The study of complex systems is a little too trendy at the moment to be conducive to good science. Many of the popular books on the topic are full of entertaining speculation and little reliable information. Resnick takes a more humble and more successful tack, starting with a simple world model (parallel turtles!) and developing surprising insight into such phenomena as ant behavior and traffic jams. This book might change the way you think.
