Reviews

`In the category...of works of brilliant originality that stimulate and enlighten and can sometimes even change the way we understand the world' New York Times Review of Books

`An illuminating account of the pervasive and often bizarre qualities of social networks...We like to think we are largely in control of our day-to-day lives, yet most of what we do, and even the way we feel, is significantly influenced by those around us - and those around them, and those around them....The authors excel at drawing out the devil in the detail: their explanations of how the architecture of networks dictates their dynamics are compelling....profound' Michael Bond, New Scientist
