Chaos Theory

Loading...
Efficiency expert Frank Allen makes lists. And lists of lists. He has time scheduled, planned, parsed and pigeonholed. Then one day he's 10 minutes late (not due to any inefficiency on his own part, of course) and that sparks a comic chain reaction that puts Frank in bed with a hottie, in the maternity ward with a very expectant mother and in trouble with his wife, who doesn't buy his innocent explanations. His orderly life is out of control-- and wow, is chaos fun!

The Panel Templeton prize winning cosmologist George Ellis, Imperial College string theorist Michael Duff and American philosopher of physics Nancy Cartwright confront unexplained events and untangle cause and effect.
