From the reviews:
"This collection serves as a thorough record of where we are now and provides some nice pointers for where we need to go. It is a great resource containing valuable reference material, helpful summaries of findings, further-reading sections, and a useful appendix on resources... Even though the book is tailored for those new to the field, veteran WSD researchers will find the collection makes good reading with plenty of material and discussions that do not appear elsewhere." (Diana McCarthy, COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS, volume 33, number 2)
