"Overall, this is an interesting book to read. It is also an important summary of the mobile IR literature. Despite its relatively short length (less than 100 pages without reference), it manages to pack in a huge amount of useful information." (Daqing He, Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, 2018)
