I bought the book the moment it was online on Amazon. There are a lot of choices you should make during developing a new model and you can learn the consequence of each from the father of AnyLogic. A must read for anyone who is serious about simulation and modeling using AnyLogic.
If there is a single book on simulation and modelling that covers the basics and introduces concepts in a practical manner, this is it. Yes, it is built around AnyLogic, but the aspects are universal. Great buy.
This book covers the old version of the software, so section on the rail library is almost useless. However the rest of the book is nice. If you know how to search, almost each chapter can be found online by the AnyLogic company.
