John R. Gribbin - In Search of Schrodinger's Cat

from the publisher:
It is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences. Without it, we'd have no nuclear power or nuclear bombs, no lasers, no TV, no computers, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic engineering--at all.
"A gripping account of the history of quantum mechanics and a clear description of its significance--and weirdness. Absolutely fascinating." -- Isaac Asimov

First I just want to say that I love your site, and I find it as an invaluable reference that helps me choose which book(s) to buy next. And I'm always looking to read more.

I thought I would suggest an excellent book on Quantum Physics, that is written for someone who wishes to read instead of study a book of equations. It's called Taking the Quantum Leap by Fred Alan Wolf. It's the best introduction to Quantum physics I've ever read, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the quantum universe.

To which I responded:
Thanks a bunch. Have you read
In Search of Schrodinger's Cat? I own it but haven't read it yet. If you have read it, can you compare the two a bit for me?

Yes, actually I have read it. Although it was a while back. It was an excellent book, however Taking the Quantum Leap covers more bases in a more down-to-earth manner. In other words, it's a more well rounded book about quantum physics. I'd definitely recommend reading Taking the Quantum Leap before In Search of Schrodinger's Cat.
