Peter Norvig gives us an amazing collection of Lisp programs solving real-world AI problems. I must confess I skimmed some of the more esoteric parts of the book, such as the natural language processing, or implemeting Prolog in Lisp, but other parts (especially the one about an Othello-playing program) I found deeply fascinating--especially as I've myself tried to write a game-playing program in Lisp (https://github.com/dlindelof/saikoro.git)

Although this book includes a primer on Lisp, it is b

There are parts of this book I would give 5 stars too, parts that only get a 2. I will give it 3.5 stars overall (4 I guess since I can't give .5). I read this right after the SICP book, which is a solid 5 stars. SICP was full of insight, history and head nodding confirmations of stuff I have believed for a long time about the structure of programs. The Knuth books also give me that warm fuzzy kind of programming euphoria that SICP does, I just didn't get as much of that from Paradigms of Artifi ...more

I can't say enough good things about this book. Although Lisp is in the title, don't let that put you off. This book is really about logically structuring your code and clarity of reasoning. Working through the early AI examples such as Eliza is a thoroughly enjoyable journey of learning.

Essential for Lispers. Another "missing manual" for Common Lisp.

Forever a classic programmer's guide to LISP and AI. This book, while dated, is a guide to understanding the principles of AI programming.

Surprisingly basic and outdated book

Intro into Common Lisp with overview of specific outdated use cases. This book does not cover high level difficulties in AI development, falling back to description of historically significant AI projects, that are not representative of the field anymore and are covered on a very basic level.

Most of the AI is GOFAI, i.e. mainly concerned with search and symbol manipulation. In my mind the best part of the book is the Lisp itself -- Norvig is a great programmer and writer.
