I would normally rate such a book as five stars, but I've given it four stars to draw some attention that this book is not so easily comprehended as two preceding reviewers suggest. Indeed, the book is well written and organized. However, I think the level of mathematics used is that of advanced calculus. I believe this book is intended for a senior EE or EE graduate student. However, it is not all mathematics and there is still much to be learned about antennas from the book without having had exposure to some of the mathematics used. If you are in doubt, you might consider an alternative before purchasing this book, or at least purchase it with the thought of returning it within a 30 day inspection period.

This book covers all the basics of antenna theory; including radiation mechanisms, antenna parameters, and theory of fundamental elements such as dipoles, loops, slots, helicals, and arrays. The material is presented logically in an easy-to-read format which allows the reader to understand and apply the design concepts to antenna problems of today. A 'must-have' text for the RF or Antenna Design Engineer.

From fundamental antenna concepts to the characteristics and design curves for all sorts of practical antennas, this book is a must have for anyone having anything to do with antennas. It is clearly written, contains excellent diagrams, interesting photographs of historical significance, and the author's personal account of his discoveries and contributions to this field.

I found this book to be very helpful and to the point on mostof the material. I thought the math, when given, was quitestraightforward, and the author was sure to explain the actual meaning of the math in quick to understand terms. I have only had this book for two days, and have already been able to walk away with a good bit of knowledge END
