An excellent introduction to Prolog programming.: This book is clear and well written. Its an excellent first book on Prolog programming. It also takes you far into the subject, up to a point where you should be able to write useable Prolog programs.

Much more clearly written than "Programming in Prolog" Prolog by Clocksin and Mellish, and it covers the same ground.

Prolog is not for everyone. You have to be quite intelligent to be able to use it effectively. And its not a general-purpose language

Great book for showing many different applications of Prolog. I wish I could also praise its exercises and the pedagogical effort spent on them, but beware, because there's no gradual build-up of difficulty. It's more like throwing you into to the sea of a very different programming paradigm and saying "swim or drown".
