This book is a wonderful addition to reading "Chaos" by Gleik and "Order out of Chaos" by Prigogine, although neither are a prerequisite for reading this book as it is so well written, that anyone can understand and comprehend its observations. It deserves to be read more than once.
I would recommend this book to anyone as it is so facinating and well written in such an understandable and enriching way. There are books and articles I referenced in the book I plan on further reading.
I hope this kind of science filters quickly into school curriculums as soon as possible.
