Yes, the same. Today rule-based systems are being used for everything from processing business rules to mail filtering to order configuration, monitoring chemical plants, diagnosing medical problems, loan application processing, and more. Very often in the A.I. field, as soon as something works and has practical applications, people stop considering it A.I.; that's certainly the case with rule-based programming.

1) Yes, it contains a full description of the Jess rule language.
2) No, not especially. It talks about using one (Jess), not writing your own. There is some discussion of how Jess is implemented.
3) No. Like lots of things, it's been overhyped.
4) That's an academic textbook on A.I. in general. "Jess in Action" is a practical handbook for building real software using Jess. They're pretty much completely unrelated.

Does your book include puzzles which can be solved by JESS.

There is indeed one word puzzle, at the beginning of the book. There are several more in the "examples" directory that comes with the Jess distribution.
