Bluetooth Applications Developer's Guide May 21, 2003
This book contains an introductory overview of Bluetooth, followed by an assortment Bluetooth topics. It was written by 3 (or 4) different authors and it looks it. It is hardly a well thought out, comprehensive approach to Bluetooth applications development nor is it an applications guide as its title suggests. Prior to reading this book I read "Bluetooth 1.1 Connect Without cables" and many other Bluetooth articles and papers. I was looking for a book that would pull all the information together into a useful concise applications guide. This book does NOT accomplish that.
Too basic for developers Aug 10, 2002
As a Bluetooth baseband and applications developer, I found this book too basic to make much use out of. The only thing that I found useful is that they give some performance numbers here and there. My advice to you is to borrow this book for a quick thumb through and throw it away. The other Bluetooth book by Jennifer Bray, Bluetooth connect without cable, is even worse. You might as well read the spec itself, which is more precise and informative.
A comperehensive reference book Feb 8, 2002
This book covers Bluetooth application development for a variety of development environments. Many expected technical problems and provisioned and guidelined for right handling are given. The format is handy and the vast usage of FAQs and Solutions' Fast Tracks improves the pactical usage of it. The 1 year upgrade buyer protection plan should ensure that buying the 1st edition isn't too early. Though Bluetooth introduction chapters are provided, the usage of some good Bluetooth description book like Jenifer Bray and Charles Sturman's Bluetooth: Connect without Cables is suggested.
