Excellent practical introduction to GAs Apr 10, 2005
Well rounded and importantly, practical introduction to the subject. Gives a rapid basic understanding of the elements required, and provides all the information needed for further reading to expand knowledge in timely and appropriate places in the text.
An honest book Dec 7, 2004
A fine introduction. Well written, very, very clear... And the codes are pretty easy to understand even for beginners. I would recommend it as a first course on GAs.
Too little information, even for beginners Jun 10, 2004
This is an introductory (undergraduate level) book targeted towards practitioners. The content is far from being satisfactory, even for beginners. However, if you have only a couple of hours and you want to get some information about GAs, this book is for you. If you're looking for comprehensive coverage on the topic, I'd recommend Eiben & Smith's "Introduction to Evolutionary Computing".
Get started with GAs fast Nov 30, 1999
The best introduction to GAs for those wishing to get up and running and using such algorithms to solve real problems. The software provided seems to work well and just about anyone will understand the book. My only complaint is that the examples could have covered a better range of topics.
