In this update to the 2004 edition, Henderson (Modern Robotics) includes 180 new definitions, including "blogging," "Youtube," and "data mining," to keep pace with more recent developments. The A-to-Z entries run from several paragraphs to two pages in length and provide highly accessible, jargon-free explanations of hardware, software, programming language, notable figures, crucial inventions, and hotly debated civil-liberties issues in a field outpacing legislation. One of the most user-friendly and enlightening books for field outsiders, this handy volume promotes clear understanding of a complex subject. Highly recommended.
