Comments by the Reviewers

"The material is nicely presented and was a pleasure to read. I believe you have achieved your objective of making the material understandable to even those having a very modest level of mathematical sophistication, which should make this a very popular work."

Vernon L. Chi
Director, Microelectronic Systems Laboratory, University of North Carolina

"In general, I found the style of writing most refreshing. It was a pleasure to read 'how to do DSP' without having to wade through all of the derivations and statistical analysis. I believe the majority of students will feel the same. The narratives relating to techniques and pitfalls were particularly insightful. I have not seen this in a DSP text."

Jay L. Smith
Director, Center for Aerospace technology, Weber State University

"Thank you for allowing me to review a portion of your manuscript. I think that the project is an excellent idea--- scientists and engineers of all disciplines need to understand practical digital signal processing concepts, and this book provides an excellent overview of the important topics. I also like the idea of emphasizing the concepts and their implementations rather than the mathematics; this will make the text appealing to a wide variety of students and professionals."

Richard R. Schultz
Assistant Professor, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, University of North Dakota

"I am very impressed with the quality of the manuscript and I endorse your general approach to presenting the material to students with a variety of backgrounds."

Professor of Geology, Northern Arizona University

"Yours is an interesting approach ...", "... the style is very pleasing, and makes for an enjoyable reading. The book has rhythm and is easily followed. I must admit that occasionally I would have welcomed some further mathematics that could have enlightened your descriptions, but I understand that this was not one of your major goals. I share with you the notion that the best DSP teaching strategy is not necessarily a-la-Oppenheim, and that the development of intuition is essential in making DSP an accessible subject."

"In general, I find this book very well written and informative, and I will recommend it to my future students as a beginner-level text. Congratulations for a job well done, and thank you for giving me a chance to review it."

M. Das
Associate Professor, Electrical and Systems Engineering, Oakland University

"This is very good, reads well and is instructive." "The figures in your book are an especially strong point; again and again I found that the figures supported and illustrated (and sometimes expanded upon) the text in a very useful way. If I were offering a DSP course in 1998, I would definitely consider your text for adoption. It a good piece of work!"
