There are many introductory books to the field of NLP and some are better than others. Some of the best books that have been written were written in the early days of NLP, back in the 1970's and 1980's. But it is now 2012 and despite the original genius of these books it now being undermined by the passage of time and the new discoveries in the field that simply cannot be reflected in those out-dated texts.
