Page 48: RFID tags are now typically 96 bits.

Pages 48 reads:

Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an emerging subset of wireless technology. RFID devices are known as tags, as they "tag" an object or person with a small device containing a large binary number, typically 48 bits or 2.8 1014 different numbers.

The "48 bits" was correct when the initial RFID section was written. Today EPCGlobal has set the standard to be 96 bits or 7.9 x 1028 for the simple tags. More complex tags, especially "Active Tags" can store several thousand kilobytes of data.
