"An excellent introduction for readers who have little previous background information about the exciting story of the developments of quantum physics." -- Naomi Pasachoff for Metascience
"The Quantum Ten illuminates a neglected chapter in the history of physics, and Jones tells the story with enthusiasm and flair. Above all, she gives the reader a real feeling for the personalities behind the science, a look at the minds of 10 passionate thinkers who changed our world forever." -- The Globe and Mail
"Out of this human and historical stew came ideas that have thrown physics into a tizzy ever since, resulting in a field that even its most famous practitioners admit they don't understand, and in further explanations like string theory that nobody knows how to prove. Yet there is the tantalizing potential for eventual understanding that goes beyond physics to life, the universe and everything." -- North Coast Journal
"The eminently readable result brings to life characters like the caustic Wolfgang Pauli and the womanising Schrödinger." -- New Scientist
