Thanks to Boing Boing for pointing this out. Steven’s book “Emergence” is a great introduction to a facinating area of research; networks and emergent systems. Steven notes how dangerous Bambi actually is. Bill Bryson made a similar point in his book “Notes from a Big Country”. He found interesting statistics about the number of people injured by beds, paperclips and other seemingly harmless objects. There’s also a great chapter on the Moose - funniest thing I have ever read.
