    Read this book a long time ago I am not going to leave a proper review just a video that elegantly explains some of the mathematical spookiness of chaos theory and the mandelbrot set and will stir in you some mathematical paranoia Math is rigged folkshttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvovJcs

    My interest in chaos theory and butterfly effect has been purely philosophical I guess the idea of alternate reality always intrigues me May be fueled by its implication in popular culture movies or books First time when I r

    I enjoyed this uick read though in the end I did not like CHAOS very much It is a breezy history of two decades of mostly disconnected work done by a number of different researchers in widely divergent areas of science In an apparent coincidence a small number of unrelated people became interested in studying ap

    When reading science books it's difficult to know whether what you're reading is current or not Gleick's book was first published in 1987 so I imagine by now there have been many developments and modifications to

The million copy bestseller by National Book Award nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist James Gleick the author of Time Travel A History that reveals the science behind chaos theoryA work of popular science in the tradition of Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan this 20th anniversary edition of James Gleick's groundbr The future is disorder Tom Stoppard Arcadia The unpredictable and the predetermined unfold together to make everything the way it is Tom Stoppard ArcadiaHalf of what draws me to physics to theory to Feynman and Fermat to Wittgenstein and Weber is the energy that boils beyond the theory The force living just beyond the push I m not alone Many of my favorite authors Cormac McCarthy Thomas Pynchon Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and musicians Mahler Beethoven etc all dance around this same wicked fire This burn of the natural world this magic of the unknown is what draws me to read physics and philosophy as an absolute amature There are pieces and fractures in these books that actually DON T escape me They hit my brain and spin and keep spinning forever I imagine this is something felt also by Gleick one of the top tier science writers out there My big grievance with this book is it falls too short His narrative is compelling yes the stories are interesting sure but he doesn t grab the central characters as well as a new journalist like John McPhee does He floats too far above the actual science and complexity He shows you pictures and dances around the pools of chaos and clouds of complexity but never actually puts the reader INTO the churning water or shoots the reader into energized cumuliform heaps This is a book for an advanced HS senior or an average college Freshman It is pop science and definitely has its place This is a book that is about translating the story of the science not the science for NOT the layman but really the lazy layman That is probably one of the reasons it did so well Anyway I m glad I read it but just wish it was deeper thicker and way less predictable

Review Chaos Making a New Science

Eaking bestseller Chaos introduces a whole new readership to chaos theory one of the most significant waves of scientific knowledge in our time From Edward Lorenz's discovery of the Butterfly Effect to Mitchell Feigenbaum's calculation of a universal constant to Benoit Mandelbrot's concept of fractals which crea I did study a bit of Physics in a past life but you don t need to have a background in science to get something out of this book It sounds terribly difficult but really it isn t This book gives a wonderful explanation of the Butterfly Effect one of those ideas in science that everyone thinks they know and understands but that generally people have upside down and back to frontI really do like popular science books particularly if they are well written relatively easy to follow and don t leave me feeling like I ve been looking over an abyss for hours Gleick never makes you feel this and takes you through some very difficult concepts with care and assurance A wonderful guide through what would ordinarily be a very difficult and frightening landscape
