Each of the investigations presented are self contained, using different approaches to investigate queueing for restrooms, market economy, email data mining, audio and image analysis of heartbeats, simulations of schooling, and artificial life.
Chang begins each chapter with a light hearted question, then proceeds to answer the question by applying a computer model using Ruby, followed by analysis using R. Sometimes, as in the email data mining chapter, he simply notes unusual points without further research, but in most of the experiments, he demonstrates that current theories e. The book sparked plenty of ideas as I was reading it, even though many of the Chang's experiments simulation of flocking, artificial life have been well covered in other books.
Each approach is well explained, and should be easy to follow along, although I don't think this is a suitable book for a beginning programmer. It is also not a good introduction to either Ruby or R. But the real purpose of the book is not to teach programming or statistics, but to show how to use computing and curiosity to answer questions about the world around us, and to explore the extraordinary depth of everyday things.
Aug 05, Steef Jacobson rated it it was amazing. The chapter were fun to get into and it even made my kids interested in the book. Jul 22, Dgg32 rated it it was amazing Shelves: programming. I want to read a book about simulation for a long time. But my previous encounters are either too serious or too light.

This book is the one that I find both fun and scientifically serious. Plus R is my assess, but Ruby is new, so I learn some Ruby on the way. More important, I have the first taste how simulation looks like. Some errors in the code section, but the source code in github is corrected. Also some minor misplacement. Nevertheless, great book!!

Book Review: Exploring Everyday Things with R and Ruby - RubyFlow
It might be also useful for learners of ruby and R, although on the ruby codes I considered some of the practices dangerous to use in productions systems, but it small simulations the example codes were fine. It was a good inspiration and reading this book moved me back to my primary and secondary school where I used to make simulations and visualisations just for fun.
This book gave me the motivation Inspiring book about making simulations with Ruby and visualizing the results in R. This book gave me the motivation to do such games again. Oct 27, Matthew Campbell rated it liked it. I've been interested in reading more about simulating systems to experiment with emergent behavior, but this book isn't really it.
I think it's probably a good intro to the basics of simulation in general, but there wasn't as much talk about why he changed his models when he did, and I'd already seen most of what was on offer here in other places. Not a bad book, but not what I was looking for. The parts on analyzing the results with R was nice, but also never went really deep. Aug 22, Derrick Schneider rated it liked it.
