"[The book] sheds light at the intersection of evolutionary search
and robotics, with a special focus on humanoid or human-like robots. It is a
skill to hit the right spot between introducing newcomers to a concept while
also informing researchers already in the field. [The author] manages to do just
that by delivering a nice flowing, quick to read book. ... I can recommend this
book to starting graduate students in the fields of computer science and/or
robotics, or researchers looking to get started with evolutionary robotics. ...
The book’s gaze is on humanoid robotics and Eaton does a good job at defining
the terminology ... describing the various graduations of distinction between
evolutionary robotics and evolutionary humanoid robotics, thus leading the
reader to a more fundamental understanding of the levels of humanoid robots. ...
a well-written, thoroughly researched introduction ... a wonderful guide for
finding relevant references in the field. I highly recommend it for young
researchers starting out in the field of EHR [and] people interested in the
general idea of evolving robotic systems, both for humanoids and non-humanoid
robots." [Jürgen Leitner, Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines, 2015,
