Information and Measurement,
A readable introduction to the foundations and applications for information theory. The author includes a generous dose of the basic mathematical, physical and engineering concepts required and demonstrates their links. Enhanced by an appendix of BASIC and "C" program routines, topics covered are outlined in early chapters, and developed later in the book using analogies such as how CDs record and transmit sound.
