The unpredictable world examined and explained!



Early scientific theories, such as Newton's physics, made things seem completely predictable. But the real world is unpredictable, and this book explains why! Readers can find out what chaos has to do with earthquakes and avalanches, the stockmarket, Saturn's rings, evolution, and even special offers at their local supermarket!



Mary and John have combined their talents to make the mindboggling areas of chaos theory and quantum physics more accessible than ever before, with the help of Chris Priestley's highly original illustrations.
