Product description

Review

If you are looking for an enjoyable read into all things quantum physics and how it is applied to everyday life, look no further.'Brian Clegg does a superb job of explaining complicated scientific concepts in easily understood language. The Quantum Age is his best book yet, because the concepts he explains are central to our everyday lives in the 21st century, even though most people think they are incomprehensible and abstruse. From how the Sun keeps shining to the quantum computer revolution there is plenty here to enthral and entertain, as well as to inform.'What sets this book apart is the way it focuses on the applications of quantum physics - the things that have changed our lives and brought us to what Clegg calls the quantum age". Truly fascinating.''I challenge anyone not to find it spellbinding.''Clegg's enthusiasm is catching, his science immaculate.'"
