This is a very clear introduction to neural networks. Unlike many other such texts which claim to explain ANNs, this book shows the actual figures and theorems, which are very clearly elucidated, including the mathematical symbols used. This means you can see what each layer of the network actually does, instead of being told 'it's a black box'. It is enjoyable to read as well as being practical. Nicely illustrated.
