It is indeed an outstanding book. I have been using a prepublication draft
for some time, and have gotten a lot of use out of it, both personally and
as handouts (with the publisher's permission of course) in the AI Programming
class I teach at Johns Hopkins. It is, IMHO, by far the best advanced LISP and
AI Programming text on the market.

The code, by the way, is on unix.sri.com, in /pub/norvig.
