5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating stuff!, 19 Feb. 2004
While it is true that there are now several books about complexity theory, what Gribbin has done here is, to my mind, truly exceptional - a fascinating, rollicking read that grounds contemporary thought in classical physics in a very unique way. I would recommend it to anyone seeking to understand the cutting edge of the area of chaos and complexity theory. As importantly, though, I would recommend it to those who are also seeking to understand the history behind this area. Because that is what Gribbin does so uniquely well - place in context cutting-edge ideas.
It certainly left me with the feeling not just that I vaguely understood current trends, but that I really understood where those trends and theories *came from*. And that, for me, is the hallmark of a very exceptional book.
