    Great book explaining Quantum mechanics that even I can understane

    The unique use of a clock to explain the statistical nature of quantum mechanics at a my level (that of a layman) was excellent. It was sometimes humorous, sometimes matter-of-fact, but always held my attention. If you are seeking a understanding of our Quantum Universe including such things as Planck's law and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, this is the book for you. I hardily recommend this book.

    Well written but loses direction of the target audience

    The sample pulled me in immediately as it is written in an interesting manner with just the right amount of facts and clearly written outlines of future content. But while the beginning is written for the uninitiated, the last third is for Physics majors with advanced math knowledge.

    For a casual reader like myself who was looking for a fundamental understanding of quantum physics, the content is initially very clear, interesting and giving just the right amount of explanation without talking down... UNTiL the last third when very specific equations almost completely replaced general understanding. They for me did nothing to help the understanding of the complicated interaction of quantum physics as it relates to gravity and elections in the near or total collapse of stars.

    I finally began to skim the last 60 or more pages, ignoring the sudden verbosity and nearly constantly appearing equations in order to occassionally glean a piece of illuminating information from page to page to page.

    In all fairness, I learned quite a bit until the last third.
