From the reviews:
"This edited book is ... designed to provide introductions to topics in search methodology. ... The chapters are well-written, accurate and carefully presented and provide a good exposition of each of the topics. ... Although aimed at PhD students, and I would certainly recommend the book to them and to supervisors, this volume should prove very useful to a wider audience ... . It provides an excellent introduction to a large set of techniques in search methodology and is a pleasure to read." (JM Wilson, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 58 (3), 2007)
