Summary
This book makes the field of quantum theory understandable to nonscientists, without oversimplifying and without bogging down in complicated math. It uses clear explanations, real-world examples, and diagrams instead of dense equations to help you understand
Summary
Demystifies the world of quantum science for the layperson, exploring scientific concepts?from particles of light, to probability, to states of matter, to what makes greenhouse gases bad?in considerable depth, but using examples from the everyday world. By the author of of Elements of Quantum Mechanics
