This book is loaded with examples in which computer scientists and engineers have used evolutionary computation - programs that mimic natural evolution - to solve many real-world problems. They aren't abstract, mathematically intensive papers, but accounts of solving important problems, including tips from the authors on how to avoid common pitfalls, maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the search process, and many other practical suggestions.

From the reviews:

"`Evolutionary Computation in Practice' ... focuses on real-world challenges and on technology transfer from academia to industry. It is of interest to everyone working on machine learning. ... is well-written, easy to read and provides a comprehensive coverage of the field. ... This enables the appropriate and successful use of EC. It inspires academic researchers by demonstrating the value of their work, and guides them in their development of EC. It is an excellent contribution to the Studies in Computational Intelligence series." (Larry M. Deschaine, Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines, Vol. 9, March, 2008)
