    'Professor Doyle's book is an enjoyable read. This book could be used as part of graduate studies on software radios and trends in radio design. … It is rare to find the balance of practical depth and high-level vision that comes together in this book.' IEEE Microwave Magazine

    'The overall description is very intuitive … It requires no particular knowledge (or mathematical skills) to understand the notions developed in the book. This makes the book very easy to understand, and, thus, accessible to a large public. … As a practical guide on cognitive radio, this book completely fulfills its objective and is very useful for quickly entering into the domain.' Radio Science Bulletin
