Product Details


[A]n accessible primer on all things quantum…. rigorous and chatty.—Sunday Times

‘Quantum physics is strange.’ These are the first words of John Gribbin’s brilliant new book Six Impossible Things… [a] pocket-sized analysis of the six most important interpretations of quantum mechanics.

Engineering & Technology

Gribbin gives us a feast of precision and clarity, with a phenomenal amount of information for such a compact space. It’s a TARDIS of popular science books, and I loved it…. Gribbin manages to encapsulate what are sometimes very complex ideas in an approachable fashion. This could well be the best piece of writing this grand master of British popular science has ever produced, condensing as it does many years of pondering the nature of quantum physics into a compact form.

Popular Science (UK)

This slim hardcover is an elegant and accessible attempt to explain quantum physics to the nonspecialist…. Highly recommended for students of the sciences and fans of science fiction, as well as for anyone who is curious to understand the strange world of quantum physics.
