"... very comprehensive. Each chapter has a strong theoretical foundation. Working on those foundations, the authors provide detailed descriptions and practical examples of a range of power amplifier types. The chapter references are also extensive. ... This book is a strong contender to become a standard text for advanced students as well as practicing engineers. ... certainly recommended as an addition to serious RF and microwave power amplifier designers and practitioners." -Raymond Pengelly, Founder/Owner of Prism Consulting NC, LLC, Hillsborough, North Carolina, USA
