Ed this I love accessible science with references to the original work It is similar to linked and the topic is related both "Excellent Books To Get You "books to get you about networks I like the topic I ve read magazines articles on network science before and enjoyed them And I like the concepts and ideas and what network science can tell s But apparently I Just Can T Read A Full Book On Topic It can t read a full book on topic It awhile to explain things and while the text is accessible it just doesn t hold my attention I had to put it aside Aleks Krotoski broadcaster journalist and academic specialising in technology and interactivity has chosen to discuss Duncan J Watts s Six Degrees The Science of a Connected Age on FiveBooks as one of the top five on her subject Virtual Living saying thatWatts has been looking at the small world phenomenon to identify whether the web itself has shrunk our world and in fact it hasn t We still do have those six degrees of separation even by e mail with somebody who s in say Brazil When it comes down to it ltimately we do still have the same number of friends and the same number of connections between two points in the worldThe full interview is available here This
Is My First Introduction To 
my first introduction to theory and small world theory I found it completely fascinating and well worth a read I picked p this book because I wanted to nderstand the impact of cross group work by mapping out connections I was looking to a taxonomy to talk about these concepts with others A co worker suggested. Networks are everywhere in the real world yet only recently have scientists attempted to explain their mysterious workingsFrom epidemics of disease to outbreaks of market madness from people searching for information to firms surviving crisis and change from the structure of personal rel. Abandoned reading this Maybe I ll come back to it some other time 80 pages in I still felt like I hadn t learned anything I didn t already know I don t have the patience to keep reading Not really all that engaging but one of the first non fiction books I ve got through in a while It gives some interesting insights but ltimately it s a bit old and too much work in reading through it some interesting insights but Greenlighting (Directors Cut ultimately it s a bit old and too much work in reading through it the little gain in knowledge it provides It s a sign of the author s great intelligence that I was able tonderstand this bookof course the parts that interested me the most were 1 network theory Rebound Roommate (Men of Lake Tahoe Series, used to examine spread of disease 2 designing flexible robust response systems A look at the maths behind the idea that there are six degreees of separation and other networking theories Interesting stuff and I like the fact that the author is not afraid to include plenty of graphs to illustrate his ideas popular science books that insist onsing only words drive me nuts This book was OK I think I would have liked it if I knew about math and statistics Watts raised some interesting "points in his book and who can forget playing the 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon Watts was "in his book and who can forget playing the 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon Watts was able to apply his findings to real world examples in a way that made the connections nderstandable to a layman In addition at the end of it all there was no tangible finding or process that could be applied by a reader to effectively tilize networks This book should be deemed as the first course of the science of networks I really lik. In this remarkable book Duncan Watts one of the principal architects of network theory sets out to explain the innovative research that he and other scientists are spearheading to create a blueprint of our connected planet Whether they bind computers economies or terrorist organizations. I read p on graph theory which lead me to this book and this researcher This book accomplished that It s a well written digestible overview and "HISTORY OF A VERY COMPLEX TOPIC "of a very Complex Topic On The Title What I topic on the title what I not expect was he would talk about niversality of networks This turned out to be a bonus This book is not only about social interactions but also about the organization of any network If you work on systems or are interested in systems theory then this book is well worth a read I found the coverage of resiliencesusceptibility of complex system to failures to be really interesting and a very different perspective He makes a point that only in hind sight can we see the chain of events that started things in power failures the tree branch that drooped to low Also that the multitude of interactions in systems makes them both vulnerable and robust at the same time Who should read this Anyone who wants to Saints and Misfits understand thenderlying theory on how complex systems actually work It s a great layman s introduction to the topic I really appreciate that the author kept the complex math behind the book out of it thus making it accessible And he does provide a full bibliography at the end for those who want to do further reading to
