I'm currently reading Computational Molecular Evolution by Yang. Can you recommend alternatives to this book?

I am finding it to be lacking on conceptual discussion (it's more focussed on the mathematics and statistical intricacies). I'd like to find something which discusses why we do the things, and the strengths and weaknesses of the ideas, in the Yang book whilst not being overly specialist - more of an introductory text to the field.

I would suggest the course of Coursera.org:

Computational Molecular Evolution

By Anders Gorm Pedersen

Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

PS: Do tell us if you found a better book!
