This is an author who has the ability to make otherwise intimidating subjects seem like child's play. It is for readers who occasionally stop and wonder about what one term or the other in the New York Times Science Section really means, or at least want to know a little more;---terms like quantum, Turing mashine, Shor's algorithm, quantum secrecy. Not many authors have both George Johnson's knowledge of science and his ability to communicate it in a delightful presentation; --and addressed to everyone. Another one who comes to mind is the late George Gamow. His whimsy books have offered both depth, and fun for generations of readers. They still get reprinted now fifty years, or so, after their first editions.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
