Product description


"This is the book I wish I could have written, but am very glad I've read. It's an accessible, persuasive and thorough appraisal of what the most important theory in all of science actually means." (Jim Al-Khalili)

"Excellent." (Andrew Crumey Spectator)

"Ball is an exceptionally talented writer who manages to combine accessibility and thoroughness in razor-sharp prose" (Philip Moriarty Physics World)

"Riveting ... Ball is an intelligent guide" (Natalie Wolchover Nature)

"A deeply fascinating book … Philip Ball is a rare writer in having such depth of knowledge of a difficult field, yet retaining the critical eye of an observer. Highly recommended." (Jon Butterworth, Professor of Physics at UCL and author of SMASHING PHYSICS)

Book Description

An exhilarating tour of the contemporary quantum landscape, this book addresses the question that most others fail to ask- what does quantum mechanics actually mean?
