About this edition:
"This is the biggest update of any edition. I don’t know why this happened. It just did. We spent months updating, adding, rewriting – the longest we’ve ever spent. As we saw the improvements we were making and the results we were getting, we got inspired to work even harder. And bingo – the biggest update, the biggest improvement and largest dictionary we’ve ever produced.
Many readers like to flip through the dictionary finding fun entries like the story of Captain Crunch or William G. McGowan’s biography. There are hundreds of rewards to skimming.
Many readers like to find our opinions of new or old technology – whether it’s worth buying or skipping. The dictionary’s authors weave their own opinions on many technologies, based on their own rigorous testing and years of experience.
And many readers claim they get their 'investment' in the dictionary paid off immediately by grabbing one or two of the 696 Money Saving Tips – which cover everything from telecom to hotels, from wireless to airlines. The authors figure you can easily pay off the dictionary hundred-fold with the tips.
This is not a dictionary that simply defines words or terms. It explains the terms in words anyone can understand. And it explains their usefulness, or not. And it tries to relate them to other terms.
The price of the dictionary has not changed, despite all the improvements." Harry Newton
This is a very extensive dictionary that is a must have for anyone in telecom. Further, it is written by someone who is trying to communicate the information you need to really understand the word or acronym.
It also has some entertaining telecommunications history. For example see the entries under "capacity swaps" and "Captain Crunch" which are on our sample page from an earlier edition.
This dictionary is an enjoyable read and a good reference that demystifies the topics covered.
"I needed this book for my new promotion, they did not have it in at the time I contacted them, it was just released, BUT they stayed in touch with me everyday until they got it in and shipped it out to me that same day. I was very impressed and will purchase the next edition of this necessary Telecom Dictionary from them as soon as I know it is available. Very caring merchant. Excellent price and no shipping costs with the purchase of 2 of these invaluable books. [Current policy: You have to order over $100 for free shipping.] Thanks eLearn Aid."
