5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any game designer., 28 Jun 2011
This review is from: Programming Game AI by Example (Wordware Game Developers Library) (Paperback)
I've bought this book along with AI Techniques for game programming - which I only later found are by the same author. It's been the best bang for the buck I've had in a long time.
The book is well written, clear and thorough both in the theory and the application of the various techniques it shows. The author takes pains to explain the math, to keep it simple and down to earth while avoiding oversimplification: math of pathing and steering can be tough even for the well versed, yet mr.Buckland succeeds in making it understandable and clear.
Giving examples and practical applications of the techniques helps a lot in making them "real things" and in allowing the reader to experiment and expand on them to understand better.
He manages to make even the relatively counter intuitive methods of fuzzy logic easy to grip and master.

Two thumbs up, a must have.
