I got this book for a class. The content was good, and it fit the class well, but the binding ripped apart about halfway through the book. It originally cracked about a few weeks into the course, and a few months later has split entirely. I now have two halves of a book and pages are falling out.
This book will maybe last if I handle it with care. It is a brand new book and I can see that pages in the middle are coming loose from the binding. It would help to have some prior knowledge of DSP - they don't get into all of the theory here. However, this is an EXCELLENT book for learning to do practical things with DSP once you understand the theory. Highly recommended content, but I don't know if you want to take a chance on the binding, which by looking at the other reviews, has been a problem for just about everybody.
I judge a book by my ability to learn the theory using only it as a resource. This one fails. I see attempts at good teaching practices - sorting problems by difficulty, using examples, etc., but the "tutorial" problems, the easiest ones, are a step beyond the examples in the book already. In other words, you can't check your understanding by reading an example and doing a quick problem, because you need to know it that well already and the examples aren't that great. For that matter, you can't run a quick problem and check anyway, since there are no selected answers provided. The equations are all numbered, not just the important ones, so it's hard to sort through and find the critical pieces of theory. If you know the theory and/or have a good teacher, this book can be a good supplement, and has good information on Matlab, but if you are learning for the first time, look somewhere else.Also, the binding is bad and it does fall apart.
Book has a binding problem. I returned it. Pages were coming off within days of buying it.
It`s a great title on DSP area. First DSP book I have used, with good theory, but not too much that would make it hard.The MATLAB applications are great for learning and the exercises are great.
