This book is an amazingly clear explanation of quantum mechanics which does not require any math background. Gary Zukav not only explains clearly and in understandable terms this important topic, but also extends the application to include important inferances that are useful in understanding things today. We are living in a world where the applications of this topic come up all the time. It is a great read.
Gary Zukav covers a subject that can often times seem dry and unintelligible to non-physicists, and takes the reader on an incredibly interesting and thought provoking journey. He succeeds not only in explaining the basics in an enjoyable and readable manner, but weaves in the more abstract concepts of physics with remarkable perspective and clarity. I was engaged throughout, and was left with the sense of having learned something that mattered, something that extended far beyond those pages. That is an amazing feat on the authors part, as I am neither a mathematician or physicist. This book will forever be on my list of "must read at least once in your life".
