"This collaboration by the eminent nature photographer & the author of Chaos uses the photographer's observation of the 'random chaos of the natural world -- a world of endless variety where nothing was ever the same' -- to elucidate the new science. While reflections on the disorder of nature are eloquently articulated by both Gleick & Porter, the main offering is the selection of over 100 photographs, most previously unpublished, culled from a lifetime of work. Details & fragments are intermixed with landscapes, exploring the tension between order & chaos. What is revealed in this new book is more than the science of chaos -- it is the wonder of this photographer's eye & artistry. Annotation. With 102 spectacular full-color photos, this fascinating "field guide" explores the world's natural disorder. New in paperback.
