This review is from: Think Complexity: Complexity Science and Computational Modeling (Kindle Edition)
I am currently halfway on in my CS degree, and had a few doubts that the degree (and branch of science) is any good.

I got this book a rainy evening, and went through it in a fortnight. And it made me enjoy every last bit of it. It comfortably mixes technicalities and background history of science and how the topics came to be.
More importantly, it put me back on track, showing how the science of complexity is a great topic.

I doubt it's the right book to get if you don't have any prior knowledge of the topic encompassed, but I am quite sure that Downey's earlier 'Think Python' would be a valuable introduction.

I'm currently going through the book a second time, more slowly though...
