Format: Hardcover
This book is a very well written text intended for students. It has a good number of drills with answers that checks your learning at every step. Every chapter has detailed interesting applications. It has the most complete treatment of inverted pendulum problems not available in any book. It also has the simplest treatment of advanced state space topics along with robust control. You will not find a simpler treatment of robust control in any other book. It has a balanced treatment of classical and modern control. Most books just show you a step response in state space design. This book shows root locus and Bode plots of state space design problems and clearly links the two sides. Other books follow the treatment of this great book. The only shortcoming is a lack of nonlinear analysis and a weak digital control treatment. But for continuous linear systems this is a great book to learn from. It is also great for self study.

the math is stronger here hardly any theory to balance it out this book is only good if your teacher is using it as a supplemental resource to his lessons and not teaching from it because the stronger your mathematical foundation the more useless this book becomes, not student friendley either in regards o navigating through the material.dissapointment

This is supposed to be an introductory text in classical control systems, but it skips over some fundamental concepts that should be at least reviewed. It's a little bit better than Dorf & Bishop, but I think I prefer Nise's book. It does offer lots of drills throughout the sections and many problems at the end of the chapters, but the drills aren't worked out.

Format: Hardcover
The topics are presented in a clear way, using many examples and illustrations.

I own several books on Control Systems (including this one), but if you have to buy just one and you are in the middle of the process of choosing it, I would recommend Katsuhiko Ogata's Modern Control Engineering.

This is a good textbook, but considering its price, it's not a great buy.

Format: Hardcover
I can't even begin to imagine what the first three editions of this book were like... This book has many errors in it including answers to examples and drill problems. In addition, there are so few useful examples and in those examples, steps are often skipped and the answer magically appears with no good explanation at all. In the time that I've been a student at university, I have never encountered such a terrible book. The lack of examples and coherent language really makes this book a waste of paper. You better hope you have a good professor if you use this book.
