Summary and Info
I don't think there can be a price on this book. It offers discrete information that has the wieght of being both technical and general. It really puts the reader in the position to comfortably understand the topics. I can't see how anyone would ever want to sell this book, unless they memorized every page. It can be refrenced over and over again to get limtless information. Each chapter closes with suggestions for further reading,extending into every field: geology, physics, chemistry,etc. I found the book at the library, and just couldn't put it down. It smoothly transitions between a first section on fractals, then a middle area where both chaos and fractals intersect, and lastly a final chunk on chaos. The beauty is that you can start where ever you want in the book because each chapter builds independently, while tieing things together at the same time. A brilliant book published by the Institute of Physics.
