    This is a very entertaining book I enjoyed every chapter of the book I was especially intrigued by the biological rhythms fireflies and human sleep cycles And I thoroughly enjoyed the step by step history of how the mathematics of coupled oscillators was worked out As previous reviewers have mentioned, the book could have been helped by additional charts and diagrams and even perhaps some equations It is difficult to imagine some of the patterns the author describes, without some concrete This is a very entertaining book I enjoyed every chapter of the book I was especially intrigued by the biological rhythms fireflies and human sleep cycles And I thoroughly enjoyed the step by step history of how the mathematics of coupled oscillators was worked out As previous reviewers have mentioned, the book...

    A great multi disciplinary introduction to the idea of complex systems obtaining order in a spontaneous way It s funny that it seems like, at least to me, about half the reviews say they couldn t fully grasp all the ideas in the book while the other half claim it isn t technical enough Some of the descriptions can be slightly hard to follow, but i think he does an outstanding job of helping the reader to visualize incredibly complex concepts Personally, I d rather the book be for the layman i A great multi disciplinary introduction to the idea of complex systems obtaining order in a spontaneous way It s funny that it seems like, at least to me, about half the reviews say they couldn t fully grasp all the ideas in the book while the other half claim it isn t technical enough Some of the descriptions can be slightly hard to follow, but i think he does an outstanding job of helping the reader to visualize incredibly complex concepts Personally, I d rather the book be for the layman in the hopes that it could peak the interests of anyone despite their mathematical backgrounds By making the book accessible to all, anyone can revel in the beauty of the universe that is often overlooked by the naked eye, despite the complexity of the concepts These are concepts that, IMO, everyone should be aware of on some level because they permeate every scale and corner of the universe and are applicable to every discipline, concept, system, or p...

    This is a great multi disciplinary science book The reader is introduced to phenomena from many disciplines.These phenomena are well modeled by similar mathematics using non linear oscillators.The book requires little math knowledge, but it helps.I plan to write my own computer simulations for some of these phenomena, and will link them to this review when I m finished I do have one heated criticism of this book Strogatz defends Josephson s regurgitation of the most certainly incorrect view t This is a great multi disciplinary science book The reader is introduced to phenomena from many disciplines.These phenomena are well modeled by similar mathematics using non linear oscillators.The book requires little math knowledge, but it helps.I plan to write my own computer simulations for some of these phenomena, and will link them to this review when I m finished I do have one heated criticism of this book Strogatz defends Josephson s regurgitation of the most certainly incorrect view that quantum mechanics can somehow explain the para normally supposed and repeatedly experimentally verified to be non existent...

    Probably the best book I ve read this year So many OMG moments

    Steve Strogatz has gained popularity with his textbook, Non linear Dynamics and Chaos I would say that his non academic work, Sync The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order is an equally smashing hit Sync explores the idea of how spontaneous synchronization arises in the chaotic turbulent lives non lives...

    The spectacle of synchrony in nature is one of those mysteries that strike a chord in us Fireflies blinking on and off in unison Schools of fish moving gracefully as if they were only one Pacemaker cells in a heart working all together to make that heart beat Menstrual cycles of female roommates and co workers starting to match each other over time yes, it s true And then there s the synchronization between things that aren t even alive photons that align to form a ...

    I enjoyed this book every bit as much as Gleick s book on chaos Strogatz is an excellent writer Able to convey complex concepts of chaos and synchronicity to the general reader, this book is for anyone with interest in the topic If you don t fully understand chaos from one perspective, don t worry Storgatz provides many With discussions of his own work as well as the work of mentors, students, and others in the field, Strogatz addressed the broad applicat...

    This book is an interesting look at a number of phenomena that aren t as curious as the author makes them out to be.The book focuses on instances of spontaneous order seeking in nature Cases where things start irregular, but tend towards an equilibrium which is ordered Now, before you go jumping about the Second Law of Thermodynamics, he s claiming this for living systems, and at the macroscopic level he s talking about things like certain species of fireflies which spontaneously synchron This book is an interesting look at a number of phenomena that aren t as curious as the author makes them out to be.The book focuses on instances of spontaneous order seeking in nature Cases where things start irregular, but tend towards an equilibrium which is ordered Now, before you go jumping about the Second Law of Thermodynamics, he s claiming this for living systems, and at the macroscopic level he s talking about things like ce...

    Great insight into the phenomenon of sync and how hard it is to decipher non linear dynamic systems.The part before the final couple of chapters is a slog to go through and not as interesting as the rest of the book O...

    Strogatz goes around showing us synchronization everywhere He means everywhere in the whole universe From small fireflies to big moons Atoms and humans are also mentioned For example, superconductivity and water freezing are just synchronization of atoms Hey, you will feel his passion for t...
