"It is a great book, very well written, that presents solid content in a very rigorous theoretical and practical way and provides an excellent methodological guide to the area of computational intelligence --one that could be qualified as a 'must' for the library of any student, professor, researcher or professional in that area." (Jos Luis Verdegay, Mathematical Reviews, May, 2017)
