Synopsis: In "The VNA Applications Handbook", the capabilities and limitations of modern VNA in the context of challenging real-world applications are explained, as well as insights for optimizing test setups and instrument settings, making accurate measurements and, equally important, avoiding costly mistakes.

Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented by two prominent experts in the field, Gregory Bonaguide (Senior Applications Engineer at Rohde & Schwarts specializing in spectrum analyzers and vector network analyzers) and Neil Jarvis (Applications Engineer at Rhode & Schwartz), "The VNA Applications Handbook" is authoritative new resource that provides guidelines for performing a wide variety of Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) measurements. While unreservedly recommended as a college and university curriculum textbook, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, academia, and technicians that "The VNA Applications Handbook" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $132.65).
