Stephen Wolfram's A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE is the biggest disappointment I have ever experienced in my reading. If his book was a program it would be analogous to making a long journey to the edge of the universe in search of the meaning of life ony to be left in the end asking 'That's it?' Nada? 'No supreme being, no purpose?' or that the answer to the meaning of life the Universe and everything is 42. I've been interested in the subject that is the core of A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE for many years and perhaps I'm disappointed because there is nothing essentially new in the book. I enjoyed the style of the book although at times there seems a bit too much precise repetition. I probably completely missed any nesting in the book. What I found most annoying is the number of times Wolfram used phrases like 'intuition', 'my guess', 'my speculation is...' . It's really a very interesting book but I would compare it to Einstein's autobiography sooner than Newton's Principia. I really don't know what to make of A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE. What do other people think of it?
