Interesting, but uses often tenuous links as effects Reads like the wiki game or just how I browse Wikipedia in general short attention span per in depth topic Some really interesting tidbits, though. I wrote about my ongoing love affair with James Burkes Connections and The Day the Universe Changed I can t be as enthusiastic about The Pinball Effect This is still James Burke showing how this led to that and the information is still first rate The writing, however, seemed tired to me, as if Burke was thinking I m so sick of this connections crap but it s what I m known for, it s what people want and I have a mortgage to pay, so while writing, as if his enthusiasm for his subject was no longer there a pity There s also an attempt to make the book hypertexty with margin notes to where else in the book you ll find links between this and that This is I m sure a great book for people unfamiliar with Burke s Connections and The Day the Universe Changed and probably a good read for those less finicky than I.But if you re like me heaven forbid , it s probably not for you. It s really two and half due to its creative alternative paths in which it can be read. I loved the idea of this book but was less impressed by the book itself I started it a couple of years ago and gave up after a few chapters This year I started it again and took only a month to finish it, but in large part just so I could mark it as finished I am very interested in both science and history, and found lots of the info in the book interesting, but a lot of it is trivia than an explanation of how ideas developed and spread I like trivia too, but not a book length collection of it Some of the connections really do explain things, but few of them are given enough space to really get a feel for how things happened Some of the connections are not this led to that but this person know that person or this person shared an interest with that person, connections which could be causal but other times did not appear to be, or if they were it was not explained clearly Still, I did learn some things, such as the roots of the Romantic movement, which I do not recall reading about previously. I guess this book may deserve a better rating, given that the author seems to really know a lot of things But, I found the whole book totally un readable, with too many unnecessary details leading nowhere and too many things that only confuse me I guess one of the reviews is great in saying that this book is kind of a wipidepia No I would rather browse randomly on wiki Instead, this book tries to create various things into a chapter to prove a very simple idea everything in the world is interconnected to each other, i.e we live in a web I kind of read it page for page from page 1 to pager 120 Then I totally lose my interest in reading any details of this book, so I chose to browse it and finish it strictly, not really reading the whole book , finish the rest 150 pages in a 3 hour flight from BJ to SZ Honestly, I also managed to watch a movie on this flight goodbye richard , which i guess is much better use of my time than reading this book. An interesting collection of stories and factoids and their connections to show how knowledge has the pinball effect that is it leads to unpredictable outcomes For instance, someone invented a technique to dip wires in molten zinc to protect and strengthen it to galvanize later on it s used to protect food in cans from getting black over time It is quite broad in range in that it s likely to contain a lot of little new stories factoids even to a reader who reads a lot of non fiction But don t expect some sudden enlightenment about how things are connected In fact I have to pick a bone sometimes the connection is just way too forced And the twisted narrative actually impedes understanding as there is just too many twists and characters Try this In one chapter, you re promised a story of something insignificant bottle cap leading to cosmic significance how Hubble changed our view of universe But the connection is not causal at all and quit often far fetched A guy WP invented bottle cap to keep frizz in frizzy drinks guy told his employee Gillet the secret of success is to make things people throw away Gillet listened and invented razor So far so good Razor is made of steel A steel maker BH invented some steel making techniques The steel maker happens to be a clock maker too Another clock maker JH made far better clocks Clock is vitally important to sea navigation Sea farers need light houses When two lighthouses were destroyed, local merchants found some guy JS to repair Guy happens to have invented a boring machine 4 years later another guy JW invented a better boring machine, which makes canon making easier Still with me Now Napoleon is involved because he used a lot of canons made by JW When Napoleon is done fighting some war, people were killed leaving homeless kids Guy JHP decides to educate them Another guy JFH liked his methods of education JFH moved to a university where he met another guy EW EW has a pupil GTF One of GTF s interests was measure star luminosity We finally reach some cosmic significance. This book was supremely interesting, but readers need pay very close attention, since the subject matter quickly pings around like the titular pinball One of the most disappointing aspects of this book, however, was that it was around page 200 before any women were mentioned as having any impact on historical events and they were not mentioned by name by a number of women mathematicians , followed closely by where John Mauchly was then teaching one of the mathematicians married him Perhaps it s just the lens through which I view the world but I found it to be a one sided, patriarchal albeit interesting representation of world events I just wish women were mentioned by name along with their achievements, rather than only being referred to as some guy s wife.
