From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book literally covers everything you ever wanted to know about the design and technology behind CCDs. Well written and informative, the book is littered with technical diagrams and useful equations for anyone interested in either developing their own CCD device or writing image processing algorithms and plug-ins. Not only that … this is a book that every university undergraduate studying instrumentation should probably have on their bookshelf." (Nick Howes, Astronomy Now, January, 2009)

"McLean … provides an excellent primer for those with a technical interest in these amazing devices. … the book is a compendium of astronomical methods and instrumentation. … McLean’s book … would be an excellent college-level resource. In fact, it should be on the shelf of anyone who wants a firm technical background in astronomical methods and instrumentation. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (T. D. Oswalt, Choice, Vol. 46 (7), March, 2009)

"This is the second edition of a book whose purpose is to explain the workings of electronic detectors and instruments. … This ambitious book is in part an attempt to provide an overview of just what your strange-looking instrument is doing. … this is an excellent book, packed with information and written in a clear and accessible style which will make it invaluable to any student or supervisor. Highly recommended." (Paul O’Brien, The Observatory, Vol. 129 (1210), June, 2009)
