    DescriptionBestselling author and physicist Stephen Hawking now guides the lay-reader through the fascinating world of quantum physics. Quantum physics - or quantum mechanics as it is also called - completely shattered Newtonian laws and challenged scientists to think differently about matter and subatomic particles. With Hawking's insightful commentary, readers are led through the most important papers on quantum physics, including the scholarship of Niels Bohr, Max Planck, Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, Erwin Schrodinger, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Richard Feynman.

    Stephen Hawking is the most highly celebrated and recognized scientist alive today. He first came to mainstream prominence with the publication of A Brief History of Time, and followed with a second triumph, The Universe in a Nutshell, and most recently, The Grand Design. The media has called Hawking "the most intelligent man in the world today" and "the scientific heir to Einstein, Newton, and Galileo." He lives in Cambridge, England.
    Review quote
    Times Higher Education Supplement (UK) "Experts will relish these paradigm-shifting concepts...physicists will find it a joy. For them the title is well chosen."
