- Michael Weisberg: "Simulation and Similarity - using models to understand the world", Oxford University Press, 2014 [Link to amazon.com - I am not an affiliate]
An understandable book written by a philosopher - that, in itself, makes it an all-time-favourite! Weisberg gives a very understandable and helpful characterization of scientific models, especially including computational models. Even Watts and Strogatz' small-world network model is briefly mentioned (p. 29, as an example of a mathematical structure).

Books to read
My personal all-time-favourite list of books on the general topic of network analysis and everything related. Will be edited from time to time.
