Very amazing textbook though I found myself being confused sometimes ... I think that one can take full advantage of prof. Datta by supplementing the reading of this textbook with the ECE 659 lectures (the ones that are 50 minutes long!) found on nanohub ... in those online lectures prof. Datta explains things in a much more detailed method than in his textbook, and I can safely say that he is just a excellent lecturer ... stressing particularly his ability to simplify things and convey messages.
Headed back to school to take nursing can be a bit scary when you have been out of school since Lincoln was President but this book helped to relieve some of my anxiety about starting anew and having to learn calculations of a lot of medications and methods of administration.
As a nursing student, I constantly need to review my math. Spending an hour or two each day reviewing this is really helpful. What I found really intresting about this book is that it will review step by step. But I feel like this book is targeted for nursing students. The reason why I state this is because it is constantly giving reminders. In the book it has stated "Make like a pattot and repeat them to the doctor." We all know as nursing students that this is a must. Honestly, amazing book to review as a student. Extremely helpful tips! The simplest things may be really simple, but we tend to forget the easy things. This book does the job of even reminding us the easy things that has math and the reminders that do not have math. Must buy!
Small longer and wordy then it required to be (but then I guess thats what we obtain in a book for dummies) but it does the job in an simple to understand fashion. As an experienced Nurse it was a nice reminder for skills I do not have to use often.
This book has been an extremely helpful tool for exam preparation. I believe the content is more geared towards people who generally understand the concepts of electrical theory. This book isn't a textbook on calculations. It does, however, show practical issues for electrical calculations.
Definitely helped me prepare for my math try in LPN school. The teachers only give you math prep for about a week and I suck at math. once you rember the formulas dosage calculations is really just multiplying and dividing decimals. This book broke it down for me
I am and have always been poor at math. This book helped me so much because it starts with primary math and then once you obtain the hang of that, you can choose the chapter(s) that best suit the medical math you need most. They break down the math issues they show and create it understandable. Definitely glad I got this book and recommend it to anyone who needs help.
I have been a nurse for over three decades but forgot how to do some of the primary math required to calculate medications. Unit dose medications has eliminated the need for these calculations, yet hiring hospitals still require passage of a calculation test. This book was very helpful in that it reviewed some primary math and had appropriate similar issues to solve. I was able to renew my calculation skills and passed the try at my fresh employer!!! Met all my expectations and beyond!!
I will admit that I am not a math genius but this book helps. You don't have to be a mathematician or be exceptionally versed in math to comprehend this. I practiced quite often to hold mind sharp and alert. I no longer work at a Vet's office, so reviewing this book helps me to create sure that I haven't lost my touch. I recommend this book for anyone looking to go into an animal similar field of study. This should be given at Vet schools or be on the shelves for reference.
I am a 4th yr apprentice who is getting ready for the JW test. I've used the book to review what I've learned. I have only used the book a bit. Its easy to use and the practice issues are simple to follow. They remind me of the homework issues from school. Amazing investment to practice for the test.
Really fun book that makes you think. The banter between Alice and Bob is very entertaining with true quantum physics worked in. The book does a amazing job of interweaving complex physics explanations into a fun plotline without letting the science become overwhelming. You'll walk away from each chapter having learned something new. Also, the ending is a total mind-bender!
Full of mathematical formulas without proper context and explanation. After browsing this book, I go back to the standard graduate-level textbook (any) for "Quantum Mechanics" topics. They are actually better to understand than this book. An extremely not good book for dummies.A proper title for this book may be "A Condensed Book of Quantum Mechanics for Advanced Students (Graduated Level and Higher with Science Background)".I do respect the author though, who seems to be very knowledgeable on the subject.I do not know how to dispose this book. Nobody would wish it.
This no beginner book. It’s very massive on the math and very light on beginner theory. And...if you are using it as a dummy primer for QP math, be careful. Some of the equations have math power errors that well exceed light limits...probably just typos...or perhaps a realm yet undiscovered.
