The concept seems simple enough: make an intro-level DSP book that is simple to understand, straight to the point, and filled with examples of almost every conceivable variety.However, this textbook is easily the worst textbook I've ever used. Before I get to the bad points, let me go over the few good points first.Generally, the book is easy to understand and the concepts are presented directly. Proofs are simple and direct, and the language is straight-forward. Nearly every concept has at least one example associated with it, and each chapter includes an exhaustive treatise on applying Matlab to solving the problems in the book.Now, for bad points. This textbook is RIFE WITH ERRORS. It's ridiculous: on average I'd say there is at least one major typographical or math error. The typographical errors come at the worst possible place every time: right in the middle of a critical example. The errors cause the examples to be done WRONG. Additionally, a lot of the concepts and math in the book is just plain WRONG. For example, the section on circular convolution in Chapter 7 doesn't just include the usual typographical errors, the formula they give is as wrong as wrong can get. The example given after the wrong formula they give doesn't even follow the wrong formula, and even then they manage to do the example wrong.I don't understand how this book made it through editing with so many errors getting through. There are so many errors and so many wrong formulas, it makes the book unusable. I feel robbed of my money. If this author took my DSP class, he would have received an F. The editor, too.Furthermore, many critical concepts that you'd think would be in any intro-level DSP book, such as Fast Fourier Transforms, are missing.
