Jeffrey Kluger - Simplexity: Why Simple Things Become Complex (and How Complex Things Can Be Made Simple)
Published: 2009-06-16 | ISBN: 1401309933 | PDF | 336 pages | 3 MB


Sometimes a complex problem has an easy solution. And sometimes there's more to a simple thing than first appears.
In Simplexity, Time senior writer Jeffrey Kluger shows how a drinking straw can save thousands of lives, how a million cars can be on the streets but just a few hundred of them can lead to gridlock, how investors behave like atoms; how arithmetic governs abstract art and physics drives jazz, and why swatting a TV indeed makes it work better.
Kluger adeptly translates newly evolving science into a delightful theory of everything that will have you rethinking the rules of business, family, art–your world.
