Reviewed in the United States on July 9, 2020
This is an OK book considering the many others that are available.

As to whether it is "accessible to a lay reader", consider the following description of a support vector machine from chapter 1. Note terms such as "hyperplane" and "feature space" which are not explained anywhere in this "self contained" book.

Support Vector Machines: A support vector machine is another supervised-learning technique, one that divides data into classes according to which side of a hyperplane in feature space each data point lies.
