Author: Frank Exner
This introduction to elementary signal processing connects theory and application, and bridges instruction between a book and a CD-ROM packed with video, software and more. The result is a unique, non-mathematical learning system using concepts drawn from modern brain research. Readers use the popular DasyLab metrology and control engineering program to develop applications. Processing of real signals is enabled via the sound card and the parallel port. Two hundred pre-programmed signal engineering systems and design transparencies are provided on the CD-ROM. There are numerous videos, more than 250 photos, and - most important – all "living" experiments and their results are visualized.

Ed Fox II
Author: Dian Hanson
Curves from top to toe: The modern master of foot photography Ed Fox thought he was the only young man who checked out a woman's feet before her face, and most of the time couldn't meet his models' eyes for fear they'd discern his secret. Then he became the official foot photographer for Leg Show magazine, and learned of the thousands of men just like himself and the glorious legacy of foot fetish photographers before him, not least the great Elmer Batters. Since then, Fox has become famed the world over for his sensual photographic style that captures every curve of a woman's body, right down to the tips of her toes. In Ed Fox II he brings us voluptuous new models, arresting locations--many blending the desert landscapes of Southern California with Fox's passion for automobiles--and fantasies mild to extra spicy, all shot in warm, caressing natural light. And, like Glamour From the Ground Up, Ed Fox II comes with a 60-minute original DVD, bringing the still photos to vibrant life. This edition's special Panic Cover is reversible to a realistic-looking academic book to keep the real contents hidden from your annoying boss or even help you impress an attractive onlooker!