An interesting book that includes a ton of amusing ogies while sticking to the topic of bring quantum mechanics to a more "relatable" level, with regards to the general public. It can also be useful to those already exposed to the subject, more in the mathematical sense, since it gives another perspective that'll create you wish to go back and review certain subjects in another light.
This book was amazing for the most part, and to the modern atheist there are probably no issues at all. I am currently getting ready to teach some high school children the basics about relativity and quantum theory and got this to obtain a more relatable version. It was simple to read and full of amazing information. I did search the authors' frequent references to evolution in a book that deals with the fact that all natural systems gain entropy over time to be a bit, well, biased I guess, and also found it funny that in the same book it points out just how far fetched the chances of this all just event are. Oh, there are a few more jabs at people of faith scattered throughout the book as well, but if you can look past all of those, it's a amazing read that gives a amazing explanation in understandable terms for the non-scientist who's curious about quantum physics.
This brief, gentle, witty, clever book does “exactly what it says on the can”, so if you are or ever were a hippy, go and buy it right now: you will be able to have fun an evening of life-affirming, mind-bending 'wow' for less than the cost of some dodgy ternatively, if you’re NOT a hippy, go and buy it anyway – it will respond questions that you never knew existed, and you will come away from it having laughed, marvelled, and opened your mind to things you always thought you could never understand. (Unless, of course, you are someone who has absolutely no curiosity about what reality is created of. If you are that incurious person, take a powerful coffee and test to think of a more wakeful you who does have some curiosity. Quite possibly that more curious ‘you’ does actually exist in some parallel universe. They ought to buy this book.)Written in the format of a long conversation between an accidentally-curious hippy and a curiously-y-even-if-rather-frumpy scientist, and with a glorious twist at the end, this is an instantly engaging book, whose a lot of ‘asides’ created me laugh out loud. At the same time (making my laughter seem much more worthy) it also provided a compelling introduction to some of the (head-spinningly astonishing) ideas of quantum physics. Not patronising, not intimidating, just sharing the excitement of ideas that fall almost out of reach, beyond our little horizon.OK. I admit it. I loved this book.
This is a delightful book that explores the nature of quantum reality from a classical mindset in an easy-to-understand way. The literary device is rather straightforward—two stereotypes meet up in a bar. Is it a possibility meeting, a cosmic synchronicity, or something else? Is it all of these, none of these, or both? You won’t know until you read the book, at which point these comments will be easier to either/or/both/neither case, one player in this verbal discourse is a geeky physicist; she is an authority on quantum theory history and mystery. The protagonist is a somewhat burned out poster-child for Fresh Age self-help and spirituality. They both like to eir encounter gives rise to a cheeky conversation. While it is less than a Socratic dialogue, it is entertaining, informative, and engages the reader in a thought-provoking manner. The authors have managed to check off all the “e” boxes that I like: entertainment, education, engagement, and ere is a blend of science and spirituality, a dance of the divine masculine and feminine, and a discussion of life and death. This latest matter relates to Schrodinger’s cat, a feline thought experiment to shake the foundations of your notion of reality. Two of my favorite topics—quantum entanglement and the nature of consciousness, are among a lot of of the subjects touched e quirky humor sprinkled into the characters’ encounter, and the inner thoughts of the protagonist add additional spice and delight to this exploration into quantum reality. In the multiverse of possible books to read, I give this two thumbs up. Full disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for a promise to review.
....every one is a poet ? ... and Quantum physics ? ... a not good description of the history of Physics, complete with ist, sophomoric Victoria's Secrets, snide joking. Badly written and badly presented, no guts, step asides, and small commitment....on the classic physics side, but then maybe....not....poetry to demonstrate ? what ? again some references to what but their - ignorance of such..... cheated me out of $20. ...sad.....
The absolute best book on quantum physics for non-scientists ever written. Simple to understand, no equations, and sprinkled with humor. It starts out with the physics discoveries of the 18th century and moves the reader gently into the mysteries of the quantum world. As a scientist myself I have never really accepted quantum physics as reality. This book created a believer of me!
