Something Deeply Hidden Description

From the Royal Society Winton Prize winner `Sean Carroll examines what it means to exist on this speck of dust in a possibly infinite universe. It's fascinating to see a real working physicist thinking these things through and trying to come to a conclusion.' - Professor Brian Cox on The Big Picture, a Mail on Sunday Book of the Year Quantum physics is not mystifying. The implications are mind-bending, and not yet fully understood, but this revolutionary theory is truly illuminating. It stands as the best explanation of the fundamental nature of our world. Spanning the history of quantum discoveries, from Einstein and Bohr to the present day, Something Deeply Hidden is the essential guide to the most intriguing subject in science. Acclaimed physicist and writer Sean Carroll debunks the myths, resurrects and reinstates the Many-Worlds interpretation, and presents a new path towards solving the apparent conflict between quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of general relativity. In doing so, he fills a gap in the science that has existed for almost a century. A magisterial tour, Something Deeply Hidden encompasses the cosmological and everyday implications of quantum reality and multiple universes. And - finally - it all makes sense.

Everything Is Waves (Or A Wave?)

I have been keen on understanding more about quantum physics for a long time now. I came across a talk by Sean Carroll that was blowing my mind and I wanted to know more.

I wouldn't say I'm simple-minded but I'm no physicist or mathematician, so it is taking me a while to get through because I want to make sure I understand the basics as well. I pretty much dossed through two years of GCSE science (I'm sorry Mr Whalley) and just used a revision book the week before my exams (managed to get a B and C) so my recollection is hazy.

But the nature of reality and our universe is something that has always been THE question I always return to. And this book is doing a fantastic job at explaining what quantum mechanics is trying to tell us (or trying to not tell us...)

I would have liked some even simpler descriptions but that's maybe just me. I do find myself going "hang on, what does quantized mean?" but with the help of google on the basics, I'm getting through it. Prior youtube videos explaining the double slit experiment and so on have definitely helped me to grasp things in the book. But Sean's determined approach to finding out the nature of reality is what I admire the most.

I do feel dumb, but it is easy enough to understand that I'm still motivated to read on!
