...appears to be aimed to those who have not read any of Dr Pickover's books before and who want to use the power of a modern desktop computer to emulate and possibly advance on ideas in chaos theory that appeared in the late 1980s and the 1990s. If that is your purpose, then buying this one book may well be a very good move...
John de Rivaz, Fractal Report
...this collection of articles will appeal especially to programmers, professional and amateur alike. It will also catch the eye of scientists and mathematicians along with interested lay people. This book has substantial academic content, but it can also be appreciated at the level of a coffee table book, to be dipped into for its wealth of ideas and stunning illustrations.
K.J. Falconer, Fractals
...fascinating new book ...fractal artists and scientists will find inspiration in this excellent showcase of the relevance of chaos to the broader field of science.
R. Girvan, Scientific Computing World
...Although this is not a deep book, scientifically speaking, even professional mathematicians and physicist can find some inspiration in it.
...This book is enhanced with numerous color illustrations, a comprehensive index, and the many computer program examples encourage reader involvement.
