There's nothing perfect in this world

I think so far, this is the most complete book ever. This book covers a thorough explaination for (almost) every telecommunication issue. Althogh maybe the book does not explain every updated issue or every topic in deep, I think this book is still the best (hey, there's nothing perfect in this world!). I think the author more concerned on a complete basic understanding rather than a thorough explaination in "every-every" topic. This book is, I think, perfect for every beginner and comfortable for every experiences.
Also, I think the author likes jokes and fun. This makes the book more interesting to read. From the book dimension, the price, and also the contents; this book is a "real deal" for everybody in telecommunication industry.

really confusing

the book is very confusing, the author jumps around without any coherent order
electronics is learned by cumulative knowledge , builing knowledge on top of base knowledge/principles, and more knowledge on top of that
but the way this book goes, you have to learn it all separately, and then waste your time trying to put it all together into a coherent whole
problems are useless too
