Format: Paperback
As a graduate student, I've been exposed to several books on control theory and Applied Nonlinear Control may be my favorite. This book does a good job at presenting control solutions for a rich class of systems. I specifically enjoyed learning about sliding control and on-line parameter estimation for adaptive contol. At times the book is difficult to follow for it frequently refers to specific equations and theorems of previous sections, but that is unavoidable considering the nature of the topic.

As a student, I've found this book very useful in the areas of sliding control and linearization. It is easy to read and well written.

Format: Paperback
Slotine's book is less mathematical than some and many may find this refreshing, although this also removes some of the insight. For those students without a really deep mathematical background who are required or elect to take a course on nonlinear controls this is a decent starting point. When this came out, it caused somewhat of a furor as much of it is a simplication of Isidori's Nonlinear Control Systems book. This is a little less general and much more readable. However, be advised that there are misunderstandings in the book concerning sliding mode control, and the section on spacecraft attitude control has been used and abused over many years. Nothing wrong with the latter material however, it has just been "rediscovered" many times. There are also a number of mathematical mistakes in the book. Nevertheless the book is very readable and the section on Lyapunov functions is an excellent introduction.

This is a good entry point for learning non-linear control. It is at the advanced undergraduate level, and does not require an advanced background. As an applied textbook, it provides tools for analyzing non-linear system. For a more rigourous theoretical development of non-linear control theory, try Nonlinear Control Design by Marino and Patrizio.
