About the Print Book:

"This is more than just a book: it is a phenomenon, a paradigm shift..." New Scientist

"A New Kind of Science is a book that simply cannot be ignored. ... Such a book appears only once every few decades." Nature

"There is so much in the book that it will be years, literally years, before

people assimilate it." New York Times

"Stephen's magnum opus may be the book of the decade, if not the century." Arthur C. Clarke

Original Book Description:

This long-awaited work from one of the world's most respected scientists

presents a series of dramatic discoveries never before made public. Starting from a collection of simple computer experimentsillustrated in the book by striking computer graphicsStephen Wolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe.

Wolfram uses his approach to tackle a remarkable array of fundamental problems in science, from the origins of apparent randomness in physical systems, to the development of complexity in biology, the ultimate scope and limitations of mathematics, the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of physics, the interplay between free will and determinism, and the character of intelligence in the universe.

Written with exceptional clarity, and illustrated by nearly a thousand original pictures, this seminal book allows scientists and non-scientists alike to participate in what promises to be a major intellectual revolution.

4/5 stars

Have been waiting for this for some time!

:
I'm thrilled this is out! I do wish I could highlight and add margin notes, however... Any title that invites substantial thought should include ways to mark-up the content, too.

2/5 stars

Missed opportunity

:
This is simply a PDF of the original. Not only is there none of the standard ebook interactivity - note taking, links, lookups, etc - but Wolfram missed a great opportunity to add real value by allowing the reader to run and interact with the cellular automata examples.

5/5 stars

Makes it possible to read NKS

:
This interesting book weighs 5.5 pounds in the hardback edition! I like to hang out in coffee shops while I read; hence my original copy languished on my bookshelf. I also wish for highlighting and note taking, but I'll cough up the five stars anyway!
