Format: Hardcover
This book is a thin hardback, and presents digital signal encoding for error detection and correction the best of any book I've ever seen. If you're in digital communications, it's a must (if you can find it...)

Format: Hardcover
Unlike all other coding theory books I've seen, this book has a tilt towards the problem of coding at the hardware level.

For instance, it discusses how normal text can be converted into equally-probable string of a certain fixed length.

However, of the vast field of error-correcting codes, this book covers just Hamming codes. In general, it is thin on mathematical details and some of the explanations are poor. For instance, Gray codes are never defined, but rather prosented as an example which is then poorly explained.

In sum, this may be a book for you, but probably not.