Are you a nerd? Are you a hippie? Are you, by any chance, a hippie-nerd? Are you intrigued by the scientific and mathematical works of Einstein, Schrodinger, & Hawkings?Are you a sci-fi fan? Do you ever wonder if you’ve jumped into a various dimension—an alternate reality? Do you ever want you could? Maybe, you’re a fairly neutral human being who is just plain rhaps you are none of these things. Perhaps you are all of them—somewhere. Would you like to search out?Now that I’ve gotten your attention. . .Quantum Physics for Hippies, written by Ph.D.'s Dr. Lukas Neumeier and Dr. James Douglas, experts in the field of quantum physics, is a must-read even if you never really thought about quantum physics. The fact is, knowledge is growing and changing our world, whether we understand it or not. The realm of quantum physics has already provided us with unimaginable (back in the day) technology and will continue to do so. Quantum mechanics leading to the development of computers, for instance, is just one umeier and Douglas bring quantum physics to life in this fanciful, entertaining, enlightening, quirky and witty, exchange between a nerd, obsessed with quantum physics, and a hippie, obsessed with private enlightenment and growth. Science and philosophy combine in a provocative, mind-bending adventure into the physical and spiritual realms and their relationship to each other. Even consciousness and the role that it potentially plays in our reality are explored (albeit in a rather sci-fi twist).No college lecture on the topic could ever come close to this beautifully illustrated, entertaining exploration of the prepared to come away from this experience with a whole fresh perspective on the meaning of life and the universe as we know plete disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and I am one who would completely look forward to related books from these scientists, free or otherwise.
Unless you have a amazing grounding in higher math beyond integral calculus (where I stopped), ie. Hilbert space, matrix vector math, etc., look elsewhere. No doubt this book would be a amazing reference for the advanced student. This was not created clear in the description, and the Look Inside only goes to Chapter 1, which was comprehensible. Chapter 2 left me in the dirt at the side of the road! I'm not returning the book, because who knows, I may go back to college. After all, I;m only 75.
this book assumes that you have very powerful background in math and physic. no for a layperson. very vey boring don't buy it. on the top of that test to return the book like 5 times amazon said it was ok but did no process it right and still charged me. now I have a book I hate and will have to trash. seriously I hate that book.
I really thought I had been taken when I waded through the first few pages of "Quantum Physics for Hippies." To a card-carrying former hippie, they read like a touchy-feely, dumpster-fire, conspiracy-theory vanity book. However, Dr. Lukas Neumeier and Dr. James Douglas (with a huge boost from illustrator Jun Matsuura) quickly slapped me upside the head with their dry wit, genuine wisdom and the incredibly relatable method in which they presented the basics and beyond of quantum theory. As a bonus, they threw in a beautiful complete summary of the role of consciousness in existence. As a layperson who is doing research at MIT for a sci-fi novel in which quantum physics plays a role, I can vouch that you would be hard-pressed to search as an accurate, entertaining, gritty (yes, gritty) and sometimes profound introduction to the universe(s) in which we maybe live. The names Alice and Bob were a nice touch. The literary device the authors use---of two "strangers" who meet randomly---was hippiesque to the max. I'm not sure how the accurate content could have been handled better, unless more graphic , and rock 'n' roll were added to the drinking. I was completely surprised when the ending veered into sci-fi territory, but again, I congratulate the authors for pulling it off versus some stiff tournament in that genre. For sci-fi fans, this is a amazing reality check. Literally. Scientific fact, in this case, is stranger than fiction. For everyone else, "Quantum Physics for Hippies" is an entertaining, immersive method to really learn more, a lot more, about what is or what may not be around us. Well done, doctors et al.
As an old hippy, who also spent almost 40 years in the legal game, I was totally taken by "Quantum Physics for Hippies". Deals with a lot of the classic problems in a most charming way. For those non-scientists, into the philosophy of the issue, this book is a welcome break.
