First off, this book is NOT an easy read! Being educated in science is not enough to understand the contents. This book will only make sense to people who actively question everything. If you studied quantum mechanics and found the explanation of Schroedinger's Cat acceptable, this book is not for you. If you believe the (magical) explanation that light is sometimes a particle and sometimes a wave, don't waste your time with this book. If you are willing to believe the clueless parroting of scientific dogma in colleges and magazines, and unwilling/unable to actively question it, then don't bother reading this. This book will actually show how ridiculous some of the currently accepted explanations are, and then offer more rational explanations.

Dr. Marmet has had many of the same questions I have had, questions to which most physicists have responded "Your question doesn't make sense". The questions don't make sense because the current explanation of quantum mechanics is partly or completely wrong. Note that the explanation of WHAT and WHY is wrong (unless you believe in magic) rather than the mathematics itself. He explains this fairly clearly in this book, which is not from a "mainstream" publisher. I especially liked how he shot down all the explanations of light as waves, particles, or combinations, and then offered a reasonable explanation for what is happening.

Only wish Dr. Marmet was still around. The guy could think for himself. Would love to talk to a real scientist in person. Real scientists are rare, even in research.

A printed copy of the book is hard to come by, but try looking here :o)
