How do you learn Solomonoff Induction?

I read about a fascinating technique described on Wikipedia as a mathematically formalized combination of Occam's razor and the Principle of Multiple Explanations. I want to add this to my toolbox. I'm dreaming of a concise set of actionable instructions for using Solomonoff induction. I realize this wish might be overly idealistic. I'm willing to peruse a much more convoluted tome and will consider making time for any background knowledge or prerequisites involved.

If anyone knows of a good book on this, or can tell me what set of information I need to acquire, please let me know. It would be much appreciated!
