This is an excellent book on genetic algorithms and neural networks.
I have studied neural nets and GA, but this is the most interesting book I've read so far. It is written in such a way, that you can follow even if you have a limited (A-level) maths background. The author gives a fair programming and math explanations where needed.
If you do have a high level of programming/math background, it is easy to skip the relevant chapters.

I've bought 'Speed Reading' and 'Using your Memory' by Tony Buzan, and I found that they help quite a lot.
I was disappointed to find that this book simply summarises the content of his other books. Tony doesn't even go into much depth about any of the subjects of memory and reading.
If you have any of Buzan's books don't buy this one.
If you are new to the subject, you won't be displeased - his methods actually work.

Very simplistic designs. If you are looking for a challenging design, look somewhere else.
The book is in black and white, and therefore lacks colour suggestions. Which also hints that most of these designs were never implemented on glass - they're just designs
However, if your collection lacks traditional designs, this is the one for you.
