Think Complexity by Allen B. Downey

Yesterday I picked up a physical copy of Allen Downey's new Python book Think Complexity.  Allen does a great job on both fronts in this book, presenting key topics in Complexity Science and also clear Python code.  

Last year some students and I worked on a Genetic Algorithms case study that was inspired by Melanie Mitchell's book Complexity.  Our work on the case study was NOT for any course and NOT for pay or credit in any way.  It was "just for fun", and we learned a lot together.  But... since Allen is looking for Case Study submissions, we just may be resurrecting the Python code we wrote and submitting a new chapter for the next edition of this great little book.
