From the reviews:

"The work is a brilliant survey of the different theories concerning cognition, including viewing it as a fractal phenomena … . Andrew’s greatest achievement is precisely summarizing all these mathematical works into a single book, from which readers may choose the line of research that seems more appealing to them. … I recommend this book mostly to researchers, for the utility they could grasp from it. Any student of AI who has some advanced statistical mathematics background can also benefit from this work … ." (Arturo Ortiz-Tapia, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2009)

“This new book by Alex M. Andrew has been published by Springer in the IFSR International Series on Systems Science and Engineering … . It deals with the frequently made discrepancy between the continuous and the discrete. … This book is highly recommended to researchers in artificial intelligence, cybernetics and systems science.” (Robert Vallee, Kybernetes, Vol. 39 (1), 2010)

“The book begins with an interesting perspective of the origins of cybernetics … . Each chapter has a useful summary at the end. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is very well researched, with numerous references to the literature, and to some important debates, over the last 70 years. … the book is descriptive and readily understandable. I happily recommend the book to relevant researchers in cybernetics, AI, and related fields.” (Richard Mitchell, Kybernetes, Vol. 39 (2), 2010)
