Digital Signal Processing: Principles, Algorithms, and Applications. John G. Proakis and Dimitris G. Manolakis, Prentice Hall, ISBN 0-13-373762-4.

Linear Systems and Signals. B.P. Lathi. Berkeley-Cambridge Press. Particularly good on review of complex numbers and signals and matrices and vectors (Chapter B), analog Fourier series (Ch 6) and Fourier transforms (Ch 7), sampling (Ch 8), DTFT (Ch 9), DFT (Ch 8), and z-transform (Ch 5).

DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING by Thomas J. Cavicchi. Particularly good conceptual explanations and figures describing all concepts, but not many examples how to do the computations.

ANALOG AND DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING by Ashok Ambardar. Good overview of signals (Ch 2), Fourier series (Ch 5), Fourier Transform (Ch 6,7), DFT and spectral analysis (Ch 12), z-transform (Ch 13), pole/zeros (Ch 13), filter design (Ch 14).

DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING: A COMPUTER SCIENCE PERSPECTIVE by Jonathan Y Stein. Particularly good on signals, Fourier series and Fourier transform, STFT, and z-transform.
