The book is solidly written; however, I do feel there is a slight misrepresentation when the book states it is good for beginning photogrammetry. If you are familiar with photogrammetry, the book is a useful reference and provides details on a variety of relevant topics. However, individuals with no knowledge of the topic will find many of the topics unclear,with the authors presuming the reader knows information not presented in the book. There are a large quanitity of formulas presented; however, there are errors in some of the formulas and often, the formulas are not completely explained. If you are not familiar with upper level math concepts like linear algebra, trig and calculus,following how the solutions were derived may be frustrating.If this is a field you are interested in pursueing, the book may be worth getting. If you are more interested in an overview of photogrammetry, this is probably not the best fit.

Very good for understanding the photogrammetry issue

This book is a compact improvement over the previous editions. It is readily comprehrnsible
