"Amazon.com Reader Reviews for Bedell's Cellular/PCS Management Best book I've found on topic! Fact filled and easy to read; Reviewer: Robert Jucovics from USA (May 19, 1999) This book is great for gaining a complete understanding of the different components needed for a wireless carrier system and how they work. This book is written in plain English which makes it easy to read and understand many complex topics. I have been working in the cellular/wireless industry for 3 years now and had to learn about the industry the hard way, old out of date books on this topic and none covered the entire wireless carrier system like this book. This book covers topics from communication towers and antennas to Call Processing and Cellular Fraud. As a professional going back to graduate school I appreciate the fact filled information, no fluff, to the point, and not geared toward an Engineer. Trust me when I say this is the book to start with to gain insight into the working of a wireless carrier system, I have done research on this topic for work and graduate school and haven't found any book as informative and useful as this one covering Cellular/PCS Communication Systems.; A must read if you are interested in wireles communications (June 3, 1999) Reviewer: a reader from Chicago, IL This book is great for both the wireless communications novice and experienced personnel. It offers insightful information in a quick and summarized format. A great high-level overview of the wireless industry as a whole. If you are looking for wireless information, but don't want to get bogged down in all the minute details, this is the book for you.From the Publisher:
