"Unusually for a reference book, the style and presentation of the different contributors have been very ably subsumed into an eminently readable work which could have eminated from a single author." CTE

"It was a delight to discover that the primary concepts and terms used freely within the industry are described in an easily digestible manner...It's to Joe Tozer's credit, as editor, that the book has a real flow to it, despite the diversity of contributers...This book would be a major asset to the "office library" of any engineer at the beginning of his career as well as an excellent source of reference for future systems for those who need to keep up with current trends and technologies. It is both contemporary and authoritative." - The Channel

"There are no apologies for telling you about this massive tome nearly three years after it appeared - it is one of those totally comprehensive guides to highly specialised fields that are indispensable for the specialists concerned" - British Journal of Educational Technology
