"...a concise desktop reference useful for the expert as well as for the merely curious...The flow of the discussion allows the two broad categories of readers, the generalists and the specialists in RFID, to have their respective concerns covered appropriately without causing a disconnect within the explanation...definitely recommended for anybody seriously looking to design, build or integrate with RFID systems, with or without prior exposure to this fascinating technology."

"Although I was searching for a more lay introduction to RFID when I found this book, I am forced to acknowledge that the knowledge you gain in RFID Essentials will kick start a business’ effort to allow RFID to become part of their business tools and practices. It also supports specifying needs, conceptually designing, developing a plan for building, or ?for integrating their business with RFID systems."
-- Harry Babad, MacCompanion

"What I walked away with was not only a high level understanding of the technical aspects of RFID, but also an excellent discussion of the compliance, governance, privacy and security issues that surround its expanded growth and use. If there is a title that truly matches its content, this would be it. "
-- Christopher Byrne, The Business Controls Caddy

"RFID Essentials offers a no-nonsense introduction to the industrial application of radio frequency identification technology and its data standards. RFID Essentials gives Wikipedia more than a good run for the money."
-- Neil McNaughton, Oil IT Journal

"Perhaps the single most complete book on the subject of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)."
--Michael Kleper, The Kleper Report on Digital Publishing, March 2006

"Bill Glover and Himanshu Bhatt have written a perfectly well-ordered discussion of an RFID system…. The book is geared to the project manager with some technical background. While it doesn't shy away from discussions of algorithms and protocols, it also doesn't provide details about implementation. It's the kind of book an informed manager wants, in order to be able to ask intelligent questions of his staff."
--Joshua Scharf, Blogcritics.org, March 2006

"Bill and Himanshu have put together a true tour de force of RFID technologies. The breadth and depth of their coverage of this emerging space will leave few wanting. Presented in an accessible yet technically relentless manner, the authors expose the merely curious to more than they bargained for and surprise even the most hardened RFID expert with new insights and understandings. This is a must read for RFID software and solution architects, and is highly recommended for anyone who needs to gain insight into the myriad of components, standards, and technologies that make up an RFID solutions environment."
