5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Influential Book I've Ever Read, 2. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I am 16 years old and after reading this book, I know that I want to be a scientist. This is a great book that explains concepts that I've always wanted to understand. Even though the book covers some complicated topics, it is written in a style that is fun to read. The author seems to be really enthusiastic about science and his enthusiasm comes through in the book. I even emailed the author a question and he was kind enough to respond to me. I recommend this book to every teenager who thinks that they might be interested in pursuing science or math.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gelungenes Buch für Einsteiger, 22. März 2005
Von 
Jochen Fromm (Berlin, Deutschland) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Gary William Flake ist der Chef der Yahoo! Research Labs. Sein Buch hat von allem etwas: Fraktale, Neuronale Netze, Chaos, Selbst-Organisation, mit einer Prise Zellulärer Automaten und Genetischer Algorithmen. Achtung, es ist kein Buch für Fortgeschrittene, und deswegen für professionelle Wissenschaftler ein wenig enttäuschend. Es ist mehr ein Buch für Anfänger, Amateure und Einsteiger, aber als solches gut gelungen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bring out the fun and enthusiasm of computing, 19. Februar 2000
Computing books are divided into immediate needs for professional life and spiritual food for enriching computing life. This book is the second type. Just by reading the preface, you get the sense of pure fun side of computing and the author's noble goal to bring this book to you. Some book's info will only last for a few months but this book will last for a long time in your computing life.
Every chapter is filled with inspiration. The author has carefully crafted a program for every chapter for you to enjoy. This reading and playing style fits the topic greatly. Although you will still see some math notations (some are hard to follow), I tried hard to follow and enjoy the beauty in the notation and mathematical side of the story.
If you go to the book's website, you can download the source code (including someone port the software to Java source code). I find the Java demo is better to run.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book gives you the whole picture..., 15. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I agree with the previous comments completely (incl. reference to Gödel, Escher & Bach; one other book I'll recommend in this direction is "The Collapse of Chaos" from Cohen & Stewart.) This is the only book I read so far that combines topics in complexity, which are treated separately in other literature... Fractals, GA, CA, Attractors... Neural nets, classifier systems... Number theory, set theory... They are not catch-phrases in this book. They are clearly explained, and most importantly, woven together to give a clear picture of the field of complexity. A must read for anyone (even non-experts) interested in ANY scicence.
One and only criticism to the author (publisher): correct those typos, please... It really sticks out in an otherwise excellent book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An instant classic, 31. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Over the years I have read many books on artificial life, complex systems, and computer science. Quite simply, this book is best that I have ever seen. It is easy and fun to read because Flake has a casual and pleasant writing style. Yet it still manages to be true to all of the topics covered. In fact, all of the equations that are required to understand the topics are given, but Flake gives you the intuition that you need to understand them by giving many figures, metaphors, and analogies.
Plus, the source code and images are just spectacular.
I consider this book to be as important as Hofstaders "Goedel, Escher, Bach." So if you buy just one science book this year, this should be it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen a good introduction to concepts of modern image generation, 20. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Computational Beauty of Nature: Computer Explorations of Fractals, Chaos, Complex Systems, and Adaptation (Bradford Books) (Taschenbuch)
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand modern concepts of how to generate images through computacional mathematical methods. It is realy a new approach to join fractals, cellular growth and computer concepts and limitations. The code does not work well in Windows
