This book was a fun way to get my feet wet in the complex field of AI. It helped me get accustomed to the important names and landmark projects in the field. Now that I have the basics down, it made me want to read up more on other aspects of the subject. I now know what parts of AI I find interesting and I know where to continue my research. The book is filled with graphics, almost on the verge of being a comic-like style, which makes for a quick read. The only downside is that the book was originally published in 2003, so in a field like AI I would imagine a lot has happened in 6 years.
