Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Christian Paetz was born in Chemnitz/East Germany in 1966. He attended a vocational training in electronics before studying Information Technology at the Universities of Dresden and Chemnitz. He received his Masters Degree in 1993 and his Doctors Degree in 1998.After leaving academics in 2000 he founded the company Peppercon AG, awarded as the best startup company in Saxony in that year. With the acquisition of Peppercon by Raritan Inc. New Jersey/USA Christian served the new mother company for several years in different international management positions. In 2012 he was appointed as Professor for Systems Reliability at Chemnitz University. Beside his scientific work he is publishing on different topics in the field of engineering, economics and entrepreneurship, holds 7 patents, serves as board member of several companies and as European speaker of the Z-Wave Alliance.
I would have given it a five star rating if it had less errors (spelling, references, table sub lines, etc) and would have handled/explained some technicalities in a way more accessible to novice users. E.g. One has to be fairly technical to understand "In a conductive load the capacitive reactance exceeds the inductive reactance. Hence the load draws a leading current."
The book covers everything you need to know, the z-wave basics, how to build a reliable network, to side information like how dimmers work and how to handle those in your home automation setup.
However it is let down by extremely poor grammar. It has several grammatical mistakes on every single page which is hugely distracting. It could easily have been reviewed and corrected by a native English speaker for very little effort. I can't believe that is it published in the state that it is.

It appears this book was translated from German. A few tables and illustrations didn't get translated but I had no problem as a result. There are a few minor issues with the translation (primarily confusion between "then" and "than") but they are rare and don't affect the readability of the book.
The grammar is the worst feature. It is so bad as to be very distracting to the native English reader.
On the technical side it is aimed at developers more than installers or end users of Z Wave technology.it is very general in its descriptions and does not offer much information for the typical installer.
