Description - The Quantum Universe by Brian Cox
The world we live in is stranger than we can possibly imagine. The closest we've got to understanding it - so far - is with quantum physics. But what is quantum physics? And how, exactly, can it help us make sense of the universe? In The Quantum Universe, Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw give us the real science behind the bizarre, wonderful, mind-boggling behaviour of the atoms and energy that make up the cosmos, and reveal just how everything that can happen, does happen. 'An engaging, ambitious and creative tour of our quantum universe.' Guardian 'Given that Einstein himself never quite got his head around the quantum universe, the task that the two professors have taken on - to demystify quantum physics - is not to be taken lightly . . . they do a great job.' The Times 'As breezily a written accessible account of the theory of quantum mechanics as you could wish for.' Observer 'The authors' love for their subject shines through the book.' Economist
