- Why should anyone be led by you? (10:00) London Business School professor Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones, authors of the best-selling Harvard Business Review article and book of the same name
- Chaos: Making a New Science. Gleick, James. The best book on chaos. It has everything—wonderful storytelling, memorable characters, an exhilarating sense of intellectual adventure, and exceptionally good explanations of the main ideas and why they matter. Read this book!
- Does God Play Dice?: The Mathematics of Chaos. Stewart, Ian. An outstanding popular account of chaos theory. Covers many of the same topics as Gleick’s book, but in more mathematical depth and with fewer colorful stories.
- Fly Me to the Moon: An Insider’s Guide to the New Science of Space Travel. Belbruno, Edward. A fun, fast-paced memoir by the creator of a new approach to space travel: surfing the gravitational chaos of the solar system.
- Fractals, Chaos, Power Laws: Minutes from an Infinite Paradise. Schroeder, Manfred. Witty and erudite, this dazzling survey contains insights you won’t find anywhere else. Aimed at readers comfortable with college-level mathematics.
- In the Beat of a Heart: Life, Energy, and the Unity of Nature. Whitfield, John. Very nice book about the scaling laws of life and their proposed explanation by West, Brown, and Enquist in terms of the fractal networks inside all living things. Balanced, clear, and authoritative.
- Newton’s Clock: Chaos in the Solar System. Peterson, Ivars. Excellent popular account of the development of celestial mechanics, written by a superb science journalist.
- Stalking the Riemann Hypothesis: The Quest to Find the Hidden Law of Prime Numbers. Rockmore, Dan. A terrific introduction to the Holy Grail of mathematics—the Riemann hypothesis—and its tantalizing connection to quantum chaos.
- Sync: The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order. Strogatz, Steven. Aimed at the general reader, this book explores nature’s amazing ability to synchronize itself, from traffic patterns to brain waves.
- The Essence of Chaos. Lorenz, Edward. Part memoir and part tutorial on the basics of chaos, this popular book by one of the giants of the field is characteristically understated, occasionally wry, and always illuminating.
- The Fractal Geometry of Nature . Mandelbrot, Benoit. Idiosyncratic masterpiece by the genius who put fractals on the map. Hard to follow, but amazingly wide-ranging and original.
