Evolutionary computation (Vol. 2. Advanced algorithms and operators)

Evolutionary computation (Vol. 2. Advanced algorithms and operators) Volume I provided the general theory of evolutionary computation. This second volume on the other hand aims at introducing the reader to more practical aspects of evolutionary computation. While i found the first volume great, this second volume lacked the details that are required to provide an intuition of the working of advanced evolutionary techniques. I feel that "How to solve it" by Michalewicz and Fogel and "Genetic algorithms + data structures = evolution programs" by Michalewicz both provide this experience useful to implement evolutionary techniques, by not trying to trade-off pages for understandability. I would not recommend this book because it tries to introduce advanced aspects that are too difficult to cover in a single chapter each. If you really want to understand the practice of evolutionary techniques, you need a good intuition of how the various operators and structures work on real problems, just reading a few pages will not do the job.
