A Man Who Would Shake Up Science:

Now Mr. Wolfram is finally publishing his work, and his claims surpass
the most extravagant speculation. He has, he argues, discovered
underlying principles that affect the development of everything from the
human brain to the workings of the universe, requiring a revolutionary
rethinking of physics, mathematics, biology and other sciences. He
believes he has shown how the most complex processes in nature can arise
out of elemental rules, how a wealth of diverse phenomena - the infinite
variety of snowflakes and the patterns on sea shells - are generated
from seemingly trivial origins.

Ok, I admit I want to read this book, all 1,200 pages of it.
