From the reviews:
"In this interesting book, the author extends classical Shannon information theory to include the subjective element of interestingness, novelty or surprise. ... A theory of novelty and surprise is developed in this book to provide a brief and comprehensive exposition of classical information theory ... . all the chapters have exercises, and so this book can be used as an undergraduate/graduate textbook. Since each chapter contains a decent number of references ... readers can find research problems from those references." (Yuichiro Kakihara, Mathematical Reviews, July, 2013)"In this book the author introduces (subjective) notions of interestingness, novelty and surprise of messages employing probality spaces ... . The book is easy to read and does not require strong mathematical background, thus it could be used as a textbook or as material for self-study in graduate or post-graduate courses." (Jaak Henno, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1257, 2013)
