### Praise for Other Books by Stephen Wolfram

Get inside the head of one of our era's most creative and influential minds as he explores everything from communicating with extraterrestrial life to finding the fundamental underpinnings of reality. Adventures of a Computational Explorer is a deep and delightful intellectual odyssey.

Stephen Wolfram is a genius. But that's not the most uncommon of his attributes. He is fiercely and fully independent, in every possible sense of the word. Wolfram does everything, literally everything, on his own terms.

In our time, Stephen Wolfram, once a Wunderkind and now the widely acknowledged creator of Mathematica and originator ofA New Kind of Science, is an outstanding contemporary participant in this conversation.

Stephen Wolfram is a quirky, groundbreaking genius, destined for the science pantheon. So novel are his seemingly simple ideas that it may take half a century before the public adopts them.

A first-class intellectual thrill... No one has contributed more seminally to this new way of thinking about the world.
