It felt demeaning at some sentences! In a subject such as history, for example, which is a huge subject, in search of schrodingers cat is a lot of breadth, but not much depth.

To finish, if you read this book, you should be able to follow this marvellous joke. And in a world full of its own delights, mysteries and surprises, he searches for Schrodinger's Cat - a search for quantum reality - as he brings every reader to a clear understanding of the most important area of scientific study today - quantum physics. However, by the end, the concepts are clear and complete.
In Search of Schrödinger's Cat: Quantum Physics and Reality by John Gribbin
Rather than presenting in a "pedagogically dull method". I enjoyed it for the survey of physics giants in the early 20th century from Einstein to Heisenburg. What makes it different from most other books I read on the subject is the way in which Gribbin tries to explain one phenomenon that, quite often, can be felt as unexplainable.

The entire book has been an amazing ride through the mindbogglingly unbelievable world of the sub-atomic particles and i cant say it better than Neils Bohr - "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not fully understood it". Without it, we'd have no computers or internet, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic engineering. Einstein's Relativity, Symmetry, and Space-Time. Gribbin's book has been cited as an example of how to revive an interest in the study of mathematics.

Quantum theory is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all. In search of Schrödinger's cat is a book about how scientists struggled to describe what the nature of reality is really like. There are few bigger.
