Interesting mix of history, science, and habitual human behavior. Achilles’ Heel The Tenth Link: But barabzsi proposes additional “power laws”, somehow independent of other, mathematical, laws, in keeping with the assumption of a law-based nature. But that does not come barbasi a surprise if you read the linked book, the author almost wanted to say the whole graph theory thing is “Made in Hungary”, I don’t mind a little bit of patriotism here and there but too much salt is not fun.
Only there, with just a small connecting flight to Toronto left, I ventured to the bookstore and hastily favored this book, despite the uninspiring reviews on the back cover, the words “network science” got my eye.

Here is my dilemma; I truly did enjoy reading this book. This book is difficult to recommend unless you have a pre-notion about Einstein’s pa The main question of the book, “Can human behavior be predicted by applying the quantum physics principles of the Dispersion Theory of Particles?
The bestselling author of Linked returns with a ground breaking new theory that will enthrall fans of The Tipping Point Can we scientifically predict our future? Thank God for that Muslim army that finally put an end to his hellish crazy impaling reign.
In fact, most surfaces in nature are fractals. By leveraging the power of big data and historic case studies, Barabasi reveals the unspoken rules behind who truly gets ahead and why, and outlines the twelve laws that govern this phenomenon and how we can use them to our own advantage. From network robustness to the spread of disease, this section offers a potpourri of topics on this rapidly expanding frontier of the new science.

The author takes a very circuitous route in trying to promote a rather simple idea: See all books by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi. But oh well, now the positives: Although he lives and works in the United States, he has family in Transylvania and speaks fluent Hungarian.
Everything is within a routine or expected area of acting. In recent years, scientists from a range of fields–including mathematics, physics, computer science, sociology, and biology–have been pursuing these questions and building a new “science of networks. I must also add that I was partly swayed to read this book by the endorsement from Nassim Nicholas Taleb on the back cover; that endorsement has unfortunately harmed Taleb’s credibility in my eyes.
Networks are everywhere, from the Internet, to social networks, and the genetic networks that determine our biological existence. Scientists and pseudo scientists have been pursuing this mystery for hundreds and perhaps thousands of years.
And Finally, I fell like a fool with his description of Lifelinear, I even told Theban at work, before doing further progress and having to come back with my tail between my legs to report back that it was a hoax. Along with this is mixed the author’s opinions of diminishing privacy in the age baraabsi cellphones and big data.
The main question of the book, “Can human behavior be predicted by applying the quantum physics principles of the Dispersion Theory of Particles? Indeed, networks are pervasive–from the human brain to the Internet to the economy to our baraabasi of friends. These narratives illustrate how predicting human behavior has long been the obsession, sometimes the duty, of those in power.
