(Mitchell, 1998) this was a great introductory book. it is a quick read and has very little math. the 1st chapter gives you the basics when describing some examples of how GA has been used in the past. chapter 2 gives some more examples of GA and takes it slightly further just into the real of Genetic Programming. 3 steers more toward Artificial Life and to how GA might be used to look at our own world. 4 goes into more detail and 5 explains some of the decisions to be made when implementing a GA. the final chapter is just a couple pages about the future of GA.
