Deep Simplicity

Chaos, Complexity and the Emergence of Life

'Gribbin takes us through the basics with his customary talent for accessibility and clarity' Sunday Times

The world around us can be a complex, confusing place. Earthquakes happen without warning, stock markets fluctuate, weather forecasters seldom seem to get it right - even other people continue to baffle us. How do we make sense of it all?
