Chaos records the birth of a new science. This new science offers a way of seeing order and pattern where formerly only the random, the erratic, the unpredictable-in short, the chaotic-had been observed. Chaos is a history of discovery. It chronicles, in the words of the scientists themselves, their conflicts and frustrations, their emotions and moments of revelation. After reading Chaos , you will never look at the world in quite the same way again.Gleick, James is the author of 'Chaos Making a New Science', published 1988 under ISBN 9780140092509 and ISBN 0140092501.
