About this book

The notion that humans are all about six 'degrees of separation' away from each other is an example of small world networks, a piece of mathematics as fundamental to the natural world as Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Mean, but which has only been studied for 4 years. The author convincingly stakes out the many areas in which this new science is providing surprising insights.
