    James Gleick explains the theories behind the fascinating new science called chaos. Alongside relativity and quantum mechanics, it is being hailed as the 20th century's third revolution.

    Story

    Exceptionally informative. Well written and narrated. My only complaint is I, like many others, am a kinesthetic learner. So I could manipulate the sets or draw fractals whilst listening, but I'd rather have a visual of the material. Too esoteric for audio alone. Worth buying, but you'll find yourself on wikipedia, YouTube, or a .edu site connecting the topics to a visual. The butterfly effect is best seen as 3D, for example.

    Nasr presents a paradigm-changing revelation that will transform the understanding of the Muslim world at large. He reveals that there is a vital but unseen rising force in the Islamic world---a new business-minded middle class---that is building a vibrant new Muslim world economy and that holds the key to winning the cold war against Iran and extremists.

    Story

    Nasr's presents a truly erudite view on the gestalt of Persia--purposeful omission of the Shah's renaming from German influence. Highly recommended. This work gleans the current challenges of the country: power, theocracy, religion, pragmatism, hubris, intellect, and fear . This with the Persian Puzzle, Pollack, Victor Hanson's Culture and Carnage, Rupert Smith's The Utility of Force, and Margaret MacMillan's Paris 1919 will provide you with a newfound appreciation for the trials and tribulations fraught with both trepidation and intrepediation, missteps, and miscommunications. The country is no longer uneducated and lemmings.
