I haven't seen the FAQ, is there one? As far as books, I read
Fuzzy Logic by Daniel McNeill and Paul Freiberger
ISBN 0671875353
This gave an interesting overview of the field. No math, just some
accomplishments and major arguments/topics. It's a pleasant read, and helps
to give a perspective on the realm.
An Introduction to Fuzzy Logic for Practical Applications
by Kazuo Tanaka, trans. Tak Niimura
ISBN 0387948074
This is a quick view of the math involved along with several example
systems. It is about 200 pages and every bit is packed with useful, easy to
understand information. If you are a programmer, and you have this book, I
doubt that you would have trouble putting together a simple fuzzy system in
a short period of time.
