Editorial Reviews

Review

An academic dynasty has come together to write an excellent textbook on information retrieval. Stefan Büttcher, Charles Clarke, and Gordon Cormack make up three generations of stellar information retrieval researchers with over fifty years of combined experience...This book is a must-read for all search academics and practitioners!

(from the foreward by Amit Singhal)

This book is a fine addition to the growing literature on information retrieval (IR).

(Donald H. Kraft Computing Reviews)

This book is very well organized and covers all the issues associated with information retrieval very well. It is not a light book, I plan on going back and reading it again after a first pass. I am reading this book concurrently with Lucene in Action by Michael McCandless and it is cool to see how the theory is applied in practice.Lucene in Action, Second Edition: Covers Apache Lucene 3.0 I am returning to relearn IR and this book is making it fun.

The authors assume readers will hold a degree in computer science, computer engineering, software engineering and be familiar with analysis of algorithms and time complexity. Sadly, that is not me. I wouldn't know a probability mass function from a communion wafer; but, I nevertheless found the concepts explained in lucid ways that my lawyer brain could grasp, and the splendid organization allowed me to progress much further than my liberal arts background should allow. This is fine book, and a surprisingly engaging read. If you are not comfortable with such things, you may find the complex equations later in the book to be daunting; but, don't despair. The prose is clear and the examples offered easy to understand. Information retrieval is the lifeboat that will keep us from drowning in a growing sea of data. It's worth the effort to fathom.

Great book, it actually is more on the data/storage/indexing side than Manning's Information Retrieval (which is more on the NLP side), but that what I like about it, it nicely complements Manning. If you are coming to IR from databases, read this one first, if you are coming from NLP read Manning's first, but read them both (i.e. don't be fooled in thinking you can get away with just getting one and not the other).

This book arranges lots of equations on information retrieval. But I rather think, the book Search Engines Information Retrieval in Practice is a little bit better than this...

Not Brilliant.
