Review

"This rather small book is a valuable resource for signal processing practioners, and a great learning tool for students of a real world signal processing." (Computing Reviews, February 20, 2008)

From the Back Cover

A very different DSP book! Tips, tricks of the trade, practical shortcuts, and clever, real-world engineering solutions you didn't learn in school—from a "dream team" of experienced signal-processing professionals

The practicing engineer's need for guidance on how to make DSP work led editor Richard Lyons to create his popular "DSP Tips & Tricks" column in IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. Now, Streamlining Digital Signal Processing collects those articles—each originally written by a different practicing DSP engineer—that have undergone careful editorial review and incorporated feedback from the magazine's readers, and added more explanations, applications, and illustrations. These new, highly readable chapters cover an assortment of signal processing topics such as digital filtering, spectrum analysis, specialized signal generation, high-speed function approximation, and more. While rich in the specialized DSP tips and tricks that make it a valuable resource for experienced working engineers, this book also contains sufficient fundamental DSP theory and simple mathematics to make it accessible to students.

This is so much more than just another DSP textbook—it bridges the theory-to-practice gap and gives practicing engineers and computer programmers the useful, real-life tips, tricks, and techniques they need to make DSP hardware and software designs operate faster, with improved accuracy and increased computational efficiency.

I wouldn't advise that students of digital signal processing buy this book. It is a well-written and unique tool for the professional, but it will likely not be useful for students unless you are working on some specialized project or Ph.D. and need advanced and specialized help. The tips are well-written, thorough, and well-illustrated. Part one, on efficient digital signal filtering, will be helpful for anyone from novice to professional. The rest of the book, however, deals with specific and complex topics. Quite frankly, Lyon's excellent book "Understanding Digital Signal Processing" includes most of the tips and tricks in part one and is aimed at the novice at an affordable cost. That book is a much better choice for students. I was looking for discussions on implementation of the arctangent function - don't ask me why - and this was the only book that had an accessible section on the subject. It is THAT kind of book. Have your copy of Oppenheim & Schafer's "Discrete-time Signal Processing" handy, though, because in explaining the details of some of these more difficult subjects the background material had to sacrificed for the sake of producing a compact volume that flows well. Highly recommended for the right audience.

This is the book's Editor, Richard Lyons. I was happy to read the positive Customer Reviews of this book, and I thank the reviewers for taking the time to post their comments. However, I'd like to respond to one reviewer's comment that, "Half a (sic) material is repition (sic) from Lyons other title." That comment is likely to mislead many readers.
In reality only four of this book's 28 chapters cover DSP topics comparable to the material I discuss in my earlier "Understanding Digital Signal Processing" book. While I am one of the book's contributors, there are 29 other engineers who contributed their own DSP material to this unique book.

To describe the content of the book, below I repeat the book's Preface.
------------------
PREFACE:

This book presents recent advances in digital signal processing (DSP) to simplify, or increase the computational speed of, common signal processing operations. The topics here comprise clever DSP "tricks of the trade" not covered in traditional DSP textbooks. This material is practical, real-world, DSP tips and tricks as opposed to the traditional highly-specialized, math-intensive, research subjects directed at industry researchers and university professors. Here we go beyond the standard DSP fundamentals textbook and present new, but tried-n-true, clever implementations of digital filter design, spectrum analysis, signal generation, high-speed function approximation, and various other DSP functions.
With this book we wished to create a resource that is relevant to the needs of the working DSP engineer by helping bridge the theory-to-practice gap between introductory DSP textbooks and the esoteric, difficult to understand, academic journals.

As a DSP (digital signal processing) practioneer for over 4 decades, I give this book my highest praise. It's an extensive "how-to-do-it" compilation of tips and tricks that lead to efficient processor design. The presentations are lucid and the DSP configurations are well proven and established. This book is a ready reference and is absolutely indispensible to anybody who works in DSP.

Solid treatment of techniques. Half a material is repition from Lyons other title. But if you dont have that, its a solid one. Little expensive for its size though.

Rich is a unique author in the world of engineering writing. Many years ago, when his first book came out, I was so inspired that I found him. Didn't take too much looking, he was local then in the SF Bay area. I had to tell him personally that his book was awesome! (pre-cliche AWESOME!). Well, he himself turned out be as unique as his book!

"Understanding Digital Processing" made such an impression on me that I have been trying to write a book on communications ever since (chapters at complextoreal.com) If all engineering books were written as well as Rich writes them, we would not have so much fear of sciences and math.

Be be honest, I have just ordered this book. It has not arrived yet. BUT, I am sooooo sure, it is going to a great follow-on, as great as the first. - Charan Langton
