Book Description

"In 1971 Dr. Paul C. Lauterbur pioneered spatial information encoding principles that made image formation possible by using magnetic resonance signals. Now Lauterbur, ""father of the MRI,"" and Dr. Zhi-Pei Liang have co-authored the first engineering textbook on magnetic resonance imaging. This long-awaited, definitive text will help undergraduate and graduate students of biomedical engineering, biomedical imaging scientists, radiologists, and electrical engineers gain an in-depth understanding of MRI principles.The authors use a signal processing approach to describe the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging. You will find a clear and rigorous discussion of these carefully selected essential topics:

  • Mathematical fundamentals
  • Signal generation and detection principles
  • Signal characteristics
  • Signal localization principles
  • Image reconstruction techniques
  • Image contrast mechanisms
  • Image resolution, noise, and artifacts
  • Fast-scan imaging
  • Constrained reconstruction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook
This is an excellent textbook. Easy to follow if you are comfortable with Electromagnetics already. Lot's of math and examples inside. Make sure u get this book first, if you study MRI.

5-0 out of 5 stars A definitive text for the signal processing of MRI
Magnetic resonance has recently recieved many riches in the form of excellent, definitive texts that have bundled together the advances of the last 20 or so years. Drs. Liang and Lauterbur have added to this trove by writing a text that goes beyond the standard descriptions of magnetic resonance image formation and including many advanced techniques available today, some of which they originated. The ideal audience for this text includes scientists, engineers, and physicians actively developing MRI applications from the physics on up. Though containing many recent developments it contains a core of medical imaging information that will not be outdated. The mathematical depth is sufficient to serve as a reference of basic and sophisticated methods but with enough pedagogical information to tutor the interested student. Liang and Lauterbur should be on the shelf of any serious professional or insightful student.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent coverage of MR physics, however complicated maths.
The selection of the chapters and the overall coverage of this book are excellent. It provides an outstanding and detailed description of MR physics and of how MR signals are generated and processed. However, not being an engineer or a physicist but a MD interested in MRI, I had some problems with the mathematical background required to understand the formulas used in this book. I feel that the book would be greatly improved if a more detailed explanation to the mathematics were given. At this point, I would recommend this book to graduate students or Ph.D.'s in physics, in biomedical or in electrical engineering, who want to understand in detail the principles of MR signal generation and processing. Because of the somewhat complicated mathematics, the book might be somewhat less destined, but still of interest, to radiologists and MRI physicians who, like me, want to enhance their understanding of MR physics and signal processing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Only book which consolidates Audio coding & Standards
This book describes the basic details and the Signal Processing behind the Audio compression. It also describes PQMF and MDCT in continuation which is rare in books. Almost all the standard audio codecs are described with comparisons. I am delighted to read the book. At least my search end with this book on this topic. After getting this book, I need not look into IEEE & AES papers. For Audio engineers working on this domain should read this book to have a complete picture and overview of the technology and the domain.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not satisfying for a nerd like myself...
The book gives a good review of the historical development of audio coding standards with emphasis on ISO. Generally speaking it is well written, but the technical details as well as theoretical aspects are frankly, quite superficial; therefore it is not satisfying for a (proud) nerd like myself. If one's goal is to implement a program to handle the MP3 bitstream, for instance, then the book does not help. If one's goal is to design a new filter bank to improve the MP3 coder, then the book does not help either. However, it is recommended for beginners to get a flavor of the audio coding field.

