Deep Simplicity by John Gribbin
Book DescriptionSimplifying chaos and complexity theory for the perplexed, John Gribbin's "Deep Simplicity: Chaos, Complexity and the Emergence of Life" brilliantly illuminates the harmony underlying our existence. The world around us can be a complex, confusing place. Earthquakes happen without warning, stock markets fluctuate, weather forecasters seldom seem to get it right - even other people continue to baffle us. How do we make sense of it all? In fact, John Gribbin reveals, our seemingly random universe is actually built on simple laws of cause and effect that can explain why, for example, just one vehicle braking can cause a traffic jam; why wild storms result from a slight atmospheric change; even how we evolved from the most basic materials. Like a zen painting, a fractal image or the pattern on a butterfly's wings, simple elements form the bedrock of a sophisticated whole. "The master of popular science writing". ("Sunday Times"). "What makes "Deep Simplicity" different from other books on complexity theory is that Gribbin ...goes back to the fundamentals". ("Daily Telegraph"). "One is left feeling even more - if this is possible - filled with admiration for science and delight at the world it investigates". ("Financial Times"). John Gribbin is one of today's greatest writers of popular science and the author of bestselling books, including "In Search of Schrodinger's Cat", "Stardust", "Science: A History" and "In Search of the Multiverse". Gribbin trained as an astrophysicist at Cambridge University and is currently Visiting Fellow in Astronomy at the University of Sussex.
