The book is clear and concise and inspired me to try and play with computer vision again since I finished my interaction design degree. A real nice book to get your feet wet in the computer vision world. As the book doesn't comes with a tsunami of mathematics to gets you started from the beginning. Only one downside that the book doesn't really come with a image library as mentioned earlier. Full Review  >
