(by Anderson and Rosenfeld, 1998) subtitled 'An Oral History of Neural Networks'. this book was a quick read that interviewed 16 of the big names in NN. each person had their own chapter, and the chapters were ordered based on the birth dates of these people. i found this odd, but it did end up revealing an understandable timeline of the past. the problem with the book is that it went too far into the past. even though the publish date is late 90s, most of the events being discussed happened much earlier. also, the people discussed too much about their childhood and what led them into NN. the good part is that it was somewhat interesting, and each chapter had at least 1 line or paragraph that i consider gems
