Artificial Intelligence is a somewhat dated introduction to the subject. If you are looking for an introduction to core topics in artificial intelligence (AI), such as logic, knowledge representation, and search, this book has something to offer. However, if you want to learn about some of the newer areas of AI, such as genetic algorithms, neural networks, and intelligent agents, you will wish to select a different text.

The main problem with this book is its use of language. The book tries to explain everything in formal english. This makes the explanations extremely hard to understand without rereading it a number of times. There is no time spent in giving explanations in simpler prose or resorting to mathematical formalism wherever needed. But instead the book reads like Principia Mathematica, except that the words used are familiar English words instead of Greek symbols.
Of course, a seasoned veteran of the subject can easily make sense of most of the things in the book. But the book is designed to throw off any new student of the subject. Unfortunately the book does not even work as a handy reference for a veteran. Finding stuff in the book does require a lot of reading through difficult prose.
Overall this is a bad book, both has an introductory text book and as a reference book. If you are looking for an AI textbook: I would highly recommend Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Russel & Norvig.
