As Kenneth W. Ford shows us in The Quantum World, the laws governing the very small and the very swift defy common sense and stretch our minds to the limit. Drawing on a deep familiarity with the discoveries of the twentieth century, Ford gives an appealing account of quantum physics that will help the serious reader make sense of a science that, for all its successes, remains mysterious.

In order to make the book even more suitable for classroom use, the author, assisted by Diane Goldstein, has included a new section of “Quantum Questions” at the back of the book. A separate answer manual to these 300+ questions is available; contact the author for ordering information.
