The author, Dr. Sean Luke, is a professor of computer science at George Mason University. The book is a compilation of notes, originating from teaching an undergraduate course on metaheuristics, nicely edited and presented. Dr. Luke uses a pseudo-code notation to support his description of each of about 150 algorithms covering a broad range of applications including searching, sorting, optimization, genetic algorithms, and combinatorics.
The code is language-independent and can easily be translated into the reader's language of choice. The descriptions are written in a very approachable and informal manner. I can easily imagine being a student in Dr. Luke's classes and enjoying every minute as he explains with knowledge and enthusiasm.
