                 Seminar 08051 'Theory of Evolutionary Algorithm' for
                 hosting all three authors of 'A field guide to genetic
                 programming' \cite{poli08:fieldguide}. Great progress
                 was made during our week at the castle. I hope you will
                 be please to learn that the book is now finished.

                 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",