5-0 out of 5 stars Touching the core mechanisms underlying digital audio codec.
For a long time in my school life and now as a audio engineer I look forward to this kind of book.
MPEG Audio or AC3 audio standard is rather simple, but the syntax and decoding procedures imply considerably complex algorithms have been included there.
This book explains related theorys - for example filterbanks in detail, psychoacoustics, entropy coding, etc - concretely and expertly. She(Bosi) was one of the leading members in making MPEG Audio Standards.
Strongly recommendable!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the digicam/image editing books I've seen!
As a relatively novice photographer (haven't owned one since my old Brownie Hawkeye) with some knowledge of computers and a new digital camera, I've been working my way through as many books on digicams and image-editing software as I can find. Some are pretty general, some are more specialized, but most seem to repeat the same mostly superficial information and advice on both photography and digital editing. This book is the great exception! Ang is a very talented photographer and this lushly printed... volume is crammed with his work, but he's also a very good teacher. The first part of the book, under the heading of "Total Photography," is a mini-course in types of cameras and lenses, lighting, optical physics, and the essential practical differences in using film-based and digital cameras. (There's also a survey of information on specific models of cameras, printers, and scanners, which will soon be outdated and which might have been omitted.) The second section, "Photography for the Digital Age," leads you through such topics as composition, zoom, optical distortion, color balance, and how to avoid or at least fix the most common mistakes; I learned a great deal from his clear explanations and visual examples. "A Compendium of Ideas" is almost a separate book, being an excursion through all the major categories of subjects that interest people with cameras, from buildings and travel to microphotography and high-speed sports; you'll want to return to this section now and then for leisurely browsing. "Radical Conversions" and "All about Image Manipulation" are worth the price of the book all by themselves, with very clear and often very detailed discussions of issues which I'm sure are old hat to experienced shutterbugs but which are new and often perplexing to me, including proper cropping, burning-in and dodging, sharpening, blurring, cross-processing, color vs. black-and-white, and lots of others. Ang is quite good at balancing received photographic wisdom with new digital ideas. He also gets deeply into such computer-specific subjects as levels, cloning, and the differences and similarities between channels, layers, and masks. (He seems not to have much use for such glitzy effects-filter tricks as stained glass and embossing filters, with which I have to agree.) "The Output Adventure" is very good on getting the color on your monitor to agree with the color your printer produces, and there's a final section on portfolios, copyrights, and the business of photography. I can't recommend this one highly enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars New to (digital) photography? This is a great book!
A large portion of my work entails dealing with image manipulation on computers. I am very comfortable with Adobe Photoshop and other similar software programs, but I have never used an SLR camera, let alone a digital one. Although the first chapter was information I already knew about the technology aspect of digital photography, it would be great reading for someone who is new to the subject. I'll agree, the software emphasis is on Macs, but that's because if you know anyone who does any publishing work, they use a Mac.

The most useful and easily the best reason to own this book are the example photos. They are all in exquistite color! Heck, even if you could care less about digital photography or how to get the most out of your camera, this would make an excellent coffee table book because of the beautiful pictures alone. Each concept is beautifully illustrated with great example photos and explained in detail.

4-0 out of 5 stars More Great Amazon Service
This was my second photography book purchase from Amazon in a month and again, the book is very good, the price is great (good bye Barnes & Noble) and again, Amazon's service is EXCELLENT !!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous production; flawed attempt at trying to do it all.
This is a beautifully produced collection of digital images, deserving of a place on the coffeetable. The author - a wellknown photographer and teacher - made a valiant attempt at covering the entire digital imaging field. Unfortunately, that includes a (long outdated) discourse on digital cameras, computers (current crop of PCs does as fine a graphics job as do Mac's), camera and computer purchase recommendations (ie, get a Mac). Well-illustrated sections on how digital cameras transform light into pixels are diluted in impact by 'how a computer works' and so on. The section 'Image Manipulation' is very well done with good screen shots on quality paper and sufficient detail to take a stab at it. Yet a beginning digital photographer will find even that excellent section lacking in how-to-to-get-started advice. The exhaustive sections on various photographic techniques (landscapes, portraits, closeups, buildings, animals and humans in the wild, etc) again are sumptuously and lavishly illustrated, but speak in sweeping generalities rather than in detailed specifics. I also was put off by the substantial bookspace taken up by scanning of film negatives and prints - whereas the title leads one to assume the text exclusively addresses digital photography. Overall: a beautifully produced idea book for advanced photographers -- but it is neither a tutorial nor a teaching manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners as well as advanced photographers.
A year ago I transitioned into digital photography, prior to which I used regular cameras (pocket as well as sophisticated) for years. I found Mr. Ang's book perfect for a mixed audience, as it covers basics as well as advanced concepts, all well illustrated with pictures. The color pictures really trigger ideas about what is possible with your own photographs.

A full 20 -30 percent of the book is devoted to what technology can help you do once the picture is taken i.e. using software. That is so critical in digital photography - and Mr. Ang gives umpteen examples and tips.

This is the kind of book you will use as a reference constantly. It is not for sitting down and reading from beginning to end - but using different parts as you mature into digital photography.

I borrowed it from my local library, and eventually bought it - even though I have several digital photography books already.

