Two of the best books for teaching Bayesian networks are

  • Michael Jordan, “Introduction to Graphical Models”, in preparation
  • Daphne Koller and Nir Friedman, “Bayesian Networks and Beyond”, in preparation.

In preparation !@#. For eons now, these books have been “in preparation”. Civilizations have come and gone. Many courses in many universities have used these books in preliminary form as their primary text. Why are these authors so laid back! Do they live in Frank Capra’s Shangrila, where people live thousands of years, and don’t need to hurry much. Hmm, Jordan at Berkeley, Koller at Stanford. California…Shangrila. It seems that, for the time being, these gem books will be available only to surfer dudes, not to us hard working Yankees on the other coast.

Update (Sept 9, 2009)
Wow, 1200 pages! I take back all I said about Californian’s being laid back. Check out

Principles and Techniques
