"It's a reference packed with tools for analyzing images, and is a 'must' for any basic programming library."
--James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review: The California Bookwatch, The Computer Shelf, September 2012, Volume 7, Number 9

"If computer vision intrigues you--and it should!--I recommend PCVwP highly. It's fun, hands-on, and covers a remarkable amount of ground in its brisk 10 chapters."
