Six Degrees: The Science of a Connected Age Abandoned reading this Maybe I ll come back to it some other time 80 pages in I still felt like I hadn t learned anything I didn t already know I don t have the patience to keep reading. I like the topic, I ve read magazines articles on network science before and enjoyed them And I like the concepts and ideas and what network science can tell us But apparently, I just can t read a full book on topic It takes awhile to explain things and while the text is accessible it just doesn t hold my attention I had to put it aside.

It s a sign of the author s great intelligence that I was able to understand this bookof course the parts that interested me the most were 1 network theory used to examine spread of disease 2 designing flexible, robust response systems. Not really all that engaging, but one of the first non fiction books I ve got through in a while It gives some interesting insights, but ultimately it s a bit old and too much work in reading through it for the little gain in knowledge it provides. This book should be deemed as the first course of the science of networks. This book was OK I think I would have liked itif I knewabout math and statistics Watts raised some interesting points in his book and who can forget playing the 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon Watts was not able to apply his findings to real world examples in a way that made the connections understandable to a layman In addition, at the end of it all there was no tangible finding or process that could be applied by a reader toeffectively utilize networks. In this remarkable book, Duncan Watts, one of the principal architects of network theory, sets out to explain the innovative research that he and other scientists are spearheading to create a blueprint of our connected planet Whether they bind computers, economies, or terrorist organizations, networks are everywhere in the real world, yet only recently have scientists attempted to explain their mysterious workingsFrom epidemics of disease to outbreaks of market madness, from people searching for information to firms surviving crisis and change, from the structure of personal relationships to the technological and social choices of entire societies, Watts weaves together a network of discoveries across an array of disciplines to tell the story of an explosive new field of knowledge, the people who are building it, and his own peculiar path in forging this new science [Download] ➾ The End (The 30-Day Collective Book 1) By Ellen A.
