and their need for mobile services."

Santie Botha, Group Marketing Director, MTN Group

"Turning mobile services into revenue requires a broad understanding of both business and technical aspects. I am very impressed with how this book explains unique technical challenges while still covering a broad range of commercial topics."

Erik Ott, Partner, Rainmaker Capital San Francisco

"The mobile media world is full of promise and expectation. While mobile media theories abound, here finally is a book that moves beyond the theoretical into the practical. It's a sharing of real-life experiences that can help companies use the mobile channel to offer the best product possible to their customers and audiences. Even media companies with a great deal of experience in the mobile space will benefit from this thorough and practical approach."

Roma Khanna, Senior Vice President, Content, CHUM Television
