Required reading for anyone concerned with casting the fate of humankind in a radically new light.--Edward S. Casey, author of The World at a Glance

A fascinating tour of the lives and afterlives of some of the most captivating concepts of quantum theory.--David Kaiser, author of How the Hippies Saved Physics --This text refers to the paperback edition.
