Format: Paperback
Theoretically, the flow of explainations is Okay. The problem is that it contains too much material for one semester course(for an introductory couse), too much math and examples. It also lacks a CAD package such as matlab and simulink to support the book. The package becomes a must for a current textbook nowadays. More clear concepts rather than too much math examples and more practical application examples are hopeful.

Format: Paperback
But as an undergrad with GPA 5.8 (~distinction), this book really doesn't explain to ME the maths in an engineering context. For example, Chapter 3, with Orthonormal/Orthogonal signals, had me completely left in the dark as to why, as part of my job as a microelectronic engineer, I would want to orthonormalise a bunch of signals, even though the introductory paragraph goes:
"Orthogonal representations of signals are of general importance in solving many engineering problems. Two of the reasons this is so are that it is mathematically convenient to represent arbitrary signals as a weighted sum of orthogonal waveforms, since many of the calculations involving signals are simplified by using such a representation and that it is possible to visualize the signal as a vector in an orthogonal coordinate system..."
It then shows me some square waves that are apparently "orthonormal" and proceeds to dive straight in from there with the maths. In my subject we wrote a matlab program to show the orthonormalised version of a bunch of exponential signals (t^n where n=0..5); now /those/ final waveforms helped me understand better, but still..
Personally I find a lot of the maths quite ugly (orthonormalisation is just an example that could have been explained better), which I guess is the nature of the subject. But then maths isn't really my strength (I get Credits for my maths subjects) - and perhaps other readers find this book more inspiring. I have talked about this book with fellow students and I can only conclude (personally) that students with only an average ability/interest in maths will perhaps struggle with some of the proofs and find themselves "just remembering".

Format: Paperback
Overall this books is only okay. It emphasizes formulas and procedure way too much. Concepts are short, if concepts are explained at all. Basically, it lacks the necessary theory.

The material covered in this text is well presented including many examples. An excellent textbook for the study of signals and systems.

Unfortunately, my transaction experience was compromised by the fact that I was lured into purchase based on an erroneous discription suggesting that the book was in hard cover; it was a paperback and arrived at a time during the semister when I was forced to accept it. I HATE THIS BAIT AND SWITCH THAT OFTEN OCCURS THROUGH ONLINE BOOK PURCHASES!!!

In the paperback version, this book is very likely to fall apart on you by the time you are finished with a semester. As far as content is concerned, it is a mediocre book with a lot of confusing wording. Some parts of the book make a lot of sense and others just go completely over your head. It often seems somewhat disorganized and poorly written.

The examples in this book were 'meh' at best, and that's how i learned all of my EE courses. I relied on my professors to give me meaning so I didn't read too many of the passages. I remember they started easy and okay to read but soon became not worth my time.
