Description
What do the success of Wikipedia and the art of throwing a successful party have in common with insect behavior? All three involve a form of group cooperation known as swarm intelligence, suggests the author of How to Dunk a Doughnut and Weighing the Soul. In this book Len Fisher uses scientific methods and humor to examine the productive lives of ants, bees, and fish, while looking for ways in which mass behavior can have a positive impact on human lives as well.

"From locusts watching Star Wars to Murphy’s Law of Management, The Perfect Swarm hits all the buttons. This is a wonderful tour through the new mathematics of swarms, flocks, and crowds, and it makes the emerging science of complex systems seem simple. Easy to read and highly informative."—Ian Stewart
