    I really enjoyed (many years ago now) Chaos by James Gleick. It's a
    nicely written trip through lots of the ideas about complex systems that
    underpin much of biology (and therefore much of memetics). Not
    mainstream to us here but well worth a look. Actually it was a while ago
    now so maybe it has been superceded since.

    And I'd reccomend How the Leopard Changed its Spots by Brian Goodwin -
    it has been mixed up with a lot of other stuff on here of late, so I
    think reading it for yourself is worthwhile.
