4.0 out of 5 stars Very good introduction, gave me lots to think about., 5 April 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Artificial Life (Penguin science) (Paperback)
I read it a couple of years ago and found it quite inspiring, indeed I did go one to attempt numerous different approaches discribed in the book.
More of a "history so far" (early 90's), plenty of discussion, covers lots of types.
It doesn't require a programming background to understand but still explains the various aproaches.
I wish there was a sequel.
Worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of the field., 12 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Artificial Life (Penguin science) (Paperback)
I've read this book a couple of times, it is an excellent introduction to the field. As such it is not very technical or in-depth; this is not for those looking to directy implement current ideas. Instead it gives you the broader picture, the history behind it all. Other than that, it's an excellent read - not as good as Levy's "Hackers" mind, but good enough. Check it out.
