Please note that the another one star review mainly commented on the kindle rather than the CONTENT of this book! As one of the pioneers of information theory based on entropy and/or negentropy, the author presented the concepts and related topics with deep insights and exceptionally solid logic. Although most of his examples are coming from physics (especially thermodynamics), the general considerations are indeed beyond that range, embedded into the modern statistics and information theory. I do recommend this book.
Excellent content, with the bonus of an EXCELLENT typesetting in its English version, which was not the case for its French one

I first saw this book in its French version and could not concentrate on it (very poor typography, unfortunately common for many science books published in France in the 1960's). And I was amazed by the quality of its English version (much more professional typographic work). The book itself gives a lot of insight about entropy, including many examples attributed to Shannon. It is amazing to see what Mandelbrot published as soon as 1952, while he was not yet THE 1974 Mandelbrot, who formalized the fractal theory. If you can afford it, that book is a MUST in any University or even honest man's library. Cartesian French approach with English typesetting is pure joy.

The one star applies only to the Kindle addition of this book, which is flawed. The book itself is an excellent discussion of the interplay between information and entropy in understanding how information works in the physical world. It requires a lot of mathematical equations, almost all of which are simple expressions, but the Kindle edition does not capture them all accurately. Some equations are missing, some have the wrong symbols, and some are garbled. It looks like the Kindle edition was produced by a machine with character recognition and never proof read by a person. I finally bought the paperback edition just so that I could finish the book.
