I obtained information about this wonderful book for about 4 years ago. At that time, I was doing my research for pursuing master degree in electrical engineering. I was reading the unofficial scanned version of this book when I realized that I have to buy it and re-read it by myself someday. I just obtained it two weeks ago. I am really happy to get it personally via Amazon, although it was really hard to find the new one with reasonable price.
The content of this book is easy to follow and understand. Furthermore, it provides step by step of the explained algorithm in pseudocode format. It is really helpful for students and practitioners to implement the algorithm, even though this book does not cover the implementation of algorithm in particular programming language. For example, chapter 7, "Stereopsis". This chapter is really useful in my research, since i am dealing a lot with 3D reconstruction. The authors delivered the explanation clearly, added with some diagrams and easy-to-understand mathematical formulas. At the end of the chapter, the authors pointed out some references that are useful in implementing the algorithms.
Overall, this book is recommended for student and entry-level researcher who are interested in computer vision research area. I am also wishing to both authors to re-publish this book with updated content to broaden its availability, particularly to be used as reference for teaching or research activity.

One of the best books on the topic2001年8月26日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
This is a very precise and well organized books. Every chapter is well justified and moreover each chapter contains relevant algorithms and psuedocode to address the problems discussed. This makes the book particularly practical and useful. Topics discussed follow each other naturally and the authors have done a great job of covering the topics conisely without going overboard.
More of a reference book2007年8月23日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
I was a bit disappointed by this book. It is written more like a reference book than something you can read through to learn the material. It is full of various equations with little in the way of "plain english" explanations. If you are VERY comfortable with vector math and looking at lots of equations, then this book may be a good reference. If you are looking for understanding basic concepts, then you will need to look elsewhere.
