Format:Hardcover
I first used this book as the required text for my course in ML in 1997 and got rave reviews from the students. I will be using it again in 1999. I found ALL of the major topics and issues in ML addressed. The book is easily readable with anyone with a computer science background, and the book works quite well in a wide variety of approaches to presentation at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction 26 Feb 2012
By atgh
Format:Paperback
The book covers a broad range of topics and approaches in machine learning. As a consequence, the amount of content dedicated to each topic is quite sparse. Decision Trees, Neural Networks, Bayesian Classifiers/Networks, Instance-Based Learning and Genetic Algorithms are all covered in a single book that counts under 400 pages. Since it is written in a concise and intuitive way however, it provides a solid foundation that the reader can build upon if he wishes to go deeper into any subject. Likewise, with this foundation, readers should be able to easily catch up on recent innovations (the book is quite old). Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all around good introductory book 17 May 2011
Format:Paperback
This book provides a smooth introduction to Machine Learning. It is not too math heavy and can be used easily by people with math cs background. There little golden nuggets of concentrated experience scattered around which makes it even more worthwhile for people just diving in. Each chapter is independent and straight to the point. I highly recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has proselytized me!!!! 10 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Everything I will do in the future will be based on ML and just one semester of an ML course & this book has converted me(even though my major is not Comp.Science). Of-course this is due majorly to Dr. Thomas Ioerger and his teaching abilities(Texas A&M), but the book presents all concepts(even seemingly complex ones) in a way that is easy and enjoyable to learn. One of the most useful books I've ever studied!

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete Coverage of the topic 20 May 2001
By Oli
Format:Paperback
Covers Machine Learning concepts thoroughly, allowing you to decide which type is best for any particular problem. Uses some daunting mathematical notation, but still easy to follow
