"The book is user-friendly, accurate...and will be very useful to anyone with a basic understanding of circuit theory?" (Annals of Biomedical Engineering, June 2006) "This reviewer will find this text a valued part of his library for the several areas extremely well elucidated. And talking with a few colleagues, the reviewer confirmed that this text will have wide appeal?" (Biomedical Instrumentation & Technology, July/August 2005) "?details this application's unique requirements and constraints, exploring with general discussion, schematic diagrams, representative waveforms, and typical-design photos."
