A bit dated but still comprehensive of the history of chaos theory, nicely illustrated and well written. From 1989 it does seem a bit breathless at times, but covers the breadth of the discoveries nicely.

Très bon niveau même si un peu trop hardue. Dommage aussi qu'il soit trop centré sur la vie des personnes qui ont contribues à cette théorie du chaos

A survey of time travel literature alongside a look at how the “science “ evolved along with it. Thoughtful and fun, no intensive understanding of physics needed
