An eminently readable, logical and well argued alternative to the convoluted theories of the more complex Quantum Mechanics' attempt to determine and explain the basic particles from which the Universe is constructed.
Yes, it re-introduces the concept of an "aether" through which energy flows in space but this, in itself, could help to explain why space is neither totally empty nor at absolute zero. Conversely, the concept of the aether removes the need to discover a gravitron, for which no evidence has yet been found other than, perhaps, a gap in the equivalent to the Periodic Table for Quantum Mechanics' particles.
This alternative approach removes the need for logically absurd explanations such as those for the results of the double-slit experiment and its description of the likely appearance of an electron agrees amazingly well with the photograph of a single electron taken at Lund University.
The simple algebra introduced by Yee was welcome in support of his text as was his provision of units for (most of) the variables used, although there is an error at Kindle location 449 (27%) whereby the radius of an electron is given in Kilogrammes rather than Metres. No other typographical errors were detected.
It would be interesting to have Yee's approached compared with that of String Theory, to which it appears closer than to Quantum Mechanics. Whichever theory, current or yet to be developed, proves to be the most reliable, Yee's description of the "Wave Structure Matter" theory is enjoyable, well presented and a highly credible alternative both to Quantum Mechanics and the String Theory to which it appear most closely allied but without the logical absurdities of the latter.
