"Exceptionally well-written. Time after time, Strogatz gives explanations of concepts that are among the most lucid I have ever read...One of the best introductions to nonlinear dynamics currently available."
"The examples impressed me with their subtlety and incisiveness. Important, delicate distinctions and exceptions are highlighted and accessible."
"More than any undergraduate book that I have seen in recent years, this book can lure students into the mathematical sciences, make them want to change their major, and spark in them some real intellectual curiosity."
