Review quote

Never before has the topic of lossless compression been so topical. That's why the recent publication of Lossless Compression Handbook,is so timely. - EMedia, The Digital Studio Magazine, May 2003

Overall, this book is a wonderful introduction and a handy reference to the topic of lossless compression. I recommend this book in the library of every working individual who is working in this area of lossless compression.
