about this book

This clearly explained layman's introduction to quantum physics is an accessible excursion into metaphysics and the meaning of reality.  Herbert exposes the quantum world and the scientific and philosophical controversy about its interpretation.

PRAISE OFR QUANTUM REALITY

"Nick Herbert's Quantum Reality goes into the details of the weird world of quantum physics like no other popular book on this fascinating and controversial subject.  Herbert has a dedicated teacher's gift for clearly exposing teh quanum world and the scientific and philosophical controversy about its interpretation."  --Heinz Pagels, author of The Cosmic Code

"Mr. Herbert has gone a heroic distance in making quantum reality comprehensible.  His book is filled with exciting moments when evan a neophyte gets the feeling he is 'almosting it,' as Stephen Daedalus puts it in Ulysses.  Quantum Reality deserves to be put on the shelf of quantum-theory popularizations along with such books as Gary Zukav's The Dancing Wu Li Masters and Heinz R. Pagels's The Cosmic Code."--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
