5.0 out of 5 stars Applications of DSP 4 Nov. 2012
By JASA - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a previous reader correctly pointed out, this book (TADSP), from Rabiner & Gold (R&G), is not a DSP book for beginners. This book was written in 1975, along with the book Digital Signal Processing from Oppenheim & Schafer (O&S), while the authors of both books - Oppenheim, Schafer, Rabiner and Gold - lived in the MIT/Bell Labs ecosystem. So, the book from R&G was to be a complement to the DSP book from O&S, which is much more focused into the fundamentals of DSP and it is a rather pedagogical text (perhaps still the most effective yet, IMHO).

TADSP from O&S has some dated chapters on Hardware for DSP, finite word length effects (an important issue back then, when processors with 8-bit words were used to implement FIR filters, and such,...) which nevertheless convey important information, such as the design of hardware for implementing FFTs. Some nice chapters are about FIR and IIR Filters, Spectrum Estimation, Speech Processing, 2-Dimensional DSP, and DSP for radar applications. I use it as a reference often. My old copy is 11th printing (I bought it used a few years ago), so TADSP has been a DSP bestseller along the years. If you want to have a snapshot of (still important) applications and "industrial" techniques of DSP when DSP was exploding and starting to influence many scientific and technological areas, you cannot go wrong with TADSP.

4.0 out of 5 stars DSP all the way ..... 20 Sept. 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had the unfortunate experiance of having this book as my first book on DSP. It is an industrial strength DSP book intended for practising engineers. It deals with the foundations of DSP in a rather cursory manner. Rabiner rushes into filters, pratical DSP tools almost in the first few chapters.
A good book for experts a bad one for beginners...
5.0 out of 5 stars I've spent many happy hours with Rabiner & Gold 6 Sept. 2015
By D. R. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A gem. A classic. I've spent many happy hours with Rabiner & Gold. It worked fine as my first serious DSP book, but for most people maybe only appropriate for the mathematically strong.
