"To make a sophisticated topic easy to understand is not a trivial task; Mix and Olejniczak have managed it, and the result is a very useful guide to wavelets." (Computing Reviews.com, March 19, 2004)
“…(the text is) self-contained and very useful for understanding…” (Zentralblatt Math, Vol.1037, No.12, 2004)
"Elements of Wavelets for Engineers and Scientists is a must for every practicing engineer, scientist, computer programmer, and student needing a practical, top-to-bottom grasp of wavelets.” (Mathmatical Reviews, Issue 2004g)
From the Back Cover
An indispensable guide to understanding wavelets
Elements of Wavelets for Engineers and Scientists is a guide to wavelets for "the rest of us"practicing engineers and scientists, nonmathematicians who want to understand and apply such tools as fast Fourier and wavelet transforms. It is carefully designed to help professionals in nonmathematical fields comprehend this very mathematically sophisticated topic and be prepared for further study on a more mathematically rigorous level.
Detailed discussions, worked-out examples, drawings, and drill problems provide step-by-step guidance on fundamental concepts such as vector spaces, metric, norm, inner product, basis, dimension, biorthogonality, and matrices.
Chapters explore . . .
- Functions and transforms
- The sampling theorem
- Multirate processing
- The fast Fourier transform
- The wavelet transform
- QMF filters
- Practical wavelets and filters
. . . as well as many new wavelet applicationsimage compression, turbulence, and pattern recognition, for instancethat have resulted from recent synergies in fields such as quantum physics and seismic geology.
Elements of Wavelets for Engineers and Scientists is a must for every practicing engineer, scientist, computer programmer, and student needing a practical, top-to-bottom grasp of wavelets.

Probably the first to read is "A primer on wavelets by Walker" This book would be the second as it gets deeper into the definition and mathematical formalism than Walker yet is understandable to engineers. After that I would probably recommend Ripples in Mathematics on lifting and A wavelet tour by Mallat.
This book on the other hand presents the material in a fashion that is digestable to the average engineer. This is a credit to their writting and teaching skill. They write as if their first goal is to let you understand (teach) not simply write.
I would say that the first books to read on this subject would be this one and the book by Walker. These books are sufficient to get a good understanding of Wavelets and to be able to use them. They also pave the way for more advanced books on the subject if desired.
