This is a technically good book about video engineering, but it has two flaws:
1. The writing is many times not very easy to understand, there are many sentences that don't make too much sense to me. I am not a native English speaker, but I have spent last twenty years reading and writing in English.
2. There are terminologies poped up in one place, and there is no explanation for those, many times the author asks you to read in later chapters, for a reader who is not familiar with the material, it is difficult to read and confusing.
Overall, it is a very good book, but you need an introductory book before you can read this book.
