Now that I've got your attention, there are a couple things I'd like to mention about the book reviews in the IAPR Newsletter:


Book Authors - I request that authors of newly published books in pattern recognition and related fields please inform me of this so a review can be written for the Newsletter.


Potential Book Reviewers—Again, I find that I have a backlog of books that need to be reviewed, and I would appreciate experts in areas related to the books' topics to offer to review these. I will send the book to reviewers, and you will be able to keep the book. If you think you might like to review a book, but need more information, just go to the web site of the publisher or a web book seller.  Below are some of the books I'd appreciate help reviewing:


¨ Rippling: Meta-Level Guidance for Mathematical Reasoning (Cambridge University Press Tracts in Theoretical Computer Science Series) by Alan Bundy, David Basin, Dieter Hutter, Andrew Ireland (Hardcover - Aug 8 2005)

¨ Prediction, Learning, and Games (Cambridge University Press) by Nicolo Cesa-Bianchi and Gabor Lugosi (Hardcover - Mar 13, 2006)

¨ Applied Combinatorics on Words (Cambridge University Press, Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications Series)  by M. Lothaire (Hardcover - Jul 25, 2005)

¨ Information Theory, Inference & Learning Algorithms (Cambridge University Press) by David J. C. MacKay (Hardcover - Jun 15, 2002)
