Probably this is the best book for haptics algorithms.
However, it doesn't have much discussions on sensors & actuators.
I feel like it is NOT intro-level book, because it sometimes uses advanced method without the basics.
For intro-level textbook in haptics, I suggest "Haptics for Virtual Reality and Teleoperation" by Mihelj & Podobnik.
