Publisher's Summary

The truth is: When you look at it from an external point of view, the term Quantum Physics can be quite intimidating.

It is very complex and sometimes even professional physicists have a hard time trying to find their way around quantum physics, as it can seem quite counter intuitive. But even if it is difficult and complex to understand, it is nowhere close to being incomprehensible. There are a few key concepts of Quantum Physics, around which the whole subject revolves. If you know and understand these concepts, then you’ll find that it is very easy to understand how quantum physics functions.

First of all, you need to know that everything within the universe is made up of waves and particles. Yes, both of them at the same time. This is called the dual nature of substances. This seems quite crazy, and hard to believe, but both of these conclusions have been derived from numerous scientific experiments.

The second thing that you must understand, and accept is that when it comes to quantum physics, it is almost impossible to predict the exact result of an experiment on a quantum system. There can only probability, no certainty, leading us to the conclusion that quantum physics is probabilistic.

And last, but not the least, you must understand that quantum physics is very small, more often than not. This means that the study of quantum mechanics is well observed when the subject particles are extremely small. This is due the fact that quantum effects that are involved in the processes get smaller as the objects increase in size. As a result, quantum behaviors are hard to find.

Buy: Quantum Physics for Beginners, a beginner’s guide to unravel the basic mysteries of quantum physics, and a comprehensive course to help people understand it better.

Quantum Physics is an integral part of our lives and it is extremely important for us to have at least the basic knowledge on the subject. Most of the people struggle with it as there are scarcely any books on the topic that is compatible with the needs and demands of people who are just starting out as physicists, and need a simple guide to understand the concepts.

The goal of the audiobook is simple: To help people have a better understanding of quantum physics in the most simplest of ways possible.

You will also learn:

  • Relation between waves and particles
  • Why Max Planck is called the father of Quantum Physics
  • Laws of quantum physics
  • Quantum field theory
  • Einstein’s theory of relativity
  • Importance of the Hydrogen atom
  • Basics on angular momentum on a quantum level

Gibberish

This is garbage. It wanders from physics to neuro-biology to discussions of consciousness. He starts off saying there is only one equation in the book; later, says he will discuss several equations which he will simplify (don't want too many of those confusing math symbols), but never gets around to discussing any equations. He claims that he has corrected a basic mistake made by EVERY 20th century physicist. He also warns the listener not to be misled by lectures from "experts" which includes Ph.D.s (are they current or just old windbags?), people who use big words (you know, the ones physicists use to talk to each other), or wear a white coat when lecturing.

The reader, Aaron Miller, knows nothing about math or physics. Such things as the number e to the iZ power is read as EIZ, and x squared is read as x two. He repeats parts of sentences randomly for no reason. Apparently there was no editing involved in either the recording (or the writing) of this book.

I took quantum physics in college long, long ago and just finished Leonard Susskind's "Theoretical Minimum Quantum Physics", so I thought this would be a fun book. Wrong. Very wrong. Don't waste your money.

For Beginners?

I read a lot of Quantum physics, astrophysics, science and technology material, but I found that this book was just a little too technical for me in many places.

Very dull and monotone reading.

The content was exactly what I was looking for, but the narrator sounded like a middle school student reading an essay from a stack of index cards. Narrator appeared almost bored with what they were reciting, and I couldn't even finish the first chapter...

A Total rubbish

Waste of time , topics are not explained in details. There are many more audio book that are far better than this trash

amateurish narrator reads a poorly written book

so bad. much better books on this topic - avoid this book. the content is poorly organized to teach and learn. the horrible narration drones on with no passion or sensitivity to the subject matter.
