This book is unique in that it is written so that people can understand it easily, and quickly. Great pains were taken to make sure that this is not just another radar book to sit on the shelves of a company library or in the home of an engineer who just likes to buy nice books. This one is meant to be used, read, and profited from. Each contributor has given not just his slant on their subject, but has made extra effort to TEACH the material, and there are not many books like that, especially when there are multiple authors. The style is even and clear throughout. I recommend it to new engineers hired to work on radar systems and older ones who need to brush up or learn things they never had a chance to work on in their careers. --Edward Barile, Raytheon Corporation
This is well-written, readable book that covers all the basics in modern radar. It is sure to be the new standard with its breadth of topics and depth of coverage. It can be used as a text book in a beginning radar class, and is equally valuable for the self learner. The modern system approach is particularly helpful in putting the various components of radar in context. I will be using this book in a graduate class on radar." --David D. Long, Brigham Young University
This should be required reading, and the basis of every undergraduate or industry course, for both future engineers as well as any others working in the field who need a solid introduction to modern radar. It is an easily understandable, yet truly comprehensive, text that is designed from the ground up as a teaching textbook, rather than as a reference handbook. Each chapter includes a set of related problems to test the student's understanding of the material plus a well-organized list of additional suggested readings if the student wants to explore any specific topic in more detail. Answers to selected problems in each chapter are provided in the back of the book and answers to others are intentionally omitted -- an approach that makes this book ideally suited for both a self-taught course as well as for use in a more formal classroom environment. --Marshall Greenspan, Northrop Grumman Corporation

This particular book contains a lot of information involving radar operations. It seems some great minds went into creating this exceptional book - all of them from GTRI. Even with an undergraduate level of understanding, I am able to pick up on all of the material covered. I haven't picked up any other material involving antenna theory or RF theory either.
The only downside to the book seems to be that there isn't any information involving most of the common scan types. It would have been great if I could've learned about Raster scans or Sector scans, for instance, without having to look elsewhere. Even so, I've managed to learn a great deal without starting a library yet and as such, I give this book five stars.
I still believe that Skolnik book should also be used along with this and Mahafiza Radar book that is matlab based is also a very good supplement.
