Well I did a little reading of the book, and wasn?t too impressed with what I was reading. And it seems too much like (and I?m being a little crass) an infomercial for his book and his company Mathmatica. His writing style is not great, and wasn't sure I wanted to slog through the nearly 1200 pages. Anyway, I decided to check out some reviews on the book, because I don't know about that level of science. Well the reviews were not very good. So I've desided to use the book as a door stop.
A New Kind of Science by Stephen Wolfram book is potentially useful to sophisticated mathematicians with expertise in cellular automata. It contains some interesting examples and some excellent computer graphics. However, because the work contains many outright mistakes and micsonceptions it is not a book for a beginner. It was published by Wolfram, using his own money as is the case with many "vanity press" books. It certainly is not a book for those interested in physics.
This book has received scathing reviews in the professional mathematics and science community, and for good reason. It is of value only to a properly prepared and very skeptical reader.
