This book is tremendously vague. It is fairly thick, but in all its pages it never really manages to tell you anything you probably didn't already know. Everything is at such a high level it is more like a broad overview of the subject. It is practically devoid of any mathematical details of DSP. Given its title, that is probably not what the reader was bargaining for. There are better books on DSP, better books on embedded systems, and better books on real-time systems. What about better books that integrate all three subjects? I can't think of any, but that would include this book too. If you want an introduction to DSP and interfacing it to a microprocessor try "Digital Signal Processing and the Microcontroller". It talks about the basics of DSP, uses a little math but not calculus, and demonstrates how to build a DSP system using a M68HC16 16-bit microcontroller. Code examples are included. You'll then be ready for more mathematical treatments of DSP in other books. In summary, don't waste your money on this one.
I bought this book for work, hoping that my department would find it useful to lend to new grads. After reading it, I determined that there is nothing here a new grad couldn't get more authoritatively from a TI manual or his own textbooks. I am out the cost of the book, because I am not going to submit it for reimbursement. By the way, I bought this book on the force of a review in one of those e-mail e-magazines for engineers. I have thus lost all faith in that process.
The Book offers a simple yet complete explanation of DSP techniques also includes a demo of a software to start designing with DSP'S
