"Speech Recognition introduces the principles of ASR systems, including the theory and implementation issues behind multi-speaker continuous speech recognition..." (IEE Signal Processing Magazine, Vol. 18, No.1, January 2001)
From the Back Cover
Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) is the enabling technology for hands-free dictation and voice-triggered computer menus. It is becoming increasingly prevalent in environments such as private telephone exchanges and real-time information services. Speech Recognition introduces the principles of ASR systems, including the theory and implementation issues behind multi-speaker continuous speech recognition. Focusing on the algorithms employed in commercial and laboratory systems, the treatment enables the reader to devise practical solutions for ASR system problems. It addresses in detail C++ programming techniques used to develop ASR applications, thus offering skills that will prove useful in any large C++ based software project. Possible extensions of the well-established ASR technology are highlighted, based on "Hidden Markov Models" applied to fields such as modelling and prediction of econometric series. Features include:
- Accompanying CD-ROM containing all C++ source code of a complete laboratory multi-speaker continuous-speech ASR system (e.g. Initialisation, Training, Recognition, Evaluation, etc.)
- Detailed theoretical, mathematical and technical explanations of ASR
- A practical account of the functioning of ASR

You will find this book useful only if you really spend time covering its C++ code line by line. If you want theory only, goto read other books.
I rate 2 star for its theory and 5 star for its implementation.
The choice of C++ and inclusion of a CD-ROM with full source is a nice touch however. Just be aware that the code is not geared for real-time recognition.
The c++ code works but there should be more remarks to make it easier to the readers to get along.
There is a free toolkit to download from the Internet named HTK
that contains full C code and a free book to the same theory so actually it is a waste of money to buy this book !!!
