To Be Announced Units: Say it, a management book, a psychology book, a data analysis book, it fits em all very beautifully. I highly recommend this book.
No trivia or quizzes yet. To be fair, the authors do, in many places, note that accounting for more complete descriptions of reality is a matter of continuing research. John Kleinberg is insightful including a comprehensive review of most of the literature in the field. The writing style is very good, for the most part.
Keeping in a note about the slightly complex nature of the mathematical equations, which always could be skipped without easleyy any loss of the concepts delivered, one should definitely give a read to understand the basic working of any form of network existing between people and mechanisms to how to get things done using it!
CS Network analysis: Course outline Networks are prima facie a more realistic setting for a lot of economic activity than the nebulous void of earlier models but this is not an advantage if no attempt to test those models is made.
Over the past decade there has been a growing public fascination with the complex connectedness of modern society. Aug 25, Peter Aronson rated it really liked it. Course outline The implications raised in the first few chapters should be enough to convince any rational person of the incredible power of network and graph theory, and how it can make the world a better or worse place.
Excellent text illuminating and bringing together different aspects of the interplay of individual incentives and aggregate behavior.
I found myself handpicking chapters from the ToC instead of reading it sequentially, and got a lot of value from it.
That was an awesome and very informative read. This book gives is a wonderful insight complex inter-connected network which has been constructed by digital, geographical, academic and social ties netwogks people sharing commonality on various grounds have formed.

By David Easley and Jon Kleinberg In recent years there has been a growing public fascination with the complex "connectedness" of modern society. This connectedness is found in many incarnations: in the rapid growth of the Internet and the Web, in the ease with which global communication now takes place, and in the ability of news and information as well as epidemics and financial crises to spread around the world with surprising speed and intensity. These are phenomena that involve networks, incentives, and the aggregate behavior of groups of people; they are based on the links that connect us and the ways in which each of our decisions can have subtle consequences for the outcomes of everyone else. Networks, Crowds, and Markets combines different scientific perspectives in its approach to understanding networks and behavior. Drawing on ideas from economics, sociology, computing and information science, and applied mathematics, it describes the emerging field of study that is growing at the interface of all these areas, addressing fundamental questions about how the social, economic, and technological worlds are connected. The book is based on an inter-disciplinary course that we teach at Cornell. The book, like the course, is designed at the introductory undergraduate level with no formal prerequisites.
