The authors-- one a philosopher, the other a physicist-- draw on their training and six years of co-teaching to dramatize the quantum's rocky path from scientific theory to public understanding while also exploring the quantum's manifestations in everything from art and sculpture to the prose of John Updike and David Foster Wallace.

Bad. Avoid like the plague. Co-written by Physics and Philosophy professors. Overly technical and extremely long winded.
