Reviews

From the reviews:

"Cowley’s book touches all the bases, more of them, in fact, than most similar books, and does so in a mere 230 pages, including two appendices and an index. … The chief beneficiaries of a book like this would seem to be managers and interested laymen who want a high-level overview of ‘networks’ without having to go into any detail. The work is well written and will be … interest to these groups." (G. M. White, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (2), February, 2008)
