Positive Linking: the reviews are in…

Volterra partner Paul Ormerod’s latest book ‘Positive Linking’ – an examination of how the power of networks can revolutionise the world – hit the bookshelves last month and has received a glowing reception from both the printed and online press. Brian Appleyard’s review in the Sunday Times says “network theorists have all seized the opportunity to fill the vacuum left by rationalism. In this book Ormerod brilliantly brings it all together… this book is more than stimulating, it is fun.” (read the full review here). Claire Jones (Financial Times) describes the book as “Part a critique of policy makers, part a history of economic thought, this will do much to popularise network economics.” Read more about the book here, or order your own copy here.
