This book is a good introduction to control systems, suitable for the undergraduate level. It covers everything from LaPlace transforms of physical systems to state feedback and PLC. It also contains several chapters on nonlinear phenomena and their analysis tools. Presentation of the material is very understandable with many formulas and equations. Examples abound, and many practical applications are presented. Basic Matlab coding for control systems is integrated, and several problems refer to Matlab. The major drawback is that this book does not cover digital control. Overall this book is a good introductory reference for classical control.
