    Good things about this book and recommendation for improvements

    Generally, this book is a very powerful tool to understand the concept about communication technologies and their histories. The description about each technology is very detailed and well presented with a lot of nicely put examples and applications, which enables the readers to picture the technologies in their minds without really seeing the physical visualizations themselves. This book also has some aspects that could be improved, and the improvements mostly are about the language and the contents. The transitions between the sentences are really flowing however, the language or the words selection is addressed to the higher level of the readers, not all the articles could be understood in one-time-reading, maybe this is due to the fact that I am an international reader. The term ¿higher level of the readers¿ here refers to people that have knowledge in technology, know all technology (especially in communication technology) terms, or know difficult vocabularies in English. Although the authors provide this book with glossary in the end of the chapters, this matter should be more concerned because almost all articles are long, and it is very inconvenient if the readers should read them more than once while keep looking at the glossary in the back of the chapter.
