Her reading style

Just remember that when this author wants to emphasize something (which is all the time) she ends her sentences... like... this...

After a few hours it drives... me... crazy...

Fair read, lots of hype

This was an okay read, though filled with as much hype as actual technical data. The author plows through case-study after case-study of wireless success-stories for how businesses saved/made/created money by going wireless, while glossing over some obvious issues (such as security, lack of common standards, etc) which have kept the wireless boom from actually happening. Echoing the comments of a previous reviewer, much of time the author seems like a cheerleader, rather than an actual presenter of facts. I would have preferred a more even-handed approach to the subject.
