Book Summary of Quantum: A Guide for the Perplexed

In this lively look at quantum science, a physicist takes you on an entertaining and enlightening journey through the basics of subatomic physics.
Along the way he examines the paradox of quantum mechanics--beautifully mathematical in theory but confoundingly unpredictable in the real world. Marvel at the Dual Slit experiment as a tiny atom passes through 2 separate openings at the same time. Ponder the peculiar communication of quantum particles, which can remain in touch no matter how far apart. Join the genius jewel thief as he carries out a quantum measurement on a diamond without ever touching the object in question. With its clean, colorful layout and conversational tone, this text will hook you into the conundrum that is quantum mechanics.
"Takes readers on a fascinating journey. Al-Khalili uses] simple and clear language and he provides excellent graphics. This is mandatory reading for undergraduates with or without a science background."--"Library Journal "

Al-Khalili, Jim. Quantum: A Guide for the Perplexed (2003)I'm still perplexedI love quantum mechanics. I just don't understand it. It is to me like embracing yes and no at the same time, like believing and not believing in the same instant, like being and not being as one. Yes, Virginia there is...

Steve April 10, 2011 review from Goodreads

A challenging read, no two ways about it, that is a good thing. One thing that is very good, though, is that it is about an area of study -- quantum physics -- that, by name alone, scares the hell out of people. But if your are willing to do a few mental gymnastics, you realize that even though t...

Douglas July 18, 2012 review from Goodreads

I'm not sure there is any easy way to learn about quantum physics, but Al-Khalili does his best to take some incredibly difficult ideas and present them to a reader in a way that can be understood. Understood - up to a point. Without a detailed knowledge of advanced (really advanced) mathematics...

Neil August 06, 2011 review from Goodreads

I got about 3 or 4 chapters in and was still perplexed. I am afraid this went back to the library half finished. I certainly want to read another book on this topic (message me if you know a good one!) but sadly this one left me feeling BOTH patronised AND confused.

Ahmad March 20, 2012 review from Goodreads

Five stars.If you don't know anything about quantum physics, this is the book for you.Jim has a good style, he does not leave any point not explained.But still it is not enough to know everything about quantum.
