Review quote

"Although the author offers a good deal of information about the GPS system and its uses, the treatment is rather choppy and not particularly well integrated. The level of detail also varies considerably. Just about everything a reader might want to know is here, but it might take a lot of work to put the pieces together." --MAA Reviews
