Entertaining and accessible, this booknarrates the conflict between two of the greatest intellectuals of the 20th century, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. AfterMax Planck discovered that electromagnetic radiation and the energy of light are transmitted in small packets called quanta in 1900, Bohr applied the idea to electrons, leadingto the development of quantum mechanics and to the explanation ofpreviously unexplainable experimental results. Einstein rejected Bohr's theory, and their conflict culminated at the 1927 Solway conference. This comprehensive study of years of discovery and debate is emotionally charged, exploring friendships and rivalries that survived two world wars."Ameno y asequible, este libro relata el conflicto entre dos de los grandes intelectuales del siglo XX, Albert Einstein y Niels Bohr.Despues del descubrimientode Max Planck en 1900que la radiacion electromagnetica y la energia de luz se transmiten en pequenos paquetes llamados cuantos, Bohr aplico la idea a los electrones, lo cual llevo al desarrollo de la mecanica cuantica y a la explicacion de resultados experimentales previamente inexplicables.

Review quote

"So well written that I now feel I've more or less got particle physics sussed. "Quantum" transcends genre it is historical, scientific, biographical, philosophical." "Guardian," on the English-language edition"
