Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This best-selling book and companion software from one of the world's most respected scientists present a series of dramatic discoveries never before made public. Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments---illustrated in the book by striking computer graphics---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 origin of the Second Law of thermodynamics, to the development of complexity in biology, the computational limitations of mathematics, the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of physics, and the interplay between free will and determinism.

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

The companion software program, based on the very same programs that Stephen Wolfram used to create the graphics in his book, allows you to experience the discoveries of A New Kind of Science on your own computer, repeating Wolfram's experiments and trying new ones of your own. Included are over 450 key experiments from the book, which offer a full range of inputs and parameters for further exploration. This software is ideal for personal study, recreation, or classroom use.
