2.0 out of 5 stars eclectic collection of things seen before, 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written in Neil's entertaining voice, however devoid of a logical thread. Its a collection if past essays written by him, with lots of overlap in information and not nearly enough unique bits of information that could not be found elsewhere.
Its not detailed enough to satisfy a regular reader of science and not coherent enough to truly teach a novice something new well.
Its a general book on astronomy with nothing unique about it

2.0 out of 5 stars superficial, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not nearly enough illustrations. The important facts one may learn of the way networks are measured and characterised are not highlighted. Rather they are hidden amongst a barrage of not terribly exciting case studies.
Perhaps an ok introduction for the complete beginner.. But I think even then it could do with much more depth, detail, and excitement.

2.0 out of 5 stars not bad, not great either, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are a few juicy facts, but few and far between. The writing isn't spectacular either.. To me it wasn't really worth my time

Some very good points made. Many of the problems faced in a more complex relationship could easily be distilled even for a monogamous couple so there os much to be learned for anyone

Best described as cute. Didn't find the initial "dramatisations" at the beginning of every chapter as very entertaining so I skipped most of them but the rest had some interesting bits. Much of the material though could be found given enough internet reading