I have a issue with writing this review. I had already place this book on my wishlist when I was offered a copy to review, and I jumped on it. I was hoping that this book would support clarify some things I was confused on in college, and now I’m not sure if it served its purpose to do so or not. The issue I have has to do with one of the fundamental perceptions. Light acts as both a particle and a wave, and observation can change it which is amazing in the old and truest sense of the word, awe inspiring. Seeing the fingerprint of God type ever, when light acts as a wave, it does not act in a method that implies infinite possibilities. It acts as a wave, which is a pattern, it has limits, it has a definition. So, my confusion with their interpretations begins right away, just like it did in school. The book addresses this only by saying don’t worry if you can’t understand, no one can. Well, it’s fine with me to not understand the nature of the universe, I never expect to with my limited human mind, but I don’t understand the primary “how do you obtain infinite possibilities from a pattern”, and I can’t seem to allow that go. Also… Would killing one person solve the issue of an entire parallel universe, complete with duplicate scientists? My dudes, why would the scientists think it would? Wouldn’t it just create more duplicates, with dead and not dead and all?Now I can’t tell if the book failed to explain it to me, or I understand it just fine and I have a issue with Quantum Physics itself. Hopefully the field focuses more on “how does observation affect an outcome” rather than “could there really be parallel worlds”. I read this book, and I am sad to say that I’m not sure where the focus is in the field, or if this book simply took the strange items and used hyperbole to magnify at could all be simply my failure to understand something, I’m a hippie and I write fiction. Who am I to say?The book DID to a better job of explaining things than any professor I had, and it read better than one of the Dummies books. I like that the authors decided to explain everything with a story line, with foreshadowing and tension to move things along, keeping things more interesting than a textbook. I also have to give them props, they attempted a few things that are difficult to write. Combining spiritual and scientific theory without sounding like a quack is difficult to do. Also, there was some genre bending going on, carving out your own niche and such, that was fun to see.I can’t decide what I think about the format, on one hand the script type dialog helps hold the focus on the information, but on the other hand that is at the sake of immersion in the plot. Descriptions of body language and setting can be woven into the bits where you place “he said”, but would I have focused on the info if story immersion was more accessible? Would that have come at the sake of learning? Not , I had problems but I did have fun it. I did feel somewhat more informed and at times was able to dive into the whole “whoa” thing that hippies love to do. I do recommend it as a read if you have reason to want to understand Quantum Physics, or if you have the desire for reality to feel unreal in a thoroughly hippie so, the tip on spotting a truth seeker needs to be taught in schools, and it should be coded into social networks to automatically post in discussions that are deemed inflammatory, for the amazing of all.
This book is barely engaging. Looks like a shallow rip from the authors class lectures. In teaching these concepts, Feynman he is not. A bit dry, with weak attempts to be ncepts and terms are thrown at the reader without a thorough explanation or detail; it is as if the author thinks because he knows these tidbits so well that everyone must know them presumptively. Not a amazing method to teach.I can learn from it, because I do have a background in physics, but it presumes too much knowledge for its readers.Worse, it neglects filling in the info of the building block concepts as well as what they are leading to.
An interesting and well-written explanation to a "poet" of the quantum physics. I admit to having taken physic courses at Houston U. and Univ. of Southern California and Pharmaceutical Chemistry in which quantum mechanics played some part as well as detailed courses on traditional physics. I have also read "The God Particle" by Leon Lederman so there is some background there. To really start to understand quantum physics one must be able to do the math since the english language is not sufficient for explanation but from the lay person's standpoint this book is one of the best illustrations for those of us who are not all that familiar with calculus and probability formulae. Leon Lederman who is an experimental physicist of amazing fame comes with humor, knowledge, and insight into ways to illustrate very complex ideas to the reader. Also he is able to soothe one's anxiety over a lack of intuitive understanding of quantum physics by periodically mentioning that no one really completely understands the science....even the brightest of theoretical and experimental physicists. He combines historical figures and their accomplishments with the evolution of quantum theory and reinforces his points with how they arrive at their conclusions. This is a book that goes into just enough detail to enlighten but does not smother with the very massive explanations that might be in a textbook. The book educates the reader enough to grasp a lot of of the main points of quantum physics but certainly cannot discover all of the science in amazing depth. A amazing read, a thoughtful presentation but one needs to read more and learn some of the math and revise the strictures of intuitive thinking.
