An extremely accessible history of the emergence of chaos theory and description of its fundamental elements and dynamics. Written with an eye for humor, the book is a real triumph of conceptual clarity for the non-mathematically inclined and reflects an important extension to the basic qualitative understanding of science, the ramifications of which are still working themselves out even in the hard scientific disciplines. I am, however, thoroughly looking forward to the eventual impact this new field has on the social sciences! A salutary warning to the whole range of intro-quantitative methods courses: Linearity is a trap.

The behavior of linear equations - like that of choirboys - is far from typical.
