Not very useful.

By Pj on Dec 27, 2013

My professor assigned this book for a grad level math course. He only assigned reading a few sections and HW problems in the book, which is a shame, considering how much I paid for it. Anyway, I found the book to be difficult to follow, especially in view of the highly complex and confusing subject matter it tries to cover. If you think this subject matter pertains only to practical applications of matricies and linear algebra, then you are in for a very unpleasant surprise.

The book can be quite hard and confusing to follow. Not necessarily the easiest material either, but there are some good explanations for theorems, but not enough examples to show how to utilize those theorems.

Not the best book for first timers

End of the semester now, after spending more than 200 hours with this book, I'd like to edit my review. I think it seriously needs a revision. The organization of topics are good, the book covers all the theories you need to learn but it does not have enough number of examples to make one understand how they are implemented. In my point of view, it is definitely not your book if it's your first time in linear system theory and design.
