Great overview book on hot subject Jun 26, 2000
I eagerly waited this book, and was not dissappointed. This book covers in 15 chapters one of the hottest topics in computer advancements - intellegent agents and their important role in future comm based systems. The first two chapters are an introduction to the subject, begining with the low level details, so each can find his/her way and feel right at home. The rest 13 chapters introduce different problems by various groups of authors and researchers and their approach to the presented problem. This book is an eye opener and provocator. I like the diversity and approch, as well as always having the pleasure of reading such excellent work. This is not a technical book, and as such is a great starting point to the exciting area of intelligent agents. If you are starting your way, or would like to have a good look around this is definately the book for you. If you want a more technical book, the "Multiagent Systems : A Modern Approach to Distributed Artificial Intelligence" by Gerhard Weiss is a better resource. But All in all, I love this book!
