This was painful to listen to. I'm an engineer by profession and I love all of the stuff about the "butterfly effect", fractals, etc. But after giving this my best shot and grinding through listening to it for about 6 hours - I finally stopped. I could not bear to go on. It simply was not written in a way to hold my interest. Too many mundane facts. Too dry. Too technical. This was a great opportunity for the author to bring something really cool to the masses and get people interested. Instead, it was written more like a college math text book with dropping a lot of names over and over.
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.
Sapolsky's Lectures at Stanford on Neuroscience - Great Courses
Too many to list: the parallels between mathematics, physics, and mind science arise with almost every page.
Mandelbrot sets and their discovery and nature.
Feigenbaum working in an obsessed manner on his computers, living off cigarettes.
Making a New Science
Brilliant, gripping, fresh
I'd compare it to 'The Tao of Physics' by Fritjof Capra. Because both books are ground breaking, high quality, authentic science, and both will introduce the reader to new paradigms.
A book on science.
Thank you for making this book available.
