5.0 out of 5 stars It might be called "THE" book
Although I do not recommend this book as a first one (because the material is too much dense for a begginer), it undoubtedly is a "must" in any set of books if you intend seriously working inside this area. Nilsson has a clear writing and (if you have some background) it's a pleasure to follow him even through hard topics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Terse, Compact and Fast
This is generally a good book with an effective unifying theme. However, each chapter is very dense, terse and presents complex material very quickly. This would not be my recommendation for a first book on AI. Author assumes the reader has a lot of preliminary informatin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good starter overview of Artificial Intelligence, 15 Jan 2010
By 
A. Duncan (Devon, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This book covers a broad (almost comprehensive?) range of topics loosely aggregated under the heading "AI".
It is not intended for those wanting to research any particular AI discipline in detail, but provides a "leg-up" to those setting out in their studies of AI.
The review of neural networks (chapter 3) (of particular interest to me) is brief, covers salient maths for layered feedforward networks and backpropagation during supervised training, but does not cover recurrent networks or unsupervised learning (even for layered networks).
I would recommend this book for undergraduate students and those interested in a technical general treatment of AI.
