The Smart Swarm: How Understanding Flocks, Schools, and Colonies Can Make Us Better at Communicating, Decision Making, and Getting Things Done The Smart Swarm: How Understanding Flocks, Schools, and Colonies Can Make Us Better at Communicating, Decision Making, and Getting Things Done

by Peter Miller

Book Reviews

"I loved The Smart Swarm. It's been a while since I was this stimulated by a book, or saw so many practical applications. And what a great read."
--Don Tapscott

"With an eye for detail and an easy style, Peter Miller explains why swarm intelligence has scientists buzzing."
--Steven Strogatz, author of Sync, and Professor of Applied Mathematics, Cornell University

"Miller informs, engages, entertains, and even surprises in this thought-provoking study of problem making and problem solving, and through the comparison of human and insect scenarios, shows how social cues and signals can either bring about social cooperation or destruction."
--Publishers Weekly

"Most people can't fathom that ants, bees, and other social insects have found solutions to some of modern society's most vexing problems. In The Smart Swarm, Peter Miller offers a fascinating and articulate tour of what these creatures can do, how the do it, and the lessons for humans. This book is a gem, with a message that is as extraordinarily counterintuitive as it is valuable."
--Michael J. Mauboussin, Chief Investment Strategist at Legg Mason Capital Management and author of Think Twice: Harnessing the Power of Counterintuition

"[Peter Miller] has proven that there is intelligent life on earth, but it is not necessarily us. What a delightful, eye-opening book."
--Martin Cruz Smith, author of Gorky Park and Stalin's Ghost
