Complex Evolutionary Dynamics in Urban-Regional and Ecologic-Economic Systems: From Catastrophe to Chaos and Beyond - J. Barkley Rosser

I really like that I'm the only rating and review for this book so far. 

It starts slow with an almost encyclopedic categorization and analysis of different mathematical models, to then synthesize several concepts from economic disciplines into an obviously incomplete whole while finishing with looming chapters about the impending ecological problems mankind will face.

This is a book that deserves to be re-read while performing simulations on custom software finely tuned to play and enjoy the equations provided.

Book Review: Waiting for Prince Harry

An entertaining little read with an endearing protagonist. This read was for sheer enjoyment. Ellis used a supercute little pop quiz device to begin each chapter that actually proved really integral to the story.


I gave it four stars because the middle was a little soggy. A little too much time spent adulating each other. A little too much telling instead of showing. Kylie, the viewpoint character, told us at least 20 times how sexy Harrison looked. I guess I am in favor of painting the picture and letting the reader draw her own conclusions.


One other thing--though the book avoided (glossed over) any truly intimate scenes, Ellis' characters use the f-word liberally. Now, I am sure that this use is in character with a rough-and-tumble pro hockey player from Boston, but if that bothers you, you will be cringing a lot throughout.


But overall, lots of fun, and well written, too.

San Francisco Chronicle: The Literary City

An interactive map of San Francisco Bay Area literary references, history, and places.


I wonder if there are similar maps for other major cities, like Chicago or New York or London.  Though some of them might get a bit crowded, given all the possible content.
