    Thanks Geoff. Finally got the hard copy here in Japan, glad to see the Kindle (just purchased) and I want to say thank you for pricing it so affordably.

    The advantage of the paper version is that one can write comments in the margins! A very valuable survey of facts and possibilities, the most shocking fact perhaps being that since the automation of stock exchange dealing the international currency markets are turning over 50 times faster than need be: the equivalent of the world’s GDP in a few days rather than a couple of years. Almost the only points I take issue with Geoff is where he says perception “is a process of cognition that is deeply wired into our brains and has nothing to do with logic”. How, then, does he think computers work? What he hasn’t understood is the difference between Kahneman’s “fast” and “slow” thinking (i.e. serial (sound) and parallel) pictorial organisation of neural logic). He does see that “a picture is worth a thousand words”, yet he merely writes about his key topics: systems and the feedbacks within them. He doesn’t show how electronics engineers portray them and the dynamic complex numbers involved, nor how computer linguists portray an equivalent complexity in the interpretation of words. All of which could easily be remedied in a 2nd Edition (which would hopefully include an index).
