Too Much Information

by OldMack on Nov 29, 2012

This book is more than enough about "Information Theory." Although Gleick is an excellent writer and knows what he's writing about and does it well, one feels inundated as if by a flood, with so much background information; in my opinion he could have cut 30% of the text and been successful at conveying the principals of the theory theory.
