I've even been known to give this book as a gift (for the electrical engineer that doesn't have everything). Something that I have observed about superior explainers over the years, is that if they really know the subject, then they can explain it to almost anyone. Widrow invented the subject and can see it with his mind's eye and more importantly can give you the vision. He reduces the dynamics to a marble seeking the bottom of a bowl. In fact, he helps you become the marble and the bowl. I have attended many seminars and short classes over the years at UCLA. Widrow's was the only one where we gave the lecturer a standing ovation. Before I read this book, adaptive filtering was a mystery and the LMS algorithm looked like a programming nightmare. It looked like more Kalman filtering. My eyes have been opened. The LMS algorithm for adaptive filtering is almost as simple as Tit for Tat is for game theory. This is the gateway text to understand adaptive filtering, adaptive arrays (help the navy find the rogue submarine), adaptive equalization (design the next generation of modem), adaptive control (say goodbye to overshoot), adaptive prediction (beat the stock market). Furthermore, it leads naturally into the artificial intelligence techniques. If you are an engineer or a programmer, you should have this tool in your toolbox.
