              Jim Baggott explores how our understanding of the nature of matter, and its fundamental property of mass, has developed, from the ancient Greek view of indivisible atoms to quantum mechanics, dark matter, the Higgs field, and beyond. He shows how the stuff of the universe is prov...ing more elusive and uncertain than we ever imagined.

              Quantum mechanics is one of the most successful of scientific theories, but what does it actually mean? From Schrodinger's Cat to Many Worlds, Jim Baggott guides us through the many attempts to determine its meaning. Richard Feynman once declared that 'nobody understands quantum ...mechanics'. This book will tell you why.

              Utterly beautiful. Profoundly disconcerting. Quantum theory is quite simply the most successful account of the physical universe ever devised. The pursuit of its implications has been the driving motivation of physicists for 100 years. Jim Baggott traces the story, the personalit...ies and the rivalries, through 40 turning-point moments.

              The book combines popular and textbook presentation. It aims not to teach readers how to do quantum mechanics but rather helps them understand how to think about quantum mechanics. The real source of confusion in quantum mechanics does not originate in the mathematics, but in our... understanding of what a scientific theory is supposed to represent.
