Not this general kind of AI coverage, but I've read a number of books in data mining and some specialized aspects of AI such as Bayes nets and NLP. It compares very favorably in terms of presentation quality; I am not aware of another book this broad which was potentially worth reading based on my "information olfactory sense" (I'd like to hear of one if anyone has a suggestion) .

Yeah, I've found a couple others since I made the above comment in January 2011, too.
