A small book that introduces key Artificial Intelligence (AI) concepts in an easy-to-read format with examples and illustrations.  A complex, long, overly mathematical textbook does not always serve the purpose of conveying the basic AI concepts to most people. Someone with basic knowledge in Computer Science  can have a quick overview of AI (heuristic searches, genetic algorithms, expert systems, game trees, fuzzy expert systems,  natural language processing, super intelligence,  etc.) with everyday examples. If you are taking a basic AI course and find the traditional AI textbooks intimidating, you may choose this as a “bridge” book, or as an introductory textbook.
