"The authors...provide considerable background material, tell their story from scratch, proceed at a careful pace...and work out detailed applications...Recommended" Choice
This introduction to wavelet analysis, and to wavelet-based statistical analysis of time series, gives detailed descriptions of the theory and algorithms needed to understand and implement the discrete wavelet (and related) transforms. Numerous examples illustrate the techniques on real data. Embedded exercises--with full solutions provided--aid self-guided study; additional exercises can be used in a classroom setting. A Web site gives access to the time series and wavelets used in the book, as well as information on how to access software in S-Plus and other languages.

Wavelets are mathematical tools for analyzing time series or images (although not exclusively so: for examples of usage in other applications, see Stollnitz et al., 1996, and Sweldens, 1996). Read the first page

The text tries to be self-contained and the authors start out at a very elementary level. They emphasize applications and practical aspects of wavelets.
for time series analysts. It goes very deep within the applied
side of wavelet analysis on real time series while not compromising
the mathematical side. A lot of books and papers insist too much
on the mathematical side of wavelets while this one provides just
the right balance between rigor and practical insight. If your
interest does not lie in maths but just in wavelets as a tool,
stick to this one.
As a bonus, it contains a lot of exercices along with answers
at the end of the book...a very good textbook indeed...
I gave it three stars because most reviewers are far to liberal with their stars. To me 3 stars means worth buying, 4 means a must buy, and 5 means it'll be a classic for a long time.
I equate this book to Mallet's "A Wavelet Tour of Signal Processing". The subject matter is slightly different, but both are very readable.
