really liked it

Read from July 15 to 16, 2011

The book has three kinds of chapters - crap, somewhat OK and amazing.

The bad chapters are hand-waving and nothing new or interesting, mostly fodder, but are easy to spot. The amazing on the other hand (like the one by Peter Norvig) give you some great insights and ideas what can be done, and show it very well.

Also, some people over-use the word 'beautiful' which makes them sound like a (very) bad love poem.
