Review by Choice Review

Understanding Information Transmission is a concise but excellent book, and authors Anderson and Johannesson (both, Lund Univ., Sweden) are both well known and respected experts in the communications field. Introducing readers to information technology, the book's seven chapters span the field: introduction and some history, mathematical methods in information transmission, information sources (text, speech, music, images, and video), transmission methods, information theory and coding, cryptology, and communication networks. Other features include problem sets, chapter summaries, suggested readings, and review appendixes. The book could serve as a course resource for undergraduate students and general readers who want to learn more about this field. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. All levels. C.
