Title: Single Sourcing : Building Modular Documentation
Publisher: Noyes Publications
Authors: Kurt Ament
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
not what I expected

This book is a style guide, with guidance like, "When introducing small sections that contain subsections, use itemized lists rather than sentences"; "Begin optional steps with a clear visual and verbal indication that they are not mandatory"; and "When listing commands, follow the capitalization rules on which your product is based." The beginning and end of the book provide a shallow discussion of single sourcing, but much of the book is style guidance like this. Maybe I'm missing something, but what does that have to do with single sourcing? I sure don't understand these 5-star reviews and encourage you to flip through the pages of this book before buying so you know what you're getting.

Check out - a great Interconnect book is finally here

This book is the most comprehensive book I have seen in the area of system bus design. It focuses largely on signal integrity issues that must be solved in modern high speed designs. It includes much practical information that can be directly applied to design, as well as a sufficient amount of theory so that the the reader can understand the fundamental issues assosiated with high speed signal propagation. It also covers topics not included inother texts, such as high speed measuremet techniques, design methodology and EMI. It is highly understandable and well organized.
