A very well written, fast-paced, and captivating read about how a regulated scarce asset (spectrum) was captured by smart entrepreneurs. The author, Jim Murray, had a rare inside track as a participant in the industry. He maintains the reader's interest by describing (and perhaps, creating) larger-than-life & memorable characters.
