Industry Reviews

"The most important thing I found in this book is the selection of topics. I should say Dr. Bridger gave the foremost emphasis on the inclusion of specific topics for future students and researchers who may be interested to contribute the knowledge in the betterment of the society. So, the interesting part of this book, in each chapter there is a section where the author identifies the integration of specific topic with its system component.
I am definite, in near future, this book will be treated as the most dependable text book for students and at the same time as the most helpful guide for researchers."
- Somnath Gangopadhyay, University of Calcutta, India
