Alessio Erioli's insight:

"This book is designed to be an overview to the core concepts within complexity theory, presented in an intuitive form that should be accessible to anyone with an interest in the subject. Complexity theory is an exciting new area that is offering us a fresh perspective on many important issues, such as understanding our financial system, ecosystems, and large social organizations. The aim of this book is to bring the often abstract and sophisticated concepts of this subject down to earth and understandable in an intuitive form. After starting with an overview to complex systems science and its context, we will focus on five of the core concepts within complexity theory."