I definitely recomend this guide - especially at the fantastic Amazon price (cheaper than the store). ... Read more

Book Description

Weblogs--frequently updated, independently produced, and curiously addictive--have become some of the most popular sites on the Web today. The Weblog Handbook is the first book to explain how weblogs work and explore their impact on the media landscape.

There is no formula for creating a superb weblog--but there are lessons to be drawn from maintaining one. In The Weblog Handbook, Rebecca Blood draws on her experience as an early participant in the weblog community to share what she has learned in three years of "living online."

With a clear and engaging voice, Rebecca explains how to choose among the available tools, even walking the beginner through the process of creating their first weblog. Along the way she answers commonly asked questions concerning weblog etiquette, how to attract readers, and the qualities that make a weblog stand out, alerting the novice to considerations--and pitfalls--they didn't know to ask about.

For students of digital culture, The Weblog Handbook provides an account of the history of the movement, an explanation of the "weblog method", and a thoughtful examination of weblogs and journalism.

Finally, Rebecca examines how the weblog community has grown and changed, the dangers confronting it, and the ways in which weblogs are affecting and affected by both online and offline culture. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The accumulated wisdom of an expert.
I just finished re-reading The Weblog Handbook after having first read through it in depth this weekend. It's a great book, and the greatest compliment I can pay it is that it does an excellent job of keeping its author's voice. I focused on the presence of RCB's voice because I thought that no book could do justice to the topic of weblogs without being true to one of their defining characteristics, a strong personal perspective.

As the book is clearly targeted at an audience that is already at least familiar with, and most likely patrons of, weblogs, I was a bit hesitant of the tone being too boosterish. Most of the "For Dummies" books (not that this is one) spend time trying to convince their audience to be enthused about a topic that they've already (1) bought a book about and (2) accepted their "dummy" status regarding. This book assumes you're already sold. While there is undoubtedly enthusiasm, there's a healthy dose of reality about what it takes to start and maintain a decent blog. ("If, after spending your workday at the computer, the last thing you want to do when you get home is turn on your PC, you should probably take up knitting or join a film club instead.")

There is a deliberate aversion to getting too in-depth with any of the weblogging tools, which isn't surprising given the fact that Rebecca's Pocket is maintained with manually created HTML and FTP. I'd suggest that this is one area (the *only* area, actually) where the author's proclivities diverged from the interests many readers would have, as the cursory mentions of the tools as being essentially fungible ignore the reality that the overwhelming majority of webloggers use one of the handful of prominent tools like Blogger, Radio, LiveJournal and Movable Type. I'm willing to cede the argument that a discussion of those tools might have taken the book from Handbook territory into the Technical Guide realm.

The most cogent and important thoughts in The Weblog Handbook have nothing to do with "Practical Advice on Creating and Maintaining" a weblog, they have to do with understanding the social context and media implications of weblogs, both as readers and writers/editors. The first chapter details how weblogs promote social literacy, and the motif recurs throughout the book, prompting some thought-provoking sections on weblog ethics and responsible methods of promoting one's own site.

I was concerned, on my first reading, with the few mentions of specific URLs and events like the World Trade Center attacks as points of reference. Another trip through the text removes a lot of my concern, as the points probably stood out more to me due to my perspective, and they're only used as context, and any worries that they might seem dated are silly in the context of a book that's about a phenomenon that's only a few years old. The whole *book* will, hopefully, seem dated in a relatively short time. The fact that Weblog Madness is mentioned a few times during the text and has since shut down only underscores the inherently transient nature of the web, and doesn't negate the value of the ideas expressed. It might serve the book well to have the list all of the ...referenced URLs for each chapter, along with (perhaps) updated links.

Most of the audience will also probably be concerned about a preponderance of "a-list" mentions or inside jokes, and there are, honestly, none. Fortunately absent, also, is any significant attention to the loud but worthless in-fighting that plagues a few small clusters of the weblog community. There's a healthy respect for the fact that these never affect the other 99% of the weblog world. I'd raise a bit of contention over the book being labelled a "handbook", as my perception of that format is a little more structured and textbookish. That's a small hair to split, though, as the narrative tone suits the topics perfectly.

