Review

Good

  • The book describes a variety of quantum physics concepts and physicists.

Bad

  • The huge illustrations are pretty dull; mostly clip art quality.

Ugly

  • Each segment is so short, it doesn't do a very good job of describing the theory and often raises more questions than is answers. I read the whole book, but I don't feel like I gained any new insight into the field.
