"Complex Adaptive Systems"

I finished this book a couple of weeks ago. It's a high-level overview of complex systems, describing how they're defined and work. The first half of the book I found kind of dull, but around Chapter 7 it starts getting interesting as the authors start introducing real-world models. Their discussion on cellular automata was also enlightening. However, near the end the book things starts to fade again.

I think this is an OK introduction to complexity, but I've read better ones that I'd recommend.
