"Elegantly approachable descriptions... with a refreshing emphasis on recent research. Highly satisfying." (The Guardian)
"Sure to become a classic." (physicsworld.com)
"Quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation and virtual particles are all explained with the author's characteristic lighthearted touch. Readers who've shied away from popular treatments of physics in the past may find his cheerful discussion a real treat." (Publishers Weekly)
"It's hard to imagine a better way for the mathematically and scientifically challenged to grasp basic quantum physics." (Booklist)
So simple, even a dog could understand!

Orzell is at his best when explaining the general concepts of quantum physics to Emmy, who incidentally is very smart and is even biligual on account of her German ancestry. I got the impression that his dog is considerably brighter than most of his physics students. Where Orzell falls down, for me, is in the mind-numbing minutiae of the explanations. At these points, not even Emmy could get a bark in. However, I'm not a scientist, so perhaps this book speaks louder to those who naturally suit lab coats.
The best chapter is the final one, which debunks a collection of quasi-scientific claims for quantum physics. It is good to know that scientists can dismiss the outlandish claims that can be made about their discoveries, and are likely to reject any publically funded adoption of them.Read more ›
