One can tell how much effort and hard work the authors put into writing the book.
Very clean and concise text.
The book not just teaches the subject, but gives a lot of ideas on further research topics.
It might sound like the authors have been primarily concerned with SLAM and motion planning problems. The truth is that the methods they describe can be applied in many other areas, just use your brain.
Wish there were more books like that.
I have to say that the other positive reviews are well-warranted. I have not before encountered such clear explanations of Bayes filtering, Kalman Filters (including EKFs and UKFs), even in spite of having encountered many books and papers on these subjects. The authors seem to go out of their way to present the material with a logical and clear-cut progression that doesn't skip essential steps with the typical "the reader can clearly see that..." kinds of hand-waiving I have seen in other texts.
To be honest, I can't comment on the parts related to robot dynamics and SLAM, but as for chapters 1-4 and the chapters on POMDPs, I would have to say that this book presents the material in a better and more clear way than I have ever seen it presented before.
