ATM, 3rd ed.", Prentice Hall, 1995. Excellent in-depth
technical descriptions of the ISDN standard
- Gerald L. Hopkins, "The ISDN Literacy Book", Addison Wesley,
1995. Great for history,
politics, and a light but very well done technical description of ISDN. Brings to light many of the
general issues relating to the success and failure of ISDN.
- Hermann J. Helgert, "Integrated Services Digital Networks -
Architectures/Protocols/Standards", Addison Wesley, 1991.
Good detailed technical description of ISDN, somewhat more detailed than

for computer networking, telecommunications, etc.
- David Angell, "ISDN for Dummies", IDG Books Worldwide,
1995. Completely consumer oriented, contains much information that
other sources ignore, but completely glosses over most details of the
ISDN architecture. Includes instructions for setting up several common
ISDN devices, which is useful but will soon be out of date.
- Dan Kegel's ISDN Page - This is basically the center of the ISDN web, mentioned most commonly as a
good place to start.
