It is a revised and enlarged version of his 1977 book entitled Fractals: Form, Chance and Dimension, which in turn was a revised, enlarged, and translated version of his 1975 French book, Les Objects Fractals: Forme, Hasard et Dimension. American Scientist put the book in its one hundreds books of 20th century science.
As technology has improved mathematically accurate, computer-drawn fractals have become more detailed.

These visualisations have added to persuasiveness of the books and their impact on the scientific community.
