Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you're involved with telecommunications in any way, you're handicapping yourself if you don't have a copy of Newton's Telecom Dictionary. Author Harry Newton has been a legend in the telecom industry since long before telecom became trendy. He calls the shots as he sees 'em. So does his dictionary. Very personal. Always opinionated. ("Backhoe Fade: Signal loss caused by some moron who forgot to call before he dug.") Occasionally funny. Always invaluable.

Unlike some dictionaries, Newton doesn't assume you know the backstory. He explains from the very beginning, making his book a wondrous resource for folks without engineering degrees (sales/marketing/PR types, managers, customers, and so forth).

Also unlike other dictionaries, this one's enormously comprehensive. Over 30,000 entries. That's 9,000 more than the previous 17th edition -- so there's plenty of room for the latest new wireless and high-speed stuff. It's also several times as many entries as its leading competitors. Even after you subtract the occasional insanely off-topic entries that'll still teach you something worth knowing ("Fire: To discharge someone. In Scotland during medieval times, if your clan wanted to get ride of you, but not kill you, they would set fire to your house..."). (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. He served for nearly ten years as vice president of a New Jersey┬ľbased marketing company, where he supervised a wide range of graphics and web design projects. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies┬«, Second Edition.
