4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed, 16 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must admit I'm impressed. With a PhD in Astrophysics and Masters degrees in Maths, Physics and Software Engineering, it's rare indeed that I encounter a book which leaves me feeling thoroughly and irredeemably thick. Even Penrose's Road To Reality didn't leave me floundering quite as often. This is not a exactly a critique of Aaronson's book, but take it rather as a warning; despite its breezy style, this is not a book for the casual reader or dilettante. It will, however, reward the careful reader with a great deal more than the title promises. Aaronson has thought more deeply and more clearly than most about the nature of quantum physics and the fundamental limits of knowledge, and it is worth the reader's effort to at least attempt to follow the subtleties of his exposition.
