The problem was, the analogies were just too imprecise and seemed to muddle things up.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in Quantum Mechanics, Physics, or simply in how things work.
As Gilmore's book is told in the style of Lewis Carrol's allegory, it is a touch more pleasant to read.....but not much.
My daughter had to read this for her AP Physics class. She liked it alright, but it really isn't main stream reading.Published 9 days ago by Amazon Customer
Very easy to read, even though there are a lot of topics covered. Great introductory book.Published 5 months ago by Andrew Vlahos
I like quantum physics and Lewis Carroll's classic work. I find the intersection presented here a novel concept, yet tortured in the delivery--stretch too far to be enjoyable. Read morePublished 5 months ago by A. P. Spencer
My 8 year old LOVES this book. It is one of several books I bought her to inspire her love of different sciences. We played with this book together and I also learned so much.Published 8 months ago by Schelmy