So, was there anything revelatory in the book for me? Not really. But I've been doing this for, well... about as long as RCB. I didn't expect to have some "A-ha!" moment, especially since I've had the privilege of discussing a lot of these topics with her in person. For the book's *intended* audience, however, I think there's a great deal of insight, ideas that I know I didn't stumble across until I'd been doing this for a year or two. Considering the book's cheaper than a single CD, it seems likely that a lot of people who either just jumped into the blog world, or are just about to, might spring for it to give them a leg up. I hope they do; They'll be better webloggers for having read it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not a "How-to", but a "Why-to"
Rebecca Blood doesn't waste her time -- or yours -- with tips and tricks relating to a piece of software which is probably out-of-date before it is delivered to your door. She doesn't assume that her readers are "Dummies." She isn't interested in nudges and winks to the blogging community. Instead, she presents a passionate, lucid guide to the essence of blogging.

In the 190 pages of text, Blood demonstrates over and again that blogging is all about self-discovery. You will most likely not find a huge audience, she tells us, but you will find that you are a better writer than you were before you started blogging. You probably won't be a huge influence on public policy, but you will hone your reasoning and filtering skills by engaging the topics you care about. You may not ever make a penny from your blog, but you can improve your reputation and your standing in your industry by becoming a resource and a reference point.

For the most part, bloggers seem to be thoughtful people and I cannot imagine any weblog writer -- or any online diarist or creative writer, for that matter -- fiinishing this book without a renewed belief in the purpose and value of their endeavor.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Weblog Handbook
Rebecca Blood's handbook on blogging is an excellent guide for beginners. This book provides information on everything from creating a blog for the first time to maintaining an existing blog. Blood includes sections on weblog etiquette and ethics, which is especially helpful for those who are just starting to blog. Throughout the book she also includes relevant links. Her tone is informal, which makes the book an interesting and easy read.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Why of Weblog
I also read "Blogging: Genius Strategies...". If I had to compare the two books I would state that the other was the how, and this book is the why.
Rebecca talks much of the edicate related to blogs and how they can help improve you as a person and as a writer.

2-0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, Good for beginners
If you just heard or have never heard of blogging: *****

Blood's book is a book about ideas, not the nuts and bolts. Most people can gather what blood has outlined through experience and reading other blogs. She covers great material in a straightforward manner, but this book does not desearve rave reviews.

What Blood does great is introduces Weblogging to an audience who might not want to start a blog, but is curious about the culture. Her passion is evident, and for a beginner, absolute-just-heard-of-blogging-and-wants-to-know-more person, this is the perfect book. Conceptually, this book is a great help.

If you know or have any experience with bloging, you might try elsewhere, this read might be boring. She gives great examples, but they are difficult to understand because there are no real to life visuals.

Great, easy read, okay execution, but not for experienced bloggers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Understanding Color Management
The title "Understanding Color Management" is a very appropriate. The list of books and papers on colour management is getting quite long by now, but this is in my view the first one to be really thorough, clear and in depth.

Looking at mr Sharmas background you'll understand why. Abhay Sharma is an ex Crosfield man (todayday part of Fujifilm Electronics). The practical "hands on" experience with Fujifilm's colour management R&D team shines through in all chapters of the book.

The layout of the book is quite conventional, going from the fundamentals of colour theory to more in depth discussions. What is different is the clarity in each chapter, and the depth in wich mr Sharma explains the issues.

While getting and reading "Understanding Color Management" by Abhay Sharma is wholehartedly recommended by me, there are some few areas where I still wish for more clarification or help. One is on the matter of how to correctly calibrate and use the monitor. Abhay concludes, like many other, that using a whitepoint of 5000 K (D50) often results in a "dull image". Yes it does, using a faulty calibration tool like the Apple buildt in monitor color calibration, as well as trying some of the commercial software using measuring devices. The trick is to achieve correct luminance at 5000 K, typhically around 100 cd/m2, as recommended in the ISO 12646 standard (refered to in the book). Many software adjust the whitepoint in the last stage of the calibration process by reducing the power of the blue channel, resulting in a too low luminance (brightness) of the monitor. The ambient lighting condition also effect the appearence of the monitor. A too bright illuminated room prevent the monitor from accurately rendering the colours. Unfortunately the recommended very low ambient light of 32 lux is not mentioned by Sharma.

But all in all it's a very, very good book on a quite complex and "difficult" subject.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good tutorial of basic control system
This is a really good book that simplified control system for the real world. Most text spend too much time on theory and analysis and end the discussion with a bunch of equations and graphs without explaining how to implement the design. This book covers both analog and digital control, and lets you download a software from the author's web site. This software, ModelQ, lets you play with various parameters so you can see how the system behaves when it is not optimized.

