5.0 out of 5 stars good news, bad news November 11, 2006
By it
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As the title states, this is a handbook and not a textbook. It summarizes a vast amount of information about filters without giving any derivations. It is best used by people who occasionally need a filter design.

The good news is that much additional information is included compared to previous editions.

The bad news is that the printing quality is lower than on previous editions. Many illustrations look like multiple generation photocopies. The binding quality is lower so you will have to be gentle with the book to keep in one piece. To be specific it is a paperback book with stiff covers.

The tables of elliptical filter data has been removed and replaced by a computer program.

It would have been nice to fill the CD with free filter programs available on the web. AADE is a good free LC filter program. Many IC companies have free active filter programs.

There is one blatantly false statement in the book. It claims to be the first easy to understand book on filters ever published. At least as long ago as 1960 there were easy to understand books on filters that also included design tables. One famous one was by Van Valkenburg and another by Kuo.

Technically excellent and comprehensive cover of the subject. The faint of heart should not be deterred by the mathematics, which although unavoidable in this area, is clear and well-layed out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only if you are desperate August 12, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I own quite a few filter design books, and this is one of the poorest in my library. The problem is that there is just a tiny amount of information on any given topic. Its like trying to learn calculus from a Wikipedia artcle.

If you need to design filters from scratch, this won't help much.

I've already knew this book. This is a good reference for filters designs.
This new edition has more information about digital filters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is that an inductor or a capacitor? February 12, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a good reference book on filter design and got several samples sent to my Kindle and liked this one the best. He is very clear in his terminology and ideas the book covers a good deal of information.

The poor rating is given do to the size of the pictures. There is a particular picture showing LC filters that would be wonderful, but the text/symbols are way to small and using the Kindle zoom feature resolves nothing. There were several other pictures throughout that were like this.

Summary: Great text and information but the diagrams and things worth trying and testing are impossible to see.
