Not so interesting for those interested in hard science, but poetically brought. I thought the book sync by Strogatz was more interesting.
The author lurches from story to topic with reckless abandon . Out of 30 books I've listened to, this might be the first one that I thought about skipping on every single chapter
The book starts OK with interesting pieces of information. It never really defines its subject of chaos. Most natural and artificial processes and systems that have seemingly random variations may have an underlying structure that is best modeled as non-linear. That is not a big revelation but the author treats it as one. Eventually all kinds of processes are invoked and terms are tossed around with no attempt at clear understanding.
never heard anything like it. life changing. it will change the way you see everything
The mind bending story of non linear physics was fascinating and applicable to my world as a wellness professional.
Fear & Loathing in Los Vegas
The stories are fascinating!
Yes, however as soon as I finished, I started it again, this time slower.
If you are stuck, read this!
Finally I know what the word means, and what a gargantuan influence it has and will continue to have on our understanding of ALL sciences and how we visualise of the complexities of the world around us. I would reread the book right now If the book itself did not provide so many other references to pursue.
Chaos is a book for anyone feeling stuck in dogma and looking for substantive ways out.

Too many to list: the parallels between mathematics, physics, and mind science arise with almost every page.