One drawback with the book is it only covers PID control and its variants, but doesn't cover state-space control. While state-space control may be considered "overkill" by many control engineers, state-space is used in industry. The decision to use state-space is often not in the hands of individual engineers, so it may not be an option to ignore state-space. It would be nice if Mr. Ellis could cover state-space in his next edition of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book on modern control systems
This book is a great guide to problems and solutions for modern control systems. Many text will have page after page of formulas with little link to the real world of control system design. Mr. Ellis provides answers to the problems faced by todays engineers.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book for practicing engineers!
George Ellis does a great job of bridging the gap between academia and industy in Control System Design Guide 2nd Edition. This book gives the practicing engineer the information necessary to put into practice much of the theory that he/she learned in the university. The book primarily focuses on motion control and modeling of motion systems. If you are working on a control system and would like to make sure you get the performance you need, you should buy this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars New edition available
Please note that a new edition of this book was published in May 2000 and is also available on this website. The book has been greatly expanded and is receiving great reviews. The book is still entitled Control System Design Guide 2nd edition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Controls systems A-Z
While the 1st edition of the book is itself a good text on the subject, how could this book be improved upon? It appears that the 1st edition is at best only an outline of what appears it the 2nd edition. Each of the subjects is covered in much more detail than the 1st edition. New subjects have also been added. Just the section on motors makes this book worth reading. The appendix is very interesting reading, and could almost be made into a quick reference book itself!

The book is well organized, and subjects are presented in a logical sequence: The Z domain makes a lot more sense if one first understands the S domain. The writing style is excellent, and has a way of explaining potentially confusing material, in a simple, clear manner. The mathematics throughout the book helps explain the much of theory, but if the reader doesn't care for the math, an understanding of the subject can still be gained without it.

Many college texts approach the subject from theory alone. While this book also provides the theory, it also presents the practical application side in a perfect balance. It is apparent that the author has worked in the real world. Also appreciated was the free Model-Q software examples sprinkled through out the book. They enable a reader the ability to experiment with the examples, and gain a better understanding of each of the subjects.

While this text is a very thorough, where a reader wants to explore a subject further, the numerous references to other sources are everywhere. No matter how much you think you may know about the subject, there is something everyone can learn from this book. This book is control systems A-Z, and is the best book I have seen on the subject. I highly recommend this book to anyone regardless of his or hers expertise level.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Book !
This book is just GREAT.
It covers almost every single ascpect of image and video processing. Everything is in deep and very good explained. A lot of before-and-after example pictures (important ones in color) are provided too. But beware. You need a fairly good understanding of math to read the book. It is not intended to explain how to use Photoshop, but rather how to write your own ;-)
This book is not a read-along book. Sometimes you have to read a section 2 or 3 times to understand it.
I think sometimes a good Snippet of C-Code would help to understand, but this is acceptable.
Again: A outstanding book, which fully covers all my needs.
The price of 100 us$ is ok, because it's a lot of a book...

4-0 out of 5 stars Image Processing for the mathematically inclined
This is an encyclopedia of image processing topics. It contains some introductory material to help people understand what images are and how to process them. The majority of the text, however, is for experienced people wanting to look up topics.

This book is big. It is about 8"x11" by 900 pages. It contains material from 100 different professionals on 50 different topics.

The style is academic. The editor is the editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. The page style is similar to what you would see in an IEEE Transaction.

There is plenty of math. The text explains the mathematics, but not to the depth I would like to see.

The authors illustrate the techniques with many images. If there are no "before and after" images in an image processing book, reject it. Well, this book has plenty of images. That is a strong point.

A week point is there is no source code illustrating the techniques and algorithms. I find this a major weakness, but one that is not unique to this book.

The authors leave much to the reader. This is not a read from cover to cover book. The reader must go slow, take notes, study, and read again to understand the material.

