From the tiniest particles in quantum physics to the tumbling of celestial bodies - not to mention dripping taps, bouncing billiard balls, the vagaries of the weather and the Stock Exchange - nothing in the universe ever behaves in a way that is totally predictable. As Ian Stewart shows in this stimulating and accessible account, the key to this chaotic world can be found in the concept of chaos, one of the most exciting breakthroughs in recent decades.
`A book well-worth reading and a valuable contribution to the literature on chaos' - New Scientist.
