This is a step down from Gleick's Chaos book. It has a similar target audience of those who enjoy science books written for the general public. It is a science fiction novel that introduces basic ideas related to nonlinear dynamics. There is a romantic interaction between a human and an extraterrestrial as a part of the narrative.
