I read the first chapter that night and felt exhilarated. I had my first aha moment in DSP. Although I was out of graduate school for several years at that time, I felt that I had never really understood the subject. Yes, I could do the transforms for homework etc., but understood, not really. In this book, Lyons starts with discrete signals, goes through sampling and aliasing in the first chapter. Each chapter build gently on the previous. All just a model of clarity and beauty. I particularly loved the filter chapter, with such easy to understand exposition of what the equation meant, the forward part and the reverse part. We all love pictures and the book's strength is its ability to communicate not just in words but also in figures. From DFT to filter design to DSP algorithms, all come alive as explained by Lyons.
I think I did read the whole book in about a week. I had been writing papers and felt that this is the way engineering should be taught. This is the way engineering books should be written.Read more ›
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).
Core DSP concepts are made clear and intuitive. Lyons' pedagogical style is comparable to Steven Smith's introductory book (Digital Signal Processing: A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists, also freely distributed online at author's Web site). Math is used only when needed and generally kept to a minimum---a refreshing approach for such a technical topic.
This book, along maybe with Schaums Outline of Digital Signal Processing, 2nd Edition (Schaum's Outline Series), should form a good basis for conceptually understanding the fundamentals and beyond, so that upper undergraduate and graduate courses on DSP become more enjoyable. Lyons' clarity is uncommon. The breadth of the book is also commendable.
The book is not a substitute for the classic texts on DSP (Proakis, Oppenheim & Schafer, Manolakis) or Fourier theory (Bracewell, Papoulis); judging by his style, neither does the author make a pretense it is. Rather, this is a much needed attempt to gap the math--intuition gap so many of us have struggled with over their beginning DSP years. And a very successful one at that. Truly an exceptional and welcome addition to the DSP literature.
