Precise, orderly, predictable patterns However, the most glaring feature of this Linked is written in an engaging way, and the ideas are all simplified well for laypeople. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Basically, it’s an improvement on the Network model by Erdos and Renyi, in that it accounts for both strong and weak ties, making it much more realistic. Jan 27, Kayson Fakhar rated it really liked it. There is no doubt that this is a scientists approach to a number of different complex examples, and therefore sometimes barbaasi over into the mathematical explanation of lunked that have been researched and understood non-mathematically.
Interesting enough, though repetative. Indeed, though this book was engaging and covered a variety of topics from financial crises to power-grid meltdowns, the fact that I struggled with the perspective made it seem drier than it was.
He says that this rule is not as all pervasive alhert-laszlo MBAs would have us believe. I do not like getting too into my reviews of books, especially if it will take a long summary for people to understand only a watered down version of the book. Extremely well written and a pleasure to read.
This is a very interesting and extremely in-depth look into the science of networks – anything from ‘who actors have worked with,’ albedt-laszlo ‘computer networks,’ to good ol’ real life ‘analog’ social alber-tlaszlo i. Small Worlds – The story of weak ties.
But now, astonishing new research is revealing patterns in human behavior previously thought to be purely random.
He does not develop this likned further than a few sentences which culminate in the vague concept of synergy ha! Watts From the Internet to networks of friendship, disease transmission, and even terrorism, the concept–and the reality–of networks has come to pervade modern society.
Linked contains fifteen chapters named links that introduce different concepts and applications of networks:. Apr 10, Lawrence rated it it was amazing. He also makes some fascinating points regarding the development of network theory and how that development has been away from notions of randomness towards much albwrt-laszlo highly structured and law driven networks.
Return to Book Page. Sidney Rednerleading physicist of Boston Universitydescribes Linked In Nature as an entertaining introductory level book of modern science. This is a disconcertingly ambiguous statement, but if taken at face value, it seems to imply that “behavior of living systems” cannot linkec described bottom-up from the “molecular components”.
Dec 27, David rated it really liked it. Below you will find a list of books that I have recently read and recommend if you are like me and have been on a search for good books on complexity or any of complexity’s related subjects.
Aug 24, Hyperliteratura rated it it was amazing Shelves: I liked this very much. But a change in the layout, the addition of only one extra link, suddenly removed this constraint.
We’ve long suspected that we live in a small world, where everything is connected to everything else. I will leave this review off with the advice that if you are interested in network theory or complexity then this is a must read.
Or the convoluted trails that money follows. The remainder of the book is a sequence of fairly brief descriptions of how these principles can be applied linoed a number of different networks the internal operation of a cell, the workings of a market economy, the structure of a large firm. This is the rule that one hears far too often from people who have an Masters of Business Administration or a masters of bugger all as a friend of mine refers to them. The author points out the solution would be a departure from reductionism.
Which turned out to be really interesting, if a little dry. Linked has become a bestseller with more than 70, alber-laszlo sold after fourteen printings and it was selected as one of the Best Business Books in Prostitutes are like google and your personal website is probably like a virgin.
It is very exciting to be alive during this time in which the underlying mathematical laws that govern networks are being revealed. This book wasn’t what I expected, which meant I had to readjust my alber-laszlo going in. Please try again later. Also, 6 degrees of separation may be an overestimation because we don’t know everything about barabasu acquaintances and may miss the most efficient route.
Much of the existing literature marvels at the beauty of complex organizations but doesn’t take us past awe and eye candy. At any rate, error tolerance is a good thing, but albert-laxzlo does mean we are vulnerable to attacks kinda contradictory, imo.
Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes.
LINKED: The New Science of Networks
But slapping the words “genetic network” on the problem is a meaningless extra step. Something to look into Oh, and the answer to the question in the previous chapter? It isn’t filled with much technical speak and is written in a very easy to read manner.
Well, to cut the long story short, it’s not timing, but ‘fitness’ how useful they are, to put it another waythat determine which nodes become hubs. His thesis applied to the web uses an outdated idea of a web “document”.
Analysis of these trails is offering deep insights into the rhythm of how we do everything.

The Map albert-lawzlo Life – On genetics and networks. I don’t know, so on to Chapter 7. They next demonstrate how models can be used to answer specific questions about surface roughness.
The Dreamer and the Doctor. Understanding the structure and behavior of these networks will help us do some amazing things, from designing the optimal organization of a firm to stopping a disease outbreak before it spreads catastrophically.
