The Information, by James Gleick

One of my favorite books of all time is 1987’s Chaos, an introduction to the mathematics of chaos theory, by this author.

I was excited to learn that Gleick was winner of the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books 2012 with a new title, The Information.

If you’re interested in the progression of human understanding as a result of information technologies, then this book is for you.

It is not an easy read, but it is an important one. I give it my highest recommendation.
