"Expert Systems" is a great tutorial of the C based open source expert system shell CLIPS. It even contains patterns of usage. This part alone is worth the read of this rather expensive book. Also some nice examples of expert systems are programmed in a very instructive way. I liked the implementation of a system with certainty factors (MYCIN style) and the developer implementation of backward chaining in CLIPS (an only forward chaining shell).
The first half of the book is a very thorough overview of expert systems. For each introduced concept the book names nearly all known terms to describe this very concept. For an introduction it is extremely important to name only the most common term and then after some time maybe one or the other more.
Reasoning and reasoning with uncertainty is well covered. Each chapter has ample references. Here again a little more orientation would have been very helpful.
The book itself is nicely bound and printed. It is a pleasure to look at and a little heavy to hold for a long time.
I fully recommend the CLIPS part and I do recommend the general expert systems part as a second or better third book on this topic.
