About the author (2011)

Described as both "an entertainer and an expert in his field" of telecommunications, Harry Newton has won praise for his informative and easy-to-understand books. Newton's most popular and best-known work is Newton's Telecom Dictionary (4th ed. 1998). Besides defining a multitude of telecommunications terms, it explains how they work and are used, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of using each. It also covers industry jargon, acronyms, company names, products and major individuals in the field. Because telecommunications technology and terminology are both continually changing Newton strives to update the dictionary every six months. Among Newton's other books are Which Phone System Should I Buy? (1989), One Hundred One Money-Saving Secrets Your Phone Company Won't Tell You (1983) and Professional Management Via Telecommunications (1980). Newton, who holds an M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School, is also editor-in-chief of three monthly magazines, Computer Telephony, Teleconnect, and Call Center, and a highly popular speaker.
