Chaos is the closest science has come to becoming a religion.
It is full of vital technical concepts explained with beautiful writing, analogies and anecdotes. Chaos is the closest science has come to becoming a religion. This is more of a text book, than a fun read, but it takes a very complicated subject and helps break it down into something digestible for the layman. Don't think you will know all about Chaos and it might take some rereading in some chapters, but overall good reading. The illustrations are marvelous as well.
Turbulent Mirror book. This seems to be the science behind the ancient Chinese Tao philosophy, and I've made Chaos Theory a major part of my personal spiritual system. I recommend reading this before reading James Gleick's "Chaos: Making of a New Science", since Glieck goes into more detail. You'll want the basic visual understanding before proceeding.

David Peat holds a P. in physics from the University of Liverpool and has written dozens of books on art, science, and spirituality. He lives in London and can be reached at ww. davidpeat. They are the authors of Turbulent Mirror.
The new science of Chaos has revolutionized not only science, but how all disciplines think. Excellent and sometimes whimsical Illustrations by Cindy Tavernise in both books are very helpful in visualizing the technical information. Both books are still scientifically valid and explain the historical foundations of emerging science. The new science of Chaos has revolutionized not only science, but how all disciplines think.

book by F. David Peat. Until recently, such phenomena as the volatility of weather systems, the fluctuation of the shock market, or the random firing of neurons in the brain were considered too "noisy" and complex to be probed by science. But now, with the aid of high-speed computers, scientists have been able to penetrate a reality that is changing the way we perceive the universe.

Until recently, such phenomena as the volatility of weather systems, the fluctuation of the shock market, or the random firing of neurons in the brain were considered too "noisy" and complex to be probed by science. But now, with the aid of high-speed computers, scientists have been able to penetrate a reality that is changing the way we perceive the universe. Their findings -- the basis for chaos theory -- represent one of the most exciting scientific pursuits of our time.
No better introduction to this find could be found than John Briggs and F. David Peat's Turbulent Mirror. Together, they explore the many faces of chaos and reveal how its law direct most of the processes of everyday life and how it appears that everything in the universe is interconnected -- discovering an "emerging science of wholeness."
Turbulent Mirror introduces us to the scientists involved in study this endlessly strange field; to the theories that are turning our perception of the world on its head; and to the discoveries in mathematics, biology, and physics that are heralding a revolution more profound than the one responsible for producing the atomic bomb. With practical applications ranging from the control of traffic flow and the development of artifical intelligence to the treatment of heart attacks and schizophrenia, chaos promises to be an increasingly rewarding area of inquiry -- of interest to everyone.
