A fascinating and colourful biography of the father of quantum mechanics, by the bestselling author of the science classic, In Search of Schrodinger's Cat.
John Gribbin gained a PhD from the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge (then under the leadership of Fred Hoyle) before working as a science journalist for Nature and later New Scientist. He is the author of a number of bestselling popular science books, including In Search of Schr dinger's Cat, In Search of the Multiverse, Science- A History and The Universe- A Biography. He is a Visiting Fellow at the University of Sussex and in 2000 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
"A fascinating tale of scientific endeavour . . . Gribbin expertly elucidates the relationships and discoveries that shaped Schrodinger's thoughts, including his lengthy correspondence with Albert Einstein, which led to the famous cat-in-the-box thought experiment . . . Anyone wishing to dip their feet in the muddy waters of quantum physics will enjoy this scientific soap opera. But it should be required reading for those eager to understand how the process of scientific discovery really works" * New Scientist * "Gribbin is an established master in the game of demystifying quantum mechanics" * Jim Al-Khalili * "The master of popular science writing" * Sunday Times * "Gribbin lucidly describes Schroedinger's Silver Surfer view of the universe, as well as revealing some of the more colourful details of Schroedinger's life... at its heart, this book is a fight for the soul of the quantum world" * Daily Telegraph *