All in all, this is a good source of knowledge on image processing. If you work with images and write software to process images, you should have this book on your desk.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent journal-quality round-up
This is a very nice reference work for image processing professionals. It is a collection of articles by various experts in aspects of image processing, reporting on the state-of-the-art in their particular domains. The coverage is broad and deep. However, it is not for everyone. The writing style is that of a refereed journal. If you are not comfortable with that style of exposition, or if you are simply trying to find a snippet of code to implement a particular algorithm, this is not the book for you. At the other extreme, do not expect to find new and startling insights into the field that you did your dissertation on. However, if you want to understand the current state of the art of a colleague's field, or if you need to expand your expertise into a new area of image processing, this is a very good place to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!!!
I bought and received this book about a month ago. I had been using the Gonzalez book for quite some time. It's quite poor compared to this book. This handbook is so accessible and complete, it's all I'm using in my work now. It's very much like a textbook and handbook and how-to book all rolled in one. I work for Microsoft in the digital video area and I'm using it daily. Kudos!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference but dated
Not a bad reference for most users. It is a little basic and some of the info is dated. It's a little weak in more advanced areas like indiredt addressing, use and construction of subroutines, but otherwise this is a good book to keep in a general library for technicians responsible for supporting PLC based systems.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for AB users
I have used this text in our PLC class for three years. I really like that it is specific to Allan Bradley products. The workbook that goes with this text has programming assignments to reinforce the concepts. As I train on AB SLC500s exclusively, it is almost ideal. I say almost becaue there are many references to obsolete instructions used with a PLC no longer manufactured. It is due for a new edition. But until then, it remains a very good text to teach from, or if you simply want to know more about the subject.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for beginner students.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best Beginners Book on Robotics.....
If your one of those who thought that the idea of building your own robot was just too daunting a task, there is good news. Gordon McComb has recreated what has long been one of the most popular books for the do-it your-selfer robotics enthusiast. The Robot Builder's Bonanza brings back some tried and true building concepts along with a fresh update of new technology. This is all packaged in a progressive step-by-step approach to helping the reader build upon previous lessons as he follows along with the projects. McComb is no amateur at helping turn the techno arcane babble of science into easy to understand concepts that can be grasped by the average person. He is also the notable author of Gadgeteer's Goldmine, (Tab/McGraw-Hill) and Lasers, Ray Guns, and Light Cannons, (Tab/McGraw-Hill), both still in publication.

You won't be making any R2D2s here. What you will find is a building blocks approach to constructing your own basic metal or plastic pal. Successive chapters will show you about robot building fundamentals using commonly available materials. Locomotion engineering on how to use motors, wheels and gears. Constructing robotic arms and hands. Sensor design on how to detect objects and navigate. Sound capabilities that will give your robot a voice or teach it to obey your commands. Remote control of your robot using wired and wireless technology. Programing micro devices for controlling your robot. This and much more is detailed in a no noncense clearly understood writing style. The book is profusely illustrated and diagrammed to help the reader with every project and example. I found the chapters on the Basic Stamp by Parallax,Inc., BasicX, and OOPic micro controllers to be worth the price of the book alone. Gordon quickly points out the features and benefits of all these devices in comparison and loads up a dash of practical application with each.

This second edition will certainly act as an inspirational guide to all hobbyists whether your considering the next robot ready for combat, or the next best fire fighting bot. The Robot Builder's Bonanza consists of 720 pages including a complete indexed resource guide that I can highly recommend to anyone who is even the least bit curious about the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic in the making!
Gordon has outdone himself with this new edition of RBB. This is probabaly one of the most encompassing books on robotics ever. In these 750 pages, he has managed to include an in-depth coverage of almost all aspects of robotics including electonics, mechanical construction, programming, interfacing to all types of sensors, the use of the most popular motors, and very many of the microcontrollers available for robot brains. This book brings so much information together in one volume, that it makes the job of a potential robot builder vastly easier. For the newcommer to the field, there is much food for thought here. He covers much of the basics needed to get started and pulls together such a wealth of information that would otherwise take a lot of work to find (such as how to use hobby servos, how to modify them for continuous rotation, how to hack cheap Polaroid camera to use the sonar module for range measurements, etc.). If you can't find it here, you probably don't need it! For the more experienced builders, this should be a valuable reference and save you from having to search through a half dozen books to find some details of a particular sensor, construction technique, or microcontroller. Did I mention the price? This is an incredible buy! There is a lot of work and research invested in this book and anyone with a serious interest in robotics would be a fool not to own it. Look over the table of contents to get a sample of the breadth of coverage. The appendices also have a lot of useful resources such as additional books, sources for parts and Internet links. There should be a lot more little robot critters out there with the publication of this great book!

