Product description

Review

'Paul Davies' summary … is one of the clearest short expositions of quantum theory I have ever read.' New Scientist

'For those puzzled by the mystery of Schrödinger's 'dead and alive' cat, or intrigued by the idea of parallel universes, this is a must.' The Good Book Guide

'Paul Davies' summary - well worth the price of the book - is one of the clearest short expositions of quantum theory I have ever read. But the best is yet to come. In the interviews we hear physicists defending passionately some very bizarre views of the world … seeing these questions through the eyes of the people who are actually struggling to answer them offers an exciting firsthand glimpse into this fundamental and controversial field of enquiry.' New Scientist

'Non-specialists will find this an attractive and thought-provoking book.' Contemporary Physics --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

In this book, which has its origin in a series of radio broadcasts, Paul Davies interviews eight physicists involved in debating and testing quantum theory, with radically different views of its significance. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
