Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the prior edition:

"Exceptionally well-written. Time after time, Strogatz gives explanations of concepts that are among the most lucid I have ever read...One of the best introductions to nonlinear dynamics currently available."
SIAM Review

"The examples impressed me with their subtlety and incisiveness. Important, delicate distinctions and exceptions are highlighted and accessible."
Physics Today

"More than any undergraduate book that I have seen in recent years, this book can lure students into the mathematical sciences, make them want to change their major, and spark in them some real intellectual curiosity."
UMAP Journal

I am using this book as a "practice-first" guide to mathematics for the guy in his thirties, who struggles to understand why his high education was not done right 15 years ago, and do it so by himself this time.
Accompanied by the lectures on the subject (search the title on youtube), this is likely the best book on math out there for motivated unexperienced reader.
It will throw you to many practical fields of mathematics, and, having enough time, one can continue wandering and hunting for different subjects while eating this dish chapter by chapter (or lecture by lecture). For me, who has the luxury of not following any education plan, this is a delicious experience.

The second edition kept that exceptional quality of the first one, but added only a few new examples. If one already has the first edition, which is my case, the second one is totally dispensable.

Format: Paperback
Here is the subject elegantly pared down to just what a student absolutely needs to know, with Strogatz's trademark elegance and wit. The book is a springboard to many field of science, showing how insights in one field illuminate another.
