"Chaos is a kind of science that deals with the parts of the world that are unpredictable, apparently random . . . disorderly, erratic, irregular, unruly—misbehaved," explains James Gleick, author of Chaos: Making a New Science.

Gleick, one of the nation's preeminent science writers, became an international sensation with Chaos, in which he explained how, in the 1960s, a small group of radical thinkers upset the rigid foundation of modern scientific thinking by placing new importance on the tiny experimental irregularities that scientists had long learned to ignore. Two decades later, Gleick's blockbuster modern science classic is available in ebook form—now updated with video and modern graphics.
