Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Gell-Mann, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery of the quark and one of the founders of the new science of complexity, tells his own story of finding the connections between the basic laws of complexity and diversity in the natural world. The book is divided into four parts: Gell-Mann's personal experiences, the laws of physics and fundamental particles, selection pressures operating in complex systems, and policy matters and advocacy. Written for the general reader.
