The down side is that there are no selected answers in the back of the book, the solution manual is locked down, and even Chegg does not have guided answers. So if you want to reach yourself DSP, you will probably need a more traditional textbook with a solution manual (usually an older edition).
The organization of this book is also astounding. First, in the preface, Mr. Lyons shows a nice block diagram of the main techniques of DSP, and how they relate to one another. Then, the book begins with a deep introduction of analog and discrete signals, and basic manipulations of discrete signals, and periodic sampling. And this is the best part: In chapter 3 the book covers the DFT, and then the FFT in chapter 4, whereas other authors make you wait until much later in the book to cover those important subjects. Then you reach digital filters in chapter 5, again, with a natural explanation, using the metaphor of cars on a bridge. (If you're a software engineer like me, you understand the power of metaphors as a learning and teaching tool.) So he gets to the heart of DSP in the right order, and in a logical and natural way.
This should be the book used by all instructors who want their students to truly understand digital signal processing.
At the same time I was working on a software defined radio for the HF amateur bands. I had little knowledge of I and Q signals, analytic signals, Hilbert transforms - a lot of things that make single sideband modulation/demodulation possible in an SDR.
This book, in addition to extensive coverage of FIR/IIR filtering and related topics, also covers complex/quadrature signals, upconversion/downconversion, Hilbert transform, sample rate conversion, polyphase filtering, etc. in a way that's understandable and applicable. The math is there as one would expect, but then the author also explains things in a physical/real sense. I was able to learn these topics and actually apply them - the fact that I was able to make my SDR work is a testimony to the book.
To summarize - if I need to brush up on a DSP topic, or learn something new, but then APPLY it, this book is an wonderful reference. If you're considering this book, be sure and review the Table of Contents - there's a lot in this book. The Processing Tricks section has been very helpful as well. I can highly recommend this book.
