Fractals A Graphic Guide Feb. 13 2011
By JB Mahlon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book! For an artist and non-mathematician who is intensely interested in fractals, it is indispensable. It is clear, easy to refer to and portable. The graphics are simple, charming and humorous. Even though I now understand most of the concepts, it is great if I want to quickly refresh my understanding of a concept.

Well Done - But Not Simple Dec 26 2011
By Brian Horblit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Introducing Fractals - A Graphic Guide is quite well done. To truly understand fractals, however, takes quite a bit of mathematical background. The authors do an excellent job of trying to ease the reader into the required math, but the average reader without much higher math background likely will not really understand some of the material. I have an extensive background in math (though not exercised much in the last 20 years), and I still felt a tad frustrated that I was not sure I really "got it" for some of the concepts. Do I *really* understand what an attractor or repellor is? Or their significance? I think so - but do I?

So if you want to understand the basic ideas behind fractals, and their significance, this is a decent intro. If you are looking for a quick, easy read, that won't require much thinking to get through, this might not be it. The nature of the material might make finding such a book a tall order.

A new place to get started April 30 2011
By Susan K. Gushue - Published on Amazon.com

This is definitely a series I will go back to for introductions to other topics. The presentation was great. The graphics were well done. It really did feel like an introduction with ideas about all kinds of things to look at about fractals. I think it would be especially useful in a high school classroom library.
Great summary of Fractals May 16 2013

Enjoyed the material quite a bit. Not used to graphic book format, but did enjoy that. Don't know why I was surprised by its size, probably didn't read that in description! Font a bit small, of course. Worthwhile intro!
A good crash course about the relationship of mathematics and fratals. March 24 2013

If you want to explain to your child's maths tutor why you are exited about fractals this is the book for you. If your curiosity about fratals extends beyond basic concepts, look for something more in depth.
