Pozar's new edition of Microwave Engineering includes more material on active circuits, noise, nonlinear effects, and wireless systems. Chapters on noise and nonlinear distortion, and active devices have been added along with the coverage of noise and more material on intermodulation distortion and related nonlinear effects. On active devices, there's more updated material on bipolar junction and field effect transistors.
New and updated material on wireless communications systems, including link budget, link margin, digital modulation methods, and bit error rates is also part of the new edition. Other new material includes a section on transients on transmission lines, the theory of power waves, a discussion of higher order modes and frequency effects for microstrip line, and a discussion of how to determine unloaded.

Best Text for Truly Understanding Microwave Engineering
By Dr. Terrence McGarty
This is a fantastic book. Wish I had it 50 years ago! The material is vast and considered all parts of microwave design from transmission, to antennas, to devices, to system elements. I would argue that this is a must have for anyone in microwave engineering. The author has done a superb job in presenting the material without taking the reader down the path of theoretic drivel. This is a classic in engineering presentation. It balances theory with application and is as current as any text of this type can be.

By Electrical Engineer
This book manages to give an encyclopedic overview of microwave engineering but wrote in an easy to read almost novel formate. I found myself excited to most to the next chapter and not being able to put it down. Pozar covers all of the important into topics with passive engineering and even makes it into active and nonlinear microwave engineering. Provided me with a very solid foundation for advance books and courses in microwave engineering.

Excellent introductory and intermediate book on mw engineering for undergrads
By Iban Barrutia
Wealthy material, thorough subject treatment for this classic. Not sure if worthy to pay if you already own 3ed...
Excellent introductory and intermediate book on mw engineering for undergrads, grads and engineers (i myself use it regularly for designs). One suggestion: Though may not be pertinent, introductory (or in depth) material on simulation methods, ports, deembeding, calibrations and so on( Jim Rautio and other guys from AWR, HFSS, CST, FEKO...) would be welcome, as i usually switch back and forth between their ANs or documents and this book when designing high freq structures... All in all a good acquisition for any serious person in the uw world.
