This book is a complete dissapointmentIt does not offer any real scientific physical models which then can be transformed in an algorithm and being simulated but is is merely a conglomerate of several statistical procedures commonly used in Biology for interpreting data maybe copied by the author and collected from other books as nothing that he presents is new This book does not offer any scientific fundamental insight in how to really model and simulate properly complex biological systems it is also written in a very unscientific popular style The mathematical level corresponds to High School and as the author says in the preface The process of modeling biological systems is certainly not a science but neither is it as unconstrained as the creation of a work of pure art that is evaluated solely on its esthetic content I think that nonsense speaks for itself This author should rather write novels instead of cobbling something together that gets the label scientific on the coverThe book is not trash the author does have collected some of the simplest models there are to describe collections of data in statistical terms but this has NOTHING to do with proper scientific numerical and mathematical modeling and even less with scientific Computing in the field of biological complex systems eg how to simulate membranes proteins using uantum Chemistry or Molecular dynamics techniuesAll in all I judge this book as a complete waste of money and as completely superfluous
