A Library Journal Best Scientific & Technical Book 1996.

The author of The Tao of Physics and The Turning Point explores the shift from linear thinking to systems thinking in the sciences. The web of life is the "interrelationships and interdependencies of psychological, biological, social, and cultural phenomena."
