James Gleick Books – One Smart Guy

The Information by James Gleick

This page is going to serve as James Gleick books headquarters here on this blog. I’ve been a Gleick fan since reading Chaos. He is able to write science books that are accessible for a relative nitwit like yours truly, and he understands the importance of stories.

He’s brilliant.

Here’s the list. As I read them, I’ll get brief reviews up on other pages, which this page will link out to.

List of James Gleick’s Books

The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood

Chaos: Making a New Science

Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman

Isaac Newton

What Just Happened: A Chronicle From the Information Frontier

Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything

Any fans here? Got a favorite?

And if you want more on the man himself, here’s Gleick’s official website.

Alas, none of these are on my list of free Kindle books, but they’re worth paying for, or at least worth a trip to the library.
