Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of This book is a joy to read and it can help you get in the proper mindset to “grok” networks; however, it won’t make you an expert in computer science or social media marketing. The story is told with a gentle pace, and some sections will keep you awake. Also, cascading failures e.

This is an excellent read.

You Are the Universe. It is constantly evolving and adapting. Thus, such a path cannot exist on a graph that has more than two nodes with an odd number of links. For example, hubs surface in the cell, in the network of molecules connected by chemical reactions.

And if we figure out the critical threshold, we can figure out if the innovation will succeed.

Read it Forward Read it first. He writes in understandable lay-speak glittering with wit.

Overall, a great introduction to network modeling, and some interesting food for thought. In a previous life I would have had a better understanding of power series and therefore a deeper understanding of how networks are shown to be less random and more law driven — but in this book such an understanding of mathematics is not assumed nor needed to follow the argument. This book has a lot of interesting information about the structure of the Internet.

Nov 27, Christian Euler rated it it was ok. There’s nothing smooth or random int he way life expresses itself, but bursts dominate at all time scales, from milliseconds to hours in our cells; from minutes to weeks in our activity patterns; from weeks to years when it comes to diseases; from millenia to millions of years in evolutionary processes. I rea So, I had to read this for a class, which meant that I took notes on every single chapter. Supremely interesting book that delves into network theory and how it’s understanding and growth in every branch of science from Biology to Computer Science and Economics will undoubtedly change the way we view the world.
