RFID info for you or your company Jun 14, 2006
I found the organization of information just right for anyone looking to get a good foundation and practical information about the emerging RFID technology. The introduction was well done and easy to understand from a layman's view. The authors provided a clear and accurate overview of where the technology started, moved to, and is positioning for in the future. The examples used and the case studies provided, all combined to whet the reader's appetite for more information about RFID. The easy reading style, and the balance of ideas, make this not a technical book that turns off the non-technical person but one that encourages further exploration. If you are looking at a career in RFID technology or getting your company positioned to take advantage of the potential of the technology, start with this book.
Solid overview of RFID technology. Mar 20, 2006
As a systems integration architect I see RFID playing an ever-increasing role in data capture and information management. However it has been difficult to find objective, fact based, information on RFID. Most books that deal with the subject, focus solely on the physics. This book provided me with a good broad overview of where and how RFID is being used, the challenges as well as the opportunities involved in deployment and the various issues involved in adoption of RFID for a business. I would highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a good understanding of the business value of RFID.
