Okay so most of you may not think of Quantum Physics as a good beach read. But, an avid reader of the subject matter, this is one of the easier introductions you will find before diving full steam ahead into Brian Greene this fall. Even the title is beautiful. (Go HERE to read more about it).
The word "Physics" and "Quantum Physics" in particular has a bad rap. I am here to BEG all of you to at least give it a try. It was life changing for me in college, and continues to be one of my most fond subject matters. Why? Because it is life, it is religion, it is science, it is mystery and disbelief all at once. I could spend days going on about the "revelations" I have had while reading about Quantum Physics, instead I just will urge you all to buy a simple starter...one that came out in the 70's before we had discovered that wacky string theory stuff.
The theory of Relativity even, laid out years ago by Einstein, in its simplest form is still, well, magical.
