User Review  - Brian.McGovney - LibraryThing

Fantastic book. For the professional scientist, this is the best primer I know of. For the generalist, do yourself a favor and stop reading what TV gurus, soothsayers and other assorted charlatans say about quantum mechanics, and read this for the real poop. Read full review
