I Needed It

The book is an informational book for executives and does get the skinny very quickly. They even point out societal flaws that seemingly can be fixed with a bit of research and application.

wesome Audiobook

This book is very well researched and thoughtfully written. In a time of quick start guides with slim content, Applied AI is faithful to its title. I found that I could read section separately, which also accelerated the benefits I was able to achieve in my consulting services.

Poor Performance

Given this is only 3.5 hours I really tried to give this a full go since I am interested in the topic. The reader choice was just awful though. It sounds like you are listening to a computer reading the book. If this was intentional, it was a bad decision. After an hour I had to just give up.

Its really Nice

I found this book a bit too high level. If you are familiar with the topic, there's very little that you can learn. However overall I find it useful to have a complete overview of the topic

This book made me realize how little I actually knew about AI. Which is embarrassing because I live in the Silicon Valley which is AI Central. Thanks for schooling me on the basics.

Very Much Informative

This book is an excellent introduction to the growing world of AI. It is written in a language understandable by anyone not an expert in the field. It should be read by every manager in every organization operating today that are not having a deeper knowledge of AI. Well done!
