From the reviews:

"Yorick Wilks, one of the most famous MT researchers, gives an interesting overview of the past, present, and future of MT; thus, the reader learns about the scope and limits of MT, justifying the subtitle of the book. … It could be useful to anyone working in the translation business and in NLP. Translators will learn about the historical context of MT, which will make it easier to understand its scope and limitations … . In conclusion, I do recommend this book." (K. Waldhör, ACM Computing Reviews, June, 2009)

“This book presents the author’s views and the culmination of his research in the field over the course of this period using his own previously published articles as a kind of roadmap through history, with additional afterwords supplementing most chapters bringing previous work into a more modern context. … if you are looking to skim a stone through MT’s history dipping into the extensive related work of this seasoned author, this book makes for an interesting and enjoyable read.”­­­ (Sara Morrissey, Machine Translation, Vol. 23, 2009)