5-0 out of 5 stars A 'must' for any serious robot builder's reference shelf
This updated second edition of Gordeon McCombs' Robot Builder's Bonanza includes plenty of new plans and step-by-step instructions for building a robot, from a minibot and roverbot to a pepbot and Lego lightbots. New to this edition are insights on LEGO-based robots, fixed and mobile Servo motor systems, infrared, laser and other sensory equipment, and more. Robot Builder's Bonanza is a 'must' for any serious robot builder's reference shelf.

3-0 out of 5 stars A source of energy - not solutions!
By profession I'm a Software Engineer
(This is about the second edition)
I borrowed this book at the local library -I'm glad that I didn't buy it!

I was told that my last review suck! I agreed (too much stress) and rewrote...

Generally this book is about reusing/rearranging junk for your robot projects (this may seem like a good idea). The book covers a lot of topics - too fast in most cases and offers you only "1" solution to a problem that if you sat down and think would solve in a completely different manner.
Chapter 40: "Sound output and input" the author simply forgets that he has a uC at his disposal and combines some 555 timer IC's for a siren - indeed software is a more obvious solution.
His final output stage is a lm386 from National that can deliver approx. 0,5w. (this not even a driver stage!)

I occasionally find the components required exotic - this may however be a local problem.
Overall I'm glad that I read this book it is completely stuffed with interesting ideas - I just almost never agree with the given solution.
I was dying to read the chapter on IR communication but it only made use of an ordinary remote control. - The book's program was ONLY about the receiver. Who wants to control their robot with their tv-remote controller.
Of course you want to design your own transmitter! No theory is given so again 'your solution'. I put my tv-remote on a scope and synthesised it using an Atmel uC.

This is what dislike about the book - the lack of theory. It contains tons of ideas but you must learn about it elsewhere.
(Oh my Good, he uses BASIC!)

5-0 out of 5 stars A great update to a classic book.
I remember reading the first edition of the book and feeling disappointed, because this book showed you the various robot products that you could by, it really wasn't a tutorial that showed you how to complete a single robot from step one to finish. In many respects the second edition is written in much the same vain as the first edition. It's better to get this book if your an intermediate robot builder.

There are some many reasons why this is a good robot book, so here are three of them. First it gets you thinking and about building robots motivated me by the descriptions, second it tells you which kits or products are on the market, and finally
there are snippets of essential circuit board schematics. ... Read more

Book Description

In system design (in particular, industrial
control systems), there is, and has been, a continuous need to sense real-world analog quantities (such as temperature, pressure, or humidity), make computations with them, and then perform some action with the result. In today's systems, the computations need to be made at increased speeds and the accuracy with which the computations must be made, even as the speed increases, must be the same or higher as time progresses. The advent of the microcontroller, and its extensive use in all types of control applications, many of them battery powered, has led to new control system design approaches. Rather
than computing using analog quantities, the analog quantities are sensed, conditioned, and converted to digital, processed digitally, and then converted back to an analog output, which is then used to perform the necessary output action. This practical textbook covers the latest techniques in microcontroller-based control system design. It is aimed at engineering students and engineers new to working with microcontrollers. It covers the
fundamentals of:
1. Sensors and the electrical signals they output.
2. The design and application of the electronic circuits that receive and condition (change or modify) the sensor analog signals.
3. The design and application of the circuits that convert analog signals to digital and digital signals to analog.
4. The makeup and operation of a microcontroller and how to program it.
5. The application of electronic circuits for system power control.
The book, written by an experienced microcontroller engineer and textbook author, is suitable for community college students, technical school students, technicians and engineers just being introduced to microcontroller system design. It is an introductory book, focusing on real-world implementation of a basic control system, with real-world circuit examples. Readers will find clearly written discussion coupled with lots of illustrations. They will also find worked-out examples that illustrate principles within each chapter and quizzes to aid understanding. Besides these specifics, a hands-on project, suitable for an electronics microcontroller laboratory course, using the popular and low-cost TI MSP430 microcontroller, is discussed in detail.
The accompanying CD-ROM contains microcontrollers application notes, code for the software examples, and problem solutions.

* Seasoned Texas Instruments designer provides a ground-up perspective on embedded control systems

* Pedagogical style provides a self-learning approach with examples, quizzes and review features

* CD-ROM contains source code and more!
