Extremely helpful and very readable. Just finished skimming this wonderful book I say I skimmed it since I read parts of it in detail, whereas I could only eye other parts of it There were things in it that I knew before and I read them curiously There were things in it that I knew before and I didn t read them thinking that my versions of concepts were well formed.There were things in it that I did not know and I read them eagerly There were things in it that I did not know before and I deferred reading them for a better day.T Just finished skimming this wonderful book I say I skimmed it since I read parts of it in detail, whereas I could only eye other parts of it There were things in it that I knew before and I read them curiously There were things in it that I knew before and I didn t read them thinking that my versions of concepts were well formed.There were things in it that I did not know and I read them eagerly There were things in it that I did not know before and I deferred reading them for a better day.The writers have done a great job at explaining what goes in developing artificial intelligence AI for games Algorithms for pathfinding, movement, decision making, and strategy are really profound and interesting Why and when we need each of the feats is also explained pretty well.However, the reader begins to put everything in context when he reaches the twelfth chapter Here only realizes in a systematic way that what really goes in developing AI for games Rest of the earlier stuff begins to make sense So the best way to read this book is to skim it up to the twelfth chapter in a first pass Once you have reached there, you would have to make some connections with the dots Dots are always connected backward, so start reading it back again, and you will find it quite awe inspiring.I call it wonderful because it indeed is quite wonderful And quite insightful as well Reading this book straight through was a slog however, when I got to the end and read about the different game genres and their uses of AI I was happy to recognize most of the different techniques by name and to know something about them.I feel that this book was a worthwhile investment I feelconfident moving on to other AI books I also have a reference that I can come back to with confidence should I need it.I didn t read any of the C examples as don t much know C and don t particu Reading this book straight through was a slog however, when I got to the end and read about the different game genres and their uses of AI I was happy to recognize most of the different techniques by name and to know something about them.I feel that this book was a worthwhile investment I feelconfident moving on to other AI books I also have a reference that I can come back to with confidence should I need it.I didn t read any of the C examples as don t much know C and don t particularly want to learnjust yet This is by far one of the most comprehensive books on Practical Artificial Intelligence and I have read many If you have a strong foundation in programming, this book will take you very far. This is a large comprehensive book but it doesn t explain difficult things well enough.
