"Professor Ian McLoughlin, a researcher and an educator, has produced a comprehensive and a complete book on speech and audio signal processing that includes many examples and exercises. This is an authoritative book that covers both basic principles and a wealth of advanced and emerging topics … The concepts are clearly explained and the chapters are organized well with introductions that lead to deeper analysis of topics covered in those chapters."
