Anmeldelser

«A brilliant book for historians of science, or for physicists from undergraduate level to professors who want to find out more about how quantum theory got to where it is.»

Brian Clegg, Popular Science

«The collaboration of an outstanding historian of physics and a superb science writer gives us a masterful, detailed reconstruction of the slow unravelling of one of the greatest intellectual disputes in science, and brings us at the doorstep of today's debates.»

Carlo Rovelli

«That the book is so good should come as no surprise because Baggott is possibly the best writer of books on physics for a broad audience and the late John Heilbron was one of our most distinguished historians of physics and someone who spent considerable time studying especially, but by no means only, the work of Bohr.»

Don Howard, Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame

«I can think of no better grounding for any curious reader seeking the truth behind science's place in society.»

John Mulhall, Irish Tech News

«I have never read a better account: balanced, authoritative and spiced with elegant wit.»

Philip Ball, Physics World

«This impressive volume makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of one of the most important aspects of twentieth century science. I shall certainly recommend it to my colleagues.»

John Gribbin, Author of In Search of Schrodinger's Cat

«[A] hugely detailed narrative of the 20th-century battle for the meaning of physics ... [Quantum Drama is] is humane and interesting, and also blessed with a fantastically dry sense of humour. *****»

Steven Poole, The Telegraph

«Enlightening.»

Publishers Weekly

«Compelling ... Quantum Drama offers a rich history that highlights the very human mix of ego, idealism, prejudice, and courage that accompanies the genius of science.»

Robyn Arianrhod, Australian Book Review

«Moving from the dawn of quantum theory to its most recent iterations, Quantum Drama is the story of how quantum theory reached its present state - with visions of where it may go in the future.»

Eileen Gonzalez, Foreword Reviews
