    Comments about oreilly Machine Learning:

    I wants to learn Machine Learning using WEKA but I have no prior knowledge on AI and Machine Learning.
    This book is a very good introductory book on Machine Learning. It's clear and easy to read, and the examples of WEKA are simple and they work.
    I recommend this book to beginners of Machine Learning.
