Reviews and Testimonials

All the applications included in the book come from the research and/or real life applications from learned academicians and practicing professionals. This is by no means a comprehensive treatise of Pervasive Computing Applications. But readers would gain a deep insight into a wide range of both conventional and unconventional applications of Pervasive Computing for Business. Serious reading of this book and contemplation will generate new ideas and new applications which, I hope, that readers would take on board for future development.
