Book Review: Complexity

Last week I finished Complexity and must say it was quite good. It is considered equal to Chaos, but I do not agree. I loved Chaos due to its attention to detail and careful explanations. Complexity offered very enlightening views, but presented the material in more of a story line that followed the life trials of the actors in the science.

I loved the concept of Emergence, and the idea that “constantly seeking mutual accommodation and self-consistency, groups of agent manage to transcend themselves and become something more.” There are a lot of insights in this simple idea, and some very scary predictions based on this concept, and the Edge of Chaos Theory thoroughly discussed.

Overall, worth the read and something that deserves more than a few flights…
