Publisher's Summary

Is it possible for two objects to be in two places at once? Can cause and effect happen in reverse? Is time travel possible?

Believe it or not, it is possible. Welcome to the quantum world!

Unlike other arguments, however, the real difficulty is not in understanding, but in accepting something completely senseless, precisely in the right meaning of the term: not sensible, that is, contrary to the perception of our senses. You will notice that quantum mechanics is much "easier" than the theory of relativity.

In fact, you could get a child to help you digest certain concepts. The great difficulty does not lie in their complexity, but their absurdity in terms of logic acquired after many years of existence in a world that constantly follows certain rules. The more the brain is free of preconceptions and ingrained notions, the better it is.

You will learn:

  • What is interference
  • The double-slit experiment
  • Quantum wave function
  • Feynman's works
  • The relation between waves and particles
  • The Heisenberg uncertainty principle
  • How particles can be in multiple places at once
  • Quantum entanglement
  • The Schrödinger's cat thought experiment
  • The Copenhagen interpretation and need for an observer
  • And much more!

Quantum physics is at the basis of all the technological innovations of today, from atomic energy to computer microelectronics, from digital clocks to lasers, semiconductor systems, photoelectric cells, diagnostic and treatment equipment for many diseases. In short, today, we can live in a "modern" way thanks to quantum physics and its applications.

This comprehensive beginner’s guide to quantum mechanics explains the most important and stunning quantum experiments that show quantum physics is real.

Are you ready? Let’s dive deep into the fascinating science of quantum physics.

Happy listening!

Short and sweet!

The author just scratches the surfaces of the weirdness of quantum mechanics, with the logical inconsistency of one photon interfering with itself, quantum entanglement, and quantum tunneling.

The narrator is fairly good, even with his idiosyncratic pronunciations, such as “corpsicles” (rhymes with popsicles) for corpuscles. Say what? But I got used to it.

This audible assistance me to Improve my skill


One of the best audiobooks on the subject for a novice. I wholeheartedly recommend the audiobook, especially in light of all the absurd pseudoscientific crud being published these days.

Unacceptable

Dear Kindle/Audible …. You REALLY should pass on publishing audio versions of books that rely heavily on visuals like formulae and diagrams. The presentation by the narrator was top-notch, and up to the point where he started narrating mathematical formulae I was following just fine. Productions like this should come with a warning label, or at least a free downloadable appendix.

Inexplicably bad

This is a puzzling audiobook. The narration is choppy, disjointed, and full of references to figures. Nothing wrong with figures except the prose is uninterpretable unless you are staring at the figure, making it inappropriate to listen to while driving. I went back at times to re-listen thinking (incorrectly) that odd pages parts didnt download! Eventually gave up. The best part of this book is the reviews here, which (if one looks) are clearly fake and from the grammar and disconnected context are seemingly AI generated.

No pdfs to follow along with his examples.

Interesting but bo pdf file to follow his examples. Consequently, it made it difficult to understand.

It gave me clarity


For those who have an even casual interest in modern physics or science this is a truly remarkable audiobook.
