Summary

''Put together one of the world's best science writers with one of the universe's most fascinating subjects and you are bound to produce a wonderful book. . . . The subject of complexity is vital and controversial. This book is important and beautifully done.''--Stephen Jay Gould ''[Complexity] is that curious mix of complication and organization that we find throughout the natural and human worlds: the workings of a cell, the structure of the brain, the behavior of the stock market, the shifts of political power. . . . It is time science . . . thinks about meaning as well as counting information. . . . This is the core of the complexity manifesto. Read it, think about it . . . but don't ignore it.''--Ian Stewart, Nature This second edition has been brought up to date with an essay entitled ''On the Edge in the Business World'' and an interview with John Holland, author of Emergence: From Chaos to Order.
