This book, as its name implies, is about playing with fractals, strange attractors and chaos theory. By "playing" is meant writing computer programs that will generate fractals and other related forms. By learning the principles behind the shapes and the code that creates these images, you will gain a far greater understanding of and appreciation for the subject. You will also be able to experiment with these concepts on a level that you could probably never achieve if you were just randomly tweaking some sliders in someone else's application.
