Information theory, explains Seife (journalism, New York U.), is about far more than how computers work; it concerns "how atoms interact with each other and how black holes swallow stars." Following up on his popular explication of the mathematical and scientific history of Zero, he here offers the general reader a tour of the boundaries of contemporary information theory.
