LOL—looks like someone misunderstood the purpose of trademark designations. And I don't know what the heck "Socket" is either.

the author's abstraction layer? :shrug:

Bet on it. No doubt comes on an included DVD. Get it now and we'll also throw in a free Shawn Cassidy poster!

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's an abstraction layer, which is slightly worrying since I see very little point in readers learning a system that nobody else uses. If it has a restrictive license then that will be bad news.

If you want to get somewhere in the software development world, you should pretty much consider "theory-heavy digital signal processing book" nice and relaxing change compared to the usual documentation deciphering process.

Seriously, the whole concept of "not theory-heavy" suggest a target audience in the "not going to get anywhere" group. In financial terms, that's probably the more rewarding audience... but still: this is C++ where a single bad pointer access can bring the whole application down.. not exactly the environment where you skip the theory. :P

Note that I'm not suggesting everyone in the "other group" is going to love super-heavy theory. I'm just point out that if you want to get things done, you probably don't really care how boring it is. Rather you just want to minimize the time spent.

The title looks very promising. But then you may open the book and see it is either:
1) Too theory heavy.
2) Too simple.
3) Just some mess (as with audio programming book (just my thought))

I would be happy if the author allows a preview on amazon, then considering it would be easier.

Do you mean "The Audio Programming Book" by Boulanger and Lazzarini? Overall I thought it was a good introduction to the topic, and I enjoyed reading it. It comes packed with tons of stuff that includes much supplementary material on the DVD.

It is frought with typos that caused me much confusion on several occasions though. Every coefficient formula for the Butterworth and LP/HP filters it gives are way off! :shock: I had to go to Dodge & Jerse to get the right ones. :love:
