Excellent book, explores all that is needed to understand the elements of quantum mechanics and much more in a brilliant way and with lavish illustrations. A must, must for anyone wanting to understand the quantum world without the mathematics. I cannot commend this book highly enough.

This books gives a clear and simple summary of some otherwise very complicated ideas in quantum theory. I also like the presentation: just one idea per page, often with a helpful illustration. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants a clear guide to the basic ideas in quantum theory. I have a number of very good detailed books on quantum theory, but I find this book very helpful as it presents the bullet-points so clearly.

My husband bought a copy of this for our granddaughter and liked it so much he bought a second copy for himself. It is one of a series with 'bite' size pieces of information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction 16 Nov. 2016
By Bob Seidensticker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very accessible. Some of these single-page ideas probably need a textbook just to themselves to explain fully, but this is a great intro.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for quick explanations to provide to other people. 19 Dec. 2016

this is my second copy - to be given as a gift to a nuclear physicist in the family.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the time to understand our modern world. 26 Jun. 2016
By Reg Nordman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was lent this by a friend, Brian, and I am so glad he did. It takes the Brits to be able to clearly write about what could be a complex subject(s). I tried reading it each evening, with some success but found that it truly hung together if I just sat down one Saturday and read it front to back. My engineering school during the late '60s and early 70s gave me an "education" on these topics, but I did not really "learn it" . The strength of this book is to give you just enough glossary to understand a section (There are 7 sections) . to lay out each building block of theory in a section and if there is areal world example - quickly show you. The final sections really flow as more and more applications come forward. These reinforce what up to then seemed just theories into real products we use every day.

As an aside The Nazi persecution of Jewish scientists resulted in many fleeing to the US , which gave the US physics program such a boost. But, the xenophobia of the later MacCarthy era in the US drove much of the talent elsewhere away from the US. Its a lesson we should learn from.
