あらすじ・解説

In The Quantum Universe, Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw approach the world of quantum mechanics in the same way they did in Why Does E=mc2? and make fundamental scientific principles accessible - and fascinating - to everyone.The subatomic realm has a reputation for weirdness, spawning any number of profound misunderstandings, journeys into Eastern mysticism, and woolly pronouncements on the interconnectedness of all things. Cox and Forshaw's contention? There is no need for quantum mechanics to be viewed this way. There is a lot of mileage in the "weirdness" of the quantum world, and it often leads to confusion and, frankly, bad science. The Quantum Universe cuts through the Wu Li and asks what observations of the natural world made it necessary, how it was constructed, and why we are confident that, for all its apparent strangeness, it is a good theory.

The quantum mechanics of The Quantum Universe provide a concrete model of nature that is comparable in its essence to Newton's laws of motion, Maxwell's theory of electricity and magnetism, and Einstein's theory of relativity.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

do not buy this book

unless you have a higher degree in physics there is no point in buying this book. unlike Brian Cox's usual work, this is completely inaccessible to the lay reader. I can't understand how it got 5 stars.
I don't know why I cannot return it. I bought it less than 24 hours ago.

Hopeless as an audiobook

Overall, I had to give up on this.

This was pleasingly more in-depth than most books/audiobooks on the subject, and I enjoyed the first few chapters. However, when it got onto presenting the actual maths, in the form of equations and deriving the Heisenberg uncertainty prinicple and applying it, it was no longer possible to follow. The poor narrator had to read out numbers, constants and equations and visualising them and the described maths was just too difficult. Referring to the written accompanying material may help, or just reading the book instead!

If you don't like detailed mathematical discussions and descriptions then avoid this one. I think it goes a step too far for most scientifically literate, interested members of the public. I did some of this stuff at university but it was still too difficult to follow in this format.

Appropriately awesome

I think this book now has to be an all time favourite of mine. It required quite a lot of concentration and re-listening, but was a wonderful experience having the quantum universe revealed and explained in such a structured and empathetic way. Samuel West’s narration is excellent, my only wish would have been to have some of the maths in the accompanying pdf.
Thoroughly brilliant.

Great book to understand quantum mechanics

no mathematician but even listening in the car without reference to the PDF notes it was very digestible. Will revisit in the future with the notes.

Absolutely my speed

I'd been looking for an audiobook or podcast that essentially develops the concepts of Quantum Physics from start to where we are now, in the world of physics understanding, succinctly and precisely for a while. With Cox and Forshaw as the authors, it's very comforting to know that what is being said is accurate. I'm halfway through listening now, and I keep coming back for more.
As an amateur physics enthusiast, this is a brilliant way to link together and solidify a bunch of different things about quantum physics I vaguely knew, but didn't really know where they fit in.
The narration is actually very good as well. It takes something that might seem a little dry, and injects some enthusiasm and engagement. Kudos Samuel West!
Also, the only other review for this audiobook states the use of clock faces (as a way of visualising and also calculating probability waves) as being childish. In fact this is a very well established way of approaching this subject material. Feynman's way in fact. :-)

clock theory or Quantum theory?

why confuse an already difficult subject by talking about clocks for the majority of explanation regarding Quantum rules as clock rules.. childish and trying to be something it is not.
