I wanted to buy this book, but the free sample is a scanned copy of the printed book. The quality is very bad. Not readable on my Kindle. If you want to buy, then definitely buy the printed versions. While studying at IIT-Madras, we had used this book for our B.Tech projects. That was 11 years ago.
