5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new place to get started April 30 2011
By Susan K. Gushue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect little intro May 17 2013
By J. Golding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a fun but also rather concise way to enter the world-less world of fractals, then you cannot beat this little treasure. I've been dealing with fractals for years and I have to say, this really will help those from pre-school --> PHD+ level (well, this may be a 'slight' exaggeration for the pre-schoolers!) Go for it.
