As the broad historical sweep suggests, this is a book that paints in very broad strokes -- covering not only a wide range of research areas (chaos, complexity, artificial intelligence, computer simulation), but also a dizzying range of disciplines (physics, biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, economics) and historical perspective.
What this book does not do, unfortunately, is teach you how to practice any of this stuff. In its quest to present a conceptual picture, it glosses over the science and engineering in ways that border on heresy. Consider this novel explanation of Einstein's special and general theories of relativity:
"If Newton's laws of motion put an end to the idea of absolute position in space, Einstein's theory of relativity gets rid of absolute time. What Albert Einstein established is that
" - There is no unique absolute time.
" - Instead, each person has her or his own personal measure of time.
"This measure of time depends on where that person is and how he or she is moving. With these two contributions, space and time have become dynamic entities. When a body moves or a force acts, it affects the curvature of space and time. Something similar can be stated about behavior in the financial markets.Read more ›
