If the Big Data revolution has a presiding genius, it is MIT’s Alex “Sandy” Pentland. Over years of groundbreaking experiments, he has distilled remarkable discoveries significant enough to become the bedrock of a whole new scientific field: social physics. Social Physics: How Good Ideas Spread—The Lessons From a New Science ($27.95) will change the way we think about how we learn and how our social groups work.

Book Passage is pleased to work with the Institute of Leadership Studies at Dominican University of California in San Rafael to present these outstanding events sponsored by Private Ocean.
