After working in the computer industry for years I
thought I was accustomed to jargon and acronyms, then
we started making computers for telecom companies and
working with them. Phone companies have an 80yr
head start on creating their own gobbldygook and this
book was a great help in deciphering it all, ok most
of it.

Ironically, a valuable tool for librarians. As the library field becomes more technological, it helps to know and understand the lingo. Newton's covers everything from "microwave oven" (with a bit of whimsy in the definition) to "spaghetti code". Useful and snarky- my kind of reference tool.

This book is a must-have for anyone who has anything to do with voice, and if you're in networking, you should get this, because of the popularity of convergence.
Jay
Harry is irreverent as ever. A fun break from the usual staid textbook approach to technology, but more helpful than the Dummies series.
Tara Thue
This has endlessly helped me at work. Plus, the author inserts humor into bland tech-talk and definitions.
Ray Horak
Too much nonsense in this book. It should be filed in the fictional humor stacks.
Fred
I was quite bored. Reading the phone book is more titillating.
