“Quantum Mechanics in Everyday Life” is a hidden gem amongst other science books. It’s difficult to find another book that simultaneously resonates with science students, professors, researchers and people new to quantum theory & its applications. It tells the story of the development of quantum by Planck, Bohr, Einstein and Heisenberg, using elegant mathematics built around clear, simple language. It’s amazing that some basic mathematical tools allow us to illuminate the behavior of microscopic particles. The science is described in a way that takes you on a journey through the world of atoms and molecules, preparing the reader to make deep connections to the unexpected ways quantum mechanics pops up in daily life. Wilton Virgo has a unique way of presenting quantum mechanics as the key to understanding the chemistry of global climate change. He explains how your smartphone knows its location because of quantum physics, and how astronomers use atomic quantum signals to determine the structure of galaxies. These are concepts that every STEM learner can connect with. Everyone who reads this book will discover something fun and new about the quantum world, and our connection to it.
