Reviews - What do customers think about Fuzzy Logic for Beginners?
huge disapointment May 13, 2007
I am an engineer and have read a lot of books on science, math and of course engineering. But I have never read a book this bad in English. Apparently, translator's mother tongue is not English. I am inclined to blame the publisher who publishes a book without checking the credential of the translator. My recommendation is: do not waist your money on this book.
This book says nothing! Jul 23, 2006
I agree with Mr. Lentini. If you want to learn something about fuzzy logic - look for some other book. This is actually a booklet that only characterizes Fuzzy Logic in a very childish manner. The translator is an utter ignorant: Leibnitz is called "Ripunitz" and Aristole is "Alistoter" or something like that (probably following the Japanese transcription...). Even 1 cent is a waste for it.
Its for beginners, it says so in the title. Jan 6, 2006
While I would agree that the text of the book is a poor translation from the original Japanese (my guess is they waved it in the general direction of an editor while he was distracted) and there is not much in the way of technical depth to the book, it seems to me to very nicely and concisely capture the spirit of the "Fuzzy" movement.
All in all I think its a great introduction if you are wondering what all this fuzzy nonsense is about anyway, but don't plan on reading it twice.
Don't Waste Your Time May 9, 2005
I had hoped to get a concise introduction to fuzzy logic from this book. But the author only discusses fuzzy logic at the highest level, not much more deeply than most newspaper and magazine articles. The original text was clearly written in Japanese, and the translation is among the worst I've dealt with in the science and mathematical subjects.
In short, apply the money you would spend for this book to one that is more expensive but actually useful. Just accept that getting to know fuzzy will not be cheap!
Fuzzy Translation for Logic Beginners Jul 31, 2001
I found this text to be a satisfactory introduction to the principles of Fuzzy Logic. I don't think that the book presents the relevant information to developing a fuzzy system, but rather tries to excite the viewer with useless examples of fuzzy systems.
It did answer and explain in detail fuzzy logic and the history behind the controversial mathematical concept. To predict the characteristic of something based on a table of measured values is something whose problem lies in the implementation of such a process. It would take a good amount of testing to find how much torque is needed to counteract the steering in commuter trains. The previous sentence was one of the examples used in the text.
