Book Title: Chaos

Author: James Gleick

Book Description:

This book provides an overview of the theory of sensitivity to initial conditions at a level that is understandable by a lay person. The beauty of chaos in nature is thus exposed and made accessible. First reading this helped interest me in pursuing research in the direction of dynamical systems and turbulence.
