Few writers distinguish themselves by their ability to write about complicated, even obscure topics clearly and engagingly. James Gleick, former science writer for The New York Times, resides in this exclusive category. In Chaos, he takes on the job of depicting the first years of the study of chaos - the seemingly random patterns that characterize many natural phenomena. This is not a purely techinical book. Instead, it focuses as much on scientists studying events as chaos itself. Listeners will meet dozens of extraordinary and eccentric people in this learned but highly accessible book.
