Sometimes unbridled curiosity can get you into some weird places, and this is one of them. I’m not sure at what point I thought that this was a good idea, but it turned out to be great! Drs. Lederman & Hill do a pretty good job of building the reader’s knowledge of physics from the ground up, without frustrating them too much. And this is coming from someone who took four years of French to get out of a single math class.
This book has enough scandal and intrigue to keep you coming back, and I actually found myself looking forward to the next time I could pick it up. That being said, I also heaved a sigh of relief when it was over. It’s an accomplishment to read, but also a good jumping off point for anyone interested in the wonderful wide world of quantum theory. I, for one, may not stop here.
