Excellent, highly recommended

An excellent book that I'm repeatedly recommending to people with an interest in the subject. The explainations of the various problems that are encountered and a full look at the technologies used are worth having all on their own however they really just act as a basis so that you have a good point of reference for the last part of the book, the interviews. I found that the interviews with a large variety of top guys who are working with a huge variety of material and styles gave you a really good idea of what can be achieved and what can be tried.
Nobody is going to write a book telling you exactly how to master and reading these interviews makes you realise why, each guy has a different approach and gets different results. One of the best reads on the subject I've seen.

Timely Book

This is a very timely book for those in the wireless communication industry involved in the design and testing of cdma2000 1x and 1xEV-DV products (chips, handsets, base stations).
It not only covers cdma2000 1x at a level of detail that is not available in other books on cdma2000, but also goes into the details of 1x EV-DV, which is currently being designed by various companies worldwide.
In particular, the chapters on Layer 2 and 3 protocol, power control, handoff, and packet data operation cover material not available in other textbooks. The authors also explain the reasoning behind design choices in cdma2000/1xEV-DV, which I found helpful.
Compared with Lee and Miller's "CDMA System Engineering Handbook", this textbook covers a broader scope of material, but with a less analytical approach. Overall, highly recommend this textbook. I found it to be the best and most accurate one dealing with the practical issues of cdma2000 and 1xEV-DV.
