Reviews

"Linked should be mandatory reading for academics as a primer in good writing. Barabasi may be a scientist, but he didn't neglect his liberal arts education; his Renaissance man's curiosity roves across history, economics, medicine, and pop culture. He writes in understandable lay-speak glittering with wit."--Boston Globe
"Linked could alter the way we think about all of the networks that affect our lives."--New York Times
"Linked gets really interesting, showing how this new science promises to change the way we conduct everything from medical treatment to the war on terrorism."--Washington Monthly
"Linked is the best choice for the layperson, because [Barabasi] minimizes the math and writes elegantly."--Detroit Free Press
"A lively look at networks through time."--Washington Post
"A pleasure to read.... It's the fact that all of these networks can be explained and understood using the same concepts, and the same mathematics, that makes this book so important."--Christian Science Monitor (A Best Book of the Year)
"A sweeping look at a new and exciting science."--Donald Kennedy, editor-in-chief, Science Magazine
"All researchers dream of making a discovery that will transform their field. Albert-Laszlo Barabasi can go one better. In just three years, his discovery has started making waves in fields as diverse as ecology, molecular biology, computer science, and quantum physics."--New Scientist
"Captivating.... Linked is a playful, even exuberant romp through an exciting new field."--Time Out New York
"Remarkable.... A sweeping look at a new and exciting science."--Science
"These laws of networks may prove as robust and universal as Newton's laws of motion."--strategy + business
(A Best Business Book of the Year)
