This book answers 3 big questions: what aspects and behaviors of atomic-scale objects, and force fields related to them, cannot be described using classical physics? How are we to understand these behaviors using quantum theory? And to what good uses can this knowledge be applied? The author has explained them in a “fiction” style suitable for a general audience with no background in physics. The book starts with the origin of quantum physics and ends with the future directions and challenges in quantum science. I highly recommend Quantum Physics for its content and price to everyone.
