So my recommendations on Amazon.com are interesting. A lot of gay fiction, a lot of techie stuff so when this one popped up I had to buy it, it was less than $5:
Pierce is yet another Bell Labs legend among the likes of Claude Shannon, Nyquist et al who are kind of integral to my I.T. career and to my interest in communication networks, from the wired to wireless.
He is one of the fathers of satellite telecommunications. Should be an interesting read.
