Product description

In this international bestseller, Orzel explains the key theories of quantum physics, taking his dog Emmy's anarchic behaviour as a starting point. Could she use quantum tunnelling to get through the neighbour's fence? How about diffracting round a tree to chase squirrels? From quarks and gluons to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, this is a uniquely entertaining way to unlock the secrets of the universe.

Review quote

"Quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation and virtual particles are all explained with the author's characteristic lighthearted touch. Readers who've shied away from popular treatments of physics in the past may find his cheerful discussion a real treat." Publishers Weekly "It's hard to imagine a better way for the mathematically and scientifically challenged to grasp basic quantum physics." Booklist "Elegantly approachable descriptions... with a refreshing emphasis on recent research. Highly satisfying." The Guardian "Sure to become a classic." physicsworld.com
