I'm teaching a grad course from your book at the moment.
I like it a lot -- I think it's by far the best in the field.

Your book is excellent. This
semester is the second time that I have used it. The material seems to
be presented at just the right level and depth to accommodate the diverse
backgrounds of the Masters Degree students from several departments who
take the course.

Re. 1999 IFAC Triennial Control Engineering Textbook Prize:
The balloting was extremely close, but eventually your book
was placed on second rank. Although your book was not chosen as the final
winner, you are to be congratulated on having written such an impactful
book, and having it recognized by the nominators and the selection

This is the second time I teach a graduate course on Linear
Control using your book as a main reference. I find the book an
textbook primarily because of the many insightful physical examples
the material more vivid and intuitive while keeping the mathematics

Thank you for authoring Multivariable Feedback Control: Analysis and Design. Although this was not the required text for the course, it was clearly our favorite. Great book!

"-ize" not "-ise" is correct British (Oxford) English, as anyone with a half-descent education would know (says Inspector Morse).
The change to "-ise" is apparently a more recent change by less educated Brits :-)
This is also why Ian (a true Brit) and I (more americanized) could agree to use "optimize" and "stabilize" in our book on Multivariable Feedback control.
