Critical Mass by Phillip Ball

Wow. What an interesting book. After what seemed at the time to be a slow start, it turned into a ripping read about how social science can learn from the laws that are usually applied to statistical physics.


This wasn't any part of my coursework for my social science studies, but it fitted in with them perfectly and I'm sure that I'll be referring to it in future.

Highly and thoroughly recommended.

Noted Sho. Next on my list - The Social Animal by Brooks. Have you read it? KT

nope, haven't read that one. Any clues what it's about?
