Fascinating and inspiring,

This review is from: Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications (Paperback)
This book covers algorithms that elsewhere are treated as artificial intelligence, but here are dealt with very rapidly and in a programmer's mindset. It's great to see ideas that have been considered "academic", such as neural networks, treated as no more frightening than other algorithms such as sorting. The description of how to use live web site APIs is also a great feature of this book.
