A Field Guide to Genetic Programming is an introductary level text. Therefore the authors wanted it to be as widely available as possible. In practise, this means, as affordable as possible. Also, at the start of the twenty first century, this means it must be accessible via the world wide web. To both ends, we decided to make the whole book available as a freely down loadable PDF. The PDF makes wide use of hyperlinks, both internally and externally, via the genetic programming bibliography, to the literature cited. However anticipating some would still prefer to hold the text in their hands but be unwilling to print 250 pages, we opted to use an inexpensive print on demand service offered almost at cost by lulu.
The book sold out at its launch at EuroGP and down loads past 2000 copies in less than two weeks",
