The Science of Imaging Reviews


"A useful book that fills a gap in the range of publications on this topic. The book is full of useful, accurate information and diagrams at a very affordable price in a well produced volume." -- Mr Sidney Ray "All in all I found this a truly valuable book, magnificently bringing together such diverse technologies, yet keeping a practical eye on who is likely to be reading it. It's the best book I have read on the subject at this level." -- Ron Grahm, RPS Journal "The book is well written in a refreshing, colloquial style, with lots of helpful marginal notes . . . So if your research depends on obtaining and analysing top-quality images, this book should prove to be an invaluable practical guide and reference source." -- Matin Durrani in Physics World "There is no better way of summarising The Science of Imaging other than to say that every student should read it, every photographer should own it, and every lecturer and journalist should know its contents inside out. -- Jon Tarrant in British Journal of Photography, 11 December 2002 "On a personal note I have been rather impressed by the work. It surveys a broad, complex and rapidly changing subject succinctly, yet at a useful and appropriate level." -- Gordon Ridley, Glasgow College of Building and Printing "Given the wide range of potential audience, the author has on the whole made a very fair attempt to judge an appropriate level both of assumed prior knowledge and of scientific competence and understanding, and the 'further reading' suggestions will accommodate the inevitable variances in these . . . Overall, this reviewer is delighted that the author had the courage to attempt the very daunting task pf presenting his illuminatingaccount of what must be in effect a lifetime's interest in such a wide range of exciting phenomena and technical achievements." -- Philip Bradfield in Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, vol. 3, issue 2
