Rating: 5 out of 5 brilliant book! for professionals and also beginners! This book is about the uses of simulation in the social sciences, its various methods and implementations (with examples in lisp).I like it, because its easy understandable even for non-computer-scientists, and there are actual and scientific important research-examples at the end of every chapter. I presume that it is the only book which provides a global introduction to this field (especially with this social-science background knowledge). A sociologican who is interessted in research about complex social phenomena should read this book! After doing this, I hunger for a programming-course!
