Item Description...
Mysterious talk of quarks, spin and cats in boxes has given quantum physics a reputation as the scientific theory that no one really understands. Yet, as highly respected science writer Alastair Rae explains in this fascinating introduction to the quantum world, the practical applications of quantum physics are all around us in everyday life. Were it not for quantum physics, computers would not function, kettles would not boil, and power stations would not heat our homes. With a minimum of mathematics and an abundance of common sense, Rae offers a step-by-step guide to the basics of one of the most important theories of all time.
Concluding with a tantalising insight into the philosophical problems, pitfalls and revolutionary potential of the new physics, this guide will provide the perfect introduction to quantum theory for readers of all backgrounds.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good place to start  Sep 24, 2008
Overall, I definitely got what I wanted out of this book. For those of you who want a mathy approach to the subject, this is probably not the book for you. I know very little about the subject, so I wanted a book that would enable me to get a big picture so I could tell if a certain aspect of quantum physics interests me. This book serves that function well.

No direct reflection on the author, but there are a number of significant numerical errors in the first chapter or so. They are almost certainly due to poor typesetting, I'm sure the author can tear up the math.
Not that good  Sep 17, 2008
Though the book is Ok, after reading Isaacs Asimov "Understanding Phisics" I expected more clarity from this book.
Quantum Physics a beginners guide  Jun 17, 2008
I really appreciate how the book is written in simplistic terms that most will be able to understand. It has truly explained the reasons for certain reactions in my world. It's easy to understand and remember.
A good introduction to quatum  Feb 28, 2008
I read a review in which the reviewer said he reads 5 books a year and that makes him an authority. That made me chuckle. I think Einstein himself said, he was no Einstein.

I've read about 3 dozen books on physics and math in the last 2 years and this one is another one I am happy to add to my list. Alastair Rae has the gift of not talking down to the reader. What I particularly like are the summaries and notes at the end of each chapter; it just seems to tie everything together. The book has mathematical boxes throughout, which can be skipped by the reader and still manage to get the over-all message. I would however recommend trying the math. If you are a little vague on math, try reading 'Basic Technical Mathematics with Calculus' by Allyn J. Washington and 'Precalculus Demystified' by Rhonda Huetenmueller.
I did and it gave me a good mathematical background. I would as well, recommend studying classical physics too.

All in all, Rae offers a good introduction to quatum for those who are new to the field, as well as a refresher for anyone with experience.
Beginner, But Not Very  Jan 7, 2008
I like how it breaks things down into subcategories, it's kind of like an overview of physics. If you want to know what quantum physics covers and not get into too much detail about the subject this is the book for you. In this sense it is a beginner's guide. It doesn't break things down into simpler ways of understanding but covers very basic ideas of quantum physics.
