Scale: The Universal Laws of Growth, Innovation, Sustainability and the Pace of Life in Organisms, Cities, Economies and Companies von Geoffrey West

Scale (2017) is a glimpse into the hidden and fascinating world of the mathematical relationships that tie the world together. The blinks describe how such laws connect everything from microscopic organisms to international metropolises, and what they can tell us about the behavior of complex systems.

This is a Blinkist staff pick

“These blinks were somewhat of an unexpected delight. Scale covers the often surprising laws that govern how various phenomena relate as they scale, and their consequences; from why transatlantic steamships were initially considered a silly idea to why you don’t have to fear meeting Godzilla in the streets anytime soon. A really interesting read!”
