Reviews

"In this slim, nontechnical, very well-written, and thought-provoking book, Schoenhoff explores the possibility and desirability of using computerized expert systems in the Third World (or, the South) of developing, non-Western countries. . . . As it is so brief and so cogent, this work is recommended highly for libraries to bring a broader human perspective to the currently 'hot' subject of expert systems. All levels." - Choice
