Looking for More Great Reads? Much of the existing literature marvels at the beauty of complex organizations but doesn’t take us past awe and eye candy. He also makes some fascinating points regarding the development of network theory and how that development has been away from notions of randomness towards much more highly structured and law driven albert-laxzlo.
From the Pfizer study, innovations spread from innovators to hubs to the masses, like the product life cycle. Rocket scientists don’t model engines on the quark-scale!
I had hoped for more biological applications, rather than a single broad chapter. Want to Read saving…. We work and fight and play in short flourishes of activity followed by next to nothing. I mean, the book calls it “rich get richer”, but it sounds like first mover’s advantage to me.
It deals not only with the ideas of networks but also the mathematicians and scientists who study them, resulting in some appealing anecdotes. The content is almost entirely about the growth of the Internet and possible ways for a network like the Internet to break down. Apparently hubs keep networks robust?

A very sexy topic as far as physics is concerned. Your life may look random to you, but everything from your visits to a web page to your visits to the doctor are predictable, and happen in bursts. Things that Gain from Disorder” and followed it up with Supremely interesting book that delves into network theory and how it’s understanding and growth in every branch of science from Biology to Computer Science and Economics will undoubtedly change the way we view the world.
He writes in understandable lay-speak glittering with wit. Jan 27, Kayson Fakhar alnert-laszlo it really liked it. He says that this rule is not as all pervasive as MBAs would have us believe.
LINKED: The New Science of Networks
An interesting introduction to the science of networks. I appreciated the history, and the gradual building up of our current understanding of networks; it seemed slow, but since I have no background in the subject, it was a good pace.
It’s a nice framework for talking about abstract high-level concepts, but it’s zlbert-laszlo the groundbreaking and necessary future of bio-technology that he author claims.
Then it changes, quite inexplicably, to Christianity and gives everything to credit. Networks are present everywhere. Awesome book if you want to know why should we think in networks.
Some problems can’t be easily solved from 1st principles. Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes. I liked this very much. To ask other readers questions about Linkedplease sign up. In he was elected into the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and in into the Academia Europaea.
Extremely well written and a pleasure to read. Sidney Rednerleading physicist of Boston Universitydescribes Linked In Nature as an entertaining introductory level book of modern science. Lists with This Book. Like all pop science books, its objective is to sell an idea, and it achieves that objective through claims that it this idea is The Thing that Will Solve All Problems.
I love how this field has exploded since this book was written. It is an ideal sourcebook for the key research in this fast-growing field. Brief Answers to the Big Questions. You Are the Universe. These bursts are both mathematically predictable and beautiful. Anywho, while the content is extremely interesting, if you have any prior knowledge of networks, you might find the book somewhat longwinded.
But this paradigm overlooks the inherent complexity of human diseases and has often led to treatments that are inadequate or fraught with adverse side effects. But what exactly is a network? We’ve long suspected that we live in a small world, where everything is connected to everything else.
Why are they interesting, and what can they tell albrrt-laszlo Personthen we have a cluster in which everyone is connected.
