    God knows why I even thought I would like this book I probably picked it up for Marc, actually I got about 30 pages into it and realized that I did not give a rat s ass about anything I had read so far..ugh So I put it down and moved on.

    This book gets 4 stars because it is entertaining, informative, and brief enough to not be laborious If you like books that deal with a conceptual idea and then provides many examples so that you can have stuff to talk about afterwards, this should fit the bill Is it the best in the genre, no But is it not bad, and fairly interesting Yes It did not get 5 stars, because it is not the sort of book that all lovers of this genre will enjoy, namely because of the book s structure and the wording of the subtitle First, there is some validity to the reviewer that suggests the chapters are a bit disjointed However, I didn t mind this I felt the different questions which formed the title thesis and disjointedness allowed the book not to be overly repetitive, a failing of many of the books in this genre of leisure non fiction That said, a friend of mine who read the book also remarked that the book felt too all over the map and so, I can not give the book 5 stars The second minor issue, as pointed out by another reviewer, is that the author does not fulfill all the claims of the title The author does not explain How complex things can be made simple , at least, not in any direct manner There are hints that his point is that the human mind somehow reduces complex action into something simple, but that most are unaware that they are doing something rather complex However, those that think this book is about HOW to make something complex simple, would be better off in ...

    In the late 80s, James Gleick wrote Chaos Making A New Science, an entertaining book that described the rise of the study of chaos The book also helped popularize fractals I recall going to an early 90s Lollapalooza where a fellow attendee pointed to a fractal t shirt and said woah, chaos theory In Simplexity, Time science writer Jeffrey Kluger aims to repeat Gleick s success and detail the rise of a new line of inquiry that explores the inter relationship between simplicity and complexity While the book tells a number of entertaining and enlightening stories it does not weave these into a strong, compelling thesis Do not expect the kids at Bonnaroo to get their heads blown by Simplexity.The principal idea of the book is that defining something as simple or complex is not easy He gives the example of the pencil, which appears to be terribly simple, but in fact is a complex assemblage of materials from around the world Much interesting is his study of how this is manifested in real world situations He asks about the complexity of jobs including truck drivers who have to gauge the reactions and behaviors of other people, the status of his machinery, the effects of weather and many other exogenous factors The highly paid Wall Street analyst running a series of financial models may seem less complex by comparison.The book is best seen as a collection of a science author s short pieces The i...

    Interesting concept, lackluster execution You re probably better off reading Fooled by Randomness and Freakonomics if this sounds interesting And if it does, you probably already have The theme is poorly articulated and...

    This book takes a really good idea, describes it and analyzes it, then applies it to a too wide range of topics In some it isn t mentioned at all In this way, a book which could be comparable to Gleick s Chaos or The Black Swan ends up going astray.The really good idea is graphing complexity as an arc, with low complexity for highly ordered and completely chaotic systems, and high complexity in between This idea comes from the Santa Fe Institute, and turns out to be really interesting when compared to the stock market, fluid turbulence and traffic flow Other chapters occasionally hint at the complexity arc, but instead focus on topics covered in other books, or at least topics which have to do with math than complexity.Did the author a science writer for Time and before that Discover magazine and Science D...

    Composed of 11 chapters each chapter tackled the complexity of a specific situation For example, chapter 8 was called, Why is a baby the best linguist in any room and considered the complexities involved in learning language Overall the book wasn t very cohesive with each chapter stan...

    So it turns out that lots of stuff in the world is simple, but also complex Stock market simple but complex Personal biases simple but complex Sports simple but complex Technology simple but complex You get the idea Now, I don t mean to sound condescending but Kluger s book is little than a collection of essays with neat little tidbits here and there There s an attempt to string the essays together using the idea of si...

    The ideas presented are good enough but it is let down by poor writing

    Frankly I was hoping for from this one Interesting Yes Compelling No A single idea repeated in every chapter.

  10. says:

    This book is a collection of essays, a format similar to Freakanomics and Fooled by Randomness with a premise somewhat similar to Chaos Making a New Science In many ways, it feels like something by Nassim Nicholas Taleb It s smarter than than Malcom Gladwell but not as cohesive as something by Nassim Nicholas Taleb The pieces do not yield a cathartic whole unless that s the point Some interesting aspects about this exploration of simple things being complex then they seem What are the patterns that underlie musical chords and melodies and Why are football and baseball so much complicated than hockey and basketball Not quite from the book but where I first came across the term for a sociological application We long for simplicity and satisfaction, but in the end usually settle for discou...
