Summary
A pioneer in the scientific field of synchronicity examines the ground-breaking work of physicists and mathematicians out to prove how spontaneous order emerges from chaos, and offers a fascinating glimpse of the interconnections that exist among many disciplines, places, and times in the world around us. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The tendency to synchronize may be the most mysterious and pervasive drive in all of nature. It has intrigued some of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century, including Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, Norbert Wiener, Brian Josephson, and Arthur Winfree.

At once elegant and riveting, Sync tells the story of the dawn of a new science. Steven Strogatz, a leading mathematician in the fields of chaos and complexity theory, explains how enormous systems can synchronize themselves, from the electrons in a superconductor to the pacemaker cells in our hearts. He shows that although these phenomena might seem unrelated on the surface, at a deeper level there is a connection, forged by the unifying power of mathematics.
