Product description


"Johnson's book fills a long-overdue need for an engaging semipopular book about complexity science, one that is also strong on the underlying scientific and theoretical concepts." "Highly recommended." (Choice)

"Neil Johnson has provided a readable account of the science of complexity" (Oxford Times)


"This is a wonderful book, simultaneously deep and highly readable. It provides unexpected insights into a wild array of subjects ranging from jazz to traffic jams to war." (Michael Spagat - Professor of Economics, Royal Holloway College, University of London)

'It's lucidly explained, engagingly written and constantly surprising: complexity made simple!' (Philip Ball)

"An excellent introduction to complexity -- a branch of science that every one of us in our time should be aware of." (Pak Ming Hui - Professor of Physics, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)
