9781909365773: The Bluffer's Guide to the Quantum Universe (Bluffer's Guides)

While the physicists do have knowledge and understanding, such an appreciation may be obtained without formulae, equations, or fractions. The bluffer is going to have to feign, find, or affirm some sense of wonder.

Review:

This book can exist in two states bought and unbought. I heartily recommend the bought state. --David­ Tyler,­ BBC ­Radio ­and ­TV­ Comedy­ Producer and ­Relapsed Physicist.

A lively and delightful romp through one of humankind's greatest intellectual achievements. Jack's knack for weaving a great story out of a complex and deep topic really shines through. It rips the veil off the mystery of quantum physics. --Eericr Bittner, ­Professor of ­Chemical­ Physics, ­University ­of ­Houston.

Jack Klaff s book deserves to become the de­finitive reference for all aspiring mountebanks in modern physics. --Chris ­Isham­, Emeritus ­Professor­ of­ Theorital­ Physics, Imperial­ College London

About the Author:

Jack Klaff is a writer, performer and occasional academic. His first film was Star Wars. His first TV show featured Morecambe and Wise. His London stage debut, involving wild sex scenes, led to a season with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has won awards for his work in all media; now that s bluffing on an astronomical scale. He has held four visiting professorships at Princeton University and was for three years Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Starlab in Brussels. That s bluffing on an unfathomable scale. Jack has worked closely with Intelligence Squared, for whom he has interviewed a number of scientists, including aged Nobel-winning physicists, all of whom unbidden do brilliant, incomprehensible impressions of Niels Bohr. Among Jack s unusual performing gigs have been a talk at the European Parliament and his theatrical trilogy about male/female relationships performed in Saudi Arabia. His next book, Does Science Have all the Answers? could be even shorter than this one, containing just the word No .
