Editorial Reviews

Review

Jim Al-Khalili has done an admirable job of condensing the ideas of quantum physics from Max Planck to the possibilities of quantum computers into brisk, straightforward English - - The Times

The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information. - - Shiny New Books
