Very nice book! I have been teaching this book for a couple of semesters in a graduate level course. I am finding all chapters very consistent in their approach to form up the whole field. It covers modern topics such as RVMs found hardly in classical texts. The book goes beyond such traditional coverages in the final chapters and exposes the reader into more advanced topics such as variational pattern recognition techniques. It is also nicely supported by helpful sample data sets with solutions to selected problems at each chapter.
