One of the best guides yet to the central conundrums of modern physics.John BanvilleQuantum theory is weird. As Niels Bohr said, if you werent shocked by quantum theory, you didnt really understand it. For most people, quantum theory is synonymous with mysterious, impenetrable science. And in fact for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves. In this tour de force of science history, Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly written account of this fundamental scientific revolution, focusing on the central conflict between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality and the soul of science. This revelatory book takes a close look at the golden age of physics, the brilliant young minds at its coreand how an idea ignited the greatest intellectual debate of the twentieth century. 16 pages of photographs
