Hello, I wanted to ask around for a good book recommendation for learning more about CV and openCV. I have already read the reviews on Amazon and have narrowed it down to three books that are mentioned on opencv:

  1. A Practical Introduction to Computer Vision with OpenCV
  2. OpenCV Essentials
  3. Learning OpenCV Computer Vision in C++ with the OpenCV Library

I am new to programming (ordered a beginners guide to C++) and CV so I am really looking for some project ideas from the book and a step by step explanation of the code. The more basic the better. I am not looking for any deep explanation behind the math (I am a Chem E and have had enough of that already). I have already created some projects from reading the tutorials on opencv and some on youtube and it seems fun so far. With that said please let me know which book I should purchase if you have used one of them. BTW, I am doing this as a hobby...
