Chapter 1 of our book, Bluetooth Revealed, also offers a reader's guide to the remainder of that book, which isn't reproduced here. There are 16 other chapters in the main body of the book. Part 1, introduced with Chapter 1, which is excerpted here, is an introduction to the technology and what it can do. Parts 2 and 3 examine the specification (first the core specification and then the profile specification) in detail; Part 4 looks forward to the future of the technology, including upcoming specification enhancements.
In writing Bluetooth Revealed, Chatschik Bisdikian and I believed that an authoritative discussion of the technology in easy-to-understand terms would be appreciated by many readers. That is what we did our best to develop, and the portion of the introductory chapter reprinted here gives a glimpse into the book.
