"... [a] welcome gem. Read this book!"
Barry R. Masters, Optics & Photonics News
"Constructing Reality should be received as more than an exposition of quantum theory and the standard model of particle physics. It is a personal and passionate statement-a "what I believe" essay-by a distinguished physicist with a lifelong love of physics and a deep commitment to public service. In that context, the book succeeds and is a pleasure to read."
Kannan Jagannathan, Physics Today
"Marburger demonstrates a deep understanding of the topic and a polished writing style. The endnotes and the references are valuable for readers interested in higher-level readings or historical memois. Highly recommended."
J.F. Burkhart, Choice magazine
