Taniar's two-volume encyclopedia, providing thorough essays on the current trends, technologies, applications, and concepts of mobile computing and commerce, is one of a kind. It is a worthwhile resource to consult when learning the basics of mobile technologies and how businesses use them. Essays are written by hundreds of worldwide scholars and researchers. They cover all aspects of mobile computing, such as mobile consumer applications, information systems, technologies, multimedia, security, and education. Some of the most leading and noteworthy entries include mobile gaming, next-generation mobile technologies, mobile phones for people with disabilities, and mobile health care communication. Most entries are written using technical language that would be best understood by college majors, faculty, and specialists in the fields of computer science and engineering. Essays also include a highly useful and more extensive list of references than other encyclopedias, as well as a section devoted to key terms (with definitions) used throughout the essays. More suited for academic libraries, it is still a useful source for public libraries. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels. K. J. Gust Michigan State University
