This is an extraordinarily personal yet magnificently poetic exploration of one man's confrontation with illness, parenthood, and survival. The poems have a musicality and a lyricism that manages to weave together moments of emotional anguish and scientific reflection (Mr. Putman is also a scientist and a musician) that continues to resonate for me. The poems are complemented by illustrations by Marine Putman. The illustrations perfectly convey Matthew Putman's turbulent inner world, a world where beauty and chaos, joy and terror, must co-exist. I loved this book.

To begin, I would like to use a popular (if moderately inaccurate) phrasing of the second law of thermodynamics by Clausius: "The entropy of the universe tends to a maximum."

Everyday, we are all faced with numerous challenges in life that tend to increase the chaos in our lives, chaos that can even threaten our very survival. But it is this chaos that can inspire people to explore their own lives and find what the chaos has created. Magnificent Chaos is an example of such introspection: we are made immediately aware that most of this work was created as Matthew was confronting his own mortality and development of his family, challenges that many of us will eventually consider in our own lives. Through his poems (and the illustrations of Marine Putman), we get to travel along on his journey through chaos and witness the reflections and development of a young scientist, husband, musician, cancer survivor, and father (in no particular order). This book will remind you that it is curiosity in the chaos within you and around you that will allow you to witness what life has wrought out of you, and perhaps find the tools to reshape your own life.

Being transported to life in the multiverse; from the smallest particle to the depths of our universe, or maybe I should say, our soul?
Mr. Putman's poems take you to all places and everything in between through his personal life-changing experiences, composed into a beautiful collection of poems that are accompanied by his wife's wonderful illustrations.

Had this book for over a year now, re-reading periodically. Every time I find something fresh and touching, both emotionally and intellectually. Still love it as much as I did initially, maybe even more!

HOW IS THIS... Magnificent chaos blends the art of Marine Putman with the tension of her husband's words in ways that make the book a moving experience to read. NAJEE
