    The goal of this book is to get history working for you. I mean this in both senses of the word work: working, as in, you can understand it better; and working, as in, that understanding will bring you benefits - you can exploit your understanding to take advantage of upcoming opportunities, and to sleep better at night because the world you live in is a more understandable and predictable place.

    Newtonian physics described a regular, clock-like world of forces and reaction; randomness was equated with incomplete knowledge. But scientists in the late 20th century have found patterns in things formerly thought to be "chaotic"; their theories help explain the unstable, irregular, yet highly structured features of everyday experience. It now seems likely that randomness and chaos play an essential role in the evolution of the living world and in intelligence itself.

    This book is a collection of short stories. In each of these I wrap an interesting story around a science concept. Because I am as concerned about good internal consistency as I am good story telling, these are stories that are fun because they take different twists from those found in conventional speculative fiction. These stories are different.
