Sneaking a Look at God's Cards: Unraveling the Mysteries of Quantum Mechanics
Book Summary of Sneaking a Look at God's Cards: Unraveling the Mysteries of Quantum Mechanics
Since its inception, physicists and philosophers have struggled to work out the meaning of quantum mechanics. Some, like Niels Bohr, have responded to quantum mechanics' mysteries by replacing notions of position and velocity with probabilities. Others, like Einstein and Penrose, have disagreed and think that the entire puzzle reflects not a fundamental principle of nature but our own ignorance of basic scientific processes.
Sneaking a Look at God's Cards offers the general reader a deep and real understanding of the problems inherent to the interpretation of quantum mechanics, from its inception to the present. The book presents a balanced overview of current debates and explores how the theory of quantum mechanics plays itself out in the real world. Written from the perspective of a leading European physicist, the book looks extensively at ideas from both sides of the Atlantic and also considers what philosophers have contributed to the scientific discussion of this field.
Sneaking a Look at God's Cards sets out what we know about the endlessly fascinating quantum world, how we came to this understanding, where we disagree, and where we are heading in our quest to comprehend the seemingly incomprehensible.

Horrible translation from Italian (done by the author). I couldn't get through more than a few chapters before realizing that this guy was friggin horrible at explaining things to laypersons. It's riddled with math references that I haven't used since college, assuming you're up to speed already....
