This book changed the way I think about adaptation. Profoundly useful.

The book is a difficult read with some fairly difficult mathematical definitions and only limited examples. I was hoping for a closer tie with actual subsets of genes and proteins that could illustrate his PAC models. Cited though not really explored was Bayesian learning. (apriori knowledge used to help aposteriori knowledge) e.g. as it applies to the brain as it economizes and optimizes muscle coordination. However, the book's well-researched presentation seems as complete as the author chose to take it.
