Review:

"No matter how much you think you may know about the subject, there is something everyone can learn from this book. This book is control systems A-Z, and is the best book I have seen on the subject."
- Dave Trapasso, Senior Project Engineer, Delphi Automotive Systems

"I enjoyed reading this book. Although I have some experience in control engineering, it gave me a lot of insight into the implementation issues of drive control systems. This book is also written simply enough to be useful for self-study, even for engineers without a control system background. It covers classical approaches, as well as the recent developments in motion control. It is the most complete book on servo drive and motion control."
- Wodek Gawronski, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
