Description - Quantum Physics For Poets by Leon M. Lederman

This is a lucid and informative book that makes the seemingly daunting subject of quantum physics accessible, appealing, and exciting. Quantum theory is the bedrock of contemporary physics - it informs our understanding of everything from matter in its smallest dimensions to the universe as a whole. But for many, quantum theory remains an impenetrable enigma. Drawing on the unrivalled expertise of a Nobel Laureate and theoretical physicist, "Quantum Physics for Poets" is a lucid and informative volume that makes this often daunting subject accessible, appealing, and exciting. Exploring every aspect of quantum physics - from the first experiments, through the strange behaviour of 'particles' that can be in many places at once, to the latest developments, including quantum string theory - this book renders even the most profound reaches of quantum theory understandable.
