    Reviews & endorsements

    'Wonderfully enlightening … conceived by some of the pioneers of back-scattering aided communications (and) offers a gracefully evolving story-line by bridging the challenging aspects of cutting-edge theory and practical circuit design, paving the way for 'always-on' wireless systems.' Lajos Hanzo, University of Southampton

    'The text is well written, and abundant graphs, diagrams, and tables explain a variety of approaches to ambient backscatter techniques and provide plentiful references to the literature. The book will be an essential resource for anyone interested in this method of implementing IoT technology, which may be expected to grow more important in the future … Highly recommended.' K. D. Stephan, Choice
