A Message to Readers

  • Balakrishnan Chandrasekaran

Abstract

A few weeks after my appointment as Book Reviews editor, I started receiving a large number of books from AAAI, books that have been accumulating since the last reviewer stepped down. As I was going through them, I thought, "So many books, so few pages." AI Magazine is not a publication exclusively devoted to books, such as the New York Review or the weekly book review supplements of major newspapers. At best, it can devote a few pages each issue to book reviews. Also, it doesn't appear that frequently, just four issues a year. Given these constraints, how can the magazine best serve its readership?
