The bulk of the book lies in exploring innovative uses of handheld technologies in museums, technology that is designed to address some of the tensions and challenges described in the introductory chapters. Given this diversity, one wonders whether handheld technology in the museum is a natural category. This book makes an important and timely contribution to the field of museum studies. For museum practitioners, it provides a useful reference work on the application of digital interpretive technologies.

The book wisely ends on a cautionary note: to be successful in the longer term 'new museum media always need to harmonize with existing practice.
