I like the "folksy" historical style of the book. Lathi gives good motivation of introducing the topics. (The strong points of the book are) clarity of presentation, very interesting reading, good problems, good visual layout and text formatting. (Historical notes) are great! Few authors do this in an effective way. -- Prof. Mark Herro, Notre Dame University
I really liked the style of presentation. Worked out examples, explanation of concepts, style of presentation and readability are the strong points of the book. (We) find the book to be more desirable for our course (than the other books).
(Historical notes) are amusing as well as informative. (The Background chapter) is excellent. It helps the students to review the material rather quickly. I hope every textbook does this. Chapters on analog and digital filters are excellent. -- Prof. R. L. Tummala, Michigan State University
One thing I found very appealing about this text is its great balance of mathematical and intuitive explanation. A prime example of this is the excellent derivation and description of the sampling theorem.... The book (is) well paced, progressing well from a subject to the next.... I found all the examples quite good. I especially liked the combination and integration of graphical and mathematical convolution.... I found nothing that I would consider a weak point with this text. Introductory background material is very appealing.... The students will find (historical notes), both entertaining and "inspirational". -- Prof. Dwight Day, Kansas State University
This book compares well with other books, especially in its "user friendliness".... I did not note any weak points (in this book)....The Background chapter is very useful...The tone and presentation of material is useful for undergraduates. The author anticipates common questions. The historical notes give perspective and add to the gestalt of the text. -- Prof. T. Stacey, University of Missouri, Columbia
This is a good textbook because of clarity, suitability and writing style, (which is) smooth and pleasant. It covers topics in a casual and consistent manner. The difficulty level of examples, exercises, problems, and illustrations is suitable for a course in early junior years.... This book has no major and obvious weaknesses.... Lathi is among the most popular (authors) among (our) faculty members. (He is) well appreciated for his style and match with our curriculum requirements. The background material is useful.... For students it is a very valuable set of reference material throughout the course. The historical overview is one of the most attractive features of the book. -- Prof. Hua Lee, University of California, Santa Barbara
This is a very well written book (as are all books by Lathi). Various concepts are carefully developed and explained. The author tries to be rigorous without being formal, yet maintains an easy intuitive style that is particularly useful for juniors. (There are) lots of intuitive explanations with physical insights.... a must for an average junior. Examples, exercises, problems, and illustrations are done very well and are quite useful for self-study. (Historical notes) are a nice touch. Makes the material interesting and human. (Background chapter) is a nice feature. -- Prof. J. K. Tugnait, Auburn University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

However, the chapter organization is NOT systematic.
For example, it teaches DFT before DTFT.
Also, the digital part assumes you already learned analog part.
This means that when you need look up digital part, you need to read analog part as well,
which is NOT convenient.
I would suggest Continuous and Discrete Time Signals and Systems with CD-ROM by Mandal.
This has much better organization and still clear.
this subject could get mathematically ugly very easily if the author isn't careful.
the illustrations included are also very helpful.
i gave this book 4 stars, because is simply didn't reach the 5 stars bar for another book i bought;
written by Jack Golten "understanding signals and systems" it is rather is an introduction to the subject but it is realy inspiring and should be on the top of all books on this subject, i'm very sorry to write about another book while reviewing lathi's book, my main moral is to benifit students who want to understand the subject by hinting about another Guru Master.
I bought 4 texts for the purpose of educating myself in "Signals and Systems".
1. Signal Processing & Linear Systems(Lathi) 2. An Introduction to Circuit Analysis(Scott) 3. Signals & Systems(Cont. & Discrete - Ziemer) 4. Signals & Systems(Oppenheim & Willsky)
While each of these texts has it's strengths, none of them explains things as clearly as Lathi. He is truly a gifted author.
