Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book and I ahve to say it is absolutely aweful.

He basically lists a few formulas without any rigor, gives an extremely brief description of different types of lasers and such, and spends way too much time on a brief history of lidar which is again not very good.

The entire book, which is already small for a book falsely boasting a strong foundation from the bottom up in lidar, is double spaced and full of typos. It looks like some failed PhD student's thesis.

The book Elastic Lidar is far better and does exactly what this book claims to attempt.
