Review:

"The trade magazine list is superb and will help anyone who is just beginning to delve into multimedia find sources of current information....the glossary definitions are written with cross-references for easy understanding, and the writing here is much crisper than in the introduction....The text is comprehensive amd thorough. Anyone interested in understanding the emerging field of multimedia will find this book to be a great help."-Technical Communication

"An excellent resource for all libraries."-CHOICE

..."this modestly-priced book is a must."-European Science Editing

..."a welcome ally in one's attempts to master this exciting frontier technology."-The Hindu

"Written for the layperson, the definitions are easily understood, and provide fascinating detail."-Book Reviews

"Professionals who find they constantly need "just the right term" to describe some aspect of technolgy will benefit from this volume. Recommended."-Book Report

"This resource will be invaluable to those folks who are trying to put a glossary into their technology plans, as well as to students of multimedia. This is a very worthwhile resource for all school libraries. Highly recommended."-Technology Connection

"Do the words access time, feature extraction or batch processing mean anything to you? They belong to a bewildering new language of multimedia technology words and phrases....Here's a book that explains in layman terms what all the new words mean."-FWR

"This dictionary is geared toward the practitioner and serves its purpose well. Oftentimes, books about technology are dated the minute they are published, but the authors' style of writing keeps the material fresh. This book is recommended for academic and large public libraries."-ARBA

"Overall, this book is a great set of working definitions for anyone in the field of multimedia and the Web. For those trying to work for the first time with people in these fields, this is an essential guide to understanding the language of these new professionals."-The Australian Library Journal
