Bellwether - Connie Willis

This is reread my wife and I are doing together, this time as an audiobook. I read it about twenty years ago, when Chaos Theory will still relatively new to non-mathematicians like me, and I remember being excited by the ideas.


This time around, the ideas still stand up, but I'm impressed by the almost satirical wit that powers this book on how science works, the causes and mechanisms behind trends and what can happen when one starts. It's a delightful, easy, clever read that makes me smile and sometimes laugh. I'm very glad I came back to this.
