This book is evil. I mean evil in the Biblical sense. Think Dante's Inferno and the innermost circle of hell. Actually, being frozen in a lake or forced to eat excrement seem rather pleasant compared to the twisted, nonsensical passages in this book. Perhaps I would have liked the book better if it had been written in Farsi. I don't understand Farsi either, but at least then it would have had an excuse.
The book is poorly worded. Examples are not fully worked, and make critical assumptions between steps that are neither documented nor explained. The homework problems bare as much semblance to the text as I bare to Tommy Lee or a large piece of office furniture. Sections of the book are not in chronological order, meaning that critical information for understanding a section is often several more sections ahead.
If you have to buy this text, I strongly recommend purchasing the Shaums (sp?) Outlines on Fourier Transforms, which is concisely written and has several well documented examples. I encourage you to keep this book in the bathroom as an alternate source of material should you run out of toilet paper. At least then, you may get some use out of it.

I had this book as a text for a Linear Systems course in my sophomore year. Barring the first two chapters about transformations and linear system properties the rest of the book is badly presented. Not many examples and although my school had a solutions manual it was filled with errors. Graphical convoltion, fourier series and transforms,laplace tranforms are so badly presented that it was almost impossible for me to follow. I had refer to other texts to make up for this. I generally don't like selling my texts but this one was the first to go once the class got over. Don't waste your money on this one.

I've had a class with the author of this book and found the book to be hard to follow, vague, and almost impossible to read. Unfortunately this might be the best book on this subject.

I had one semester with this book and one semester with a book by Ziemer. This one is far superior and wish I could have had the utilization of it in my first class. The examples are well thought out and I constantly use it as a reference book now that I'm in graduate school.
