I bought this book on a whim. If you have no previous exposure to opencv, this book is a quick jumpstart and gives a rundown of the common features. For me, there weren't concrete examples of applications that you could work from - Packt has other books on opencv that have a number of actual projects that one could try the adapt to your own needs.
Useful starting guide to OpenCV and Raspberry Pi. I would recommend it to friends.