My only regret with this book is that is was not available when I was taking college physics. It should be a needed reading BEFORE jumping into a calculus based quantum physics course. The method the author builds on history to explain current theories provides tremendous insights that somehow never got created in college; connect-the-dots in modern try based curriculum's never seem to drive home the development process that got us to where we are now in our understanding of the quantum world. This is a must read for anyone in science.
I bought a used ver of the book and it was in very amazing condition just like the seller said it would be. I had looked at a physical copy of the book before purchasing it on Amazon so I knew what the contents looked like, and how much background I needed. I am a chemistry major in going into my senior year, so I beautiful much have all of the pre-requisites for this book. This book explains concepts (and some math) well enough for me to obtain a taste of them, but I often need to look up supplementary info online, which for me is no issue since I wanted to go in depth with some of the material anyway. Overall, this book is a amazing purchase if you have some background in math and physics, but a lot of people think that they can just jump into quantum mechanics without a lot of background and unfortunately that is not the case here. My tip would be to "look inside" the available pages of the book and read the assumptions that the author makes about your knowledge.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone studying Quantum Physics at school or is a amazing supplement to the a lot of textbooks on Quantum Physics.I've bought a lot of other amazing reference books on Quantum Physics, all of them that included extensive math,but I actually got through this entire book, and understood what was r that alone, I have to give this book five stars.While a lot of have expressed frustration with the implied "Dummies" category,I have to tell you, that for someone who has struggled with Quantum Physics through free college lecturesavailable on iTunes U or YouTube, this author did a amazing job covering a huge amount of the core e book is not just lectures e author explains the material as he presents it, something that is missing from most text books.I was so impressed with the book, that I bought both the paper copy and Kindle is book and Quantum Mechanics DeMystified are two of the best books I've found of this ither is easy, but for those who are struggling with this topic material,I would highly recommend both.Of the two books mentioned, this one is easier.But I would give both books five stars.A word of is material is challenging and even hard.If you intend to take on the math, then check out these two books.If you are looking for an perfect intro to the Quantum world,check out "Quantum A Tutorial for the Perplexed" by Jim Al-Khalili.
Lederman demonstrates his insight into the workings of quantum theory by finding ogies that can only be described as brilliant. The few poets I know might not learn enough to explain the topic to others - but they should obtain an appreciation for the comprehensiveness of quantum theory in its realm - and perhaps for the beauty that lies in perfection, the exceptional precision with which even experiments that were designed to invalidate or at least challenge quantum theory turned out instead to prove it correct. Poets, laymen, and physicists alike can expect Lederman to present them fresh ways to look at the nature of quantum theory and, in turn, at how quantum theory describes nature. "Quantum theory for poets" is educational, mind-expanding, and over wide stretches fun to read.
This is a very entertaining book. It is informative and I would imagine the examples given are mostly simple to comprehend for the uninitiated. I have read numerous books on physics and mathematics and this is by far one of the best from beginning to end.
This subject is highly non-intuitive. The authors set the historical contexts and clearly explain most of the mystery. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand quantum physics, which has been so spectacularly successful in explaining the physics at the atomic and subatomic scales. Most of this understanding is used to develop the technology that elevates our standard of living.
Only application I've ever rated. Doesn't go into super detail so its simple to understand, then you can do your own in depth research into the topics, its a amazing introduction into those topics. LOVE this app, [email protected]#$%! was a bit longer though but its free so i have no negatives to say about this.
Can you please add more subjects that are similar to Physics such as Einstein's relativity theory. In this Quantum app, you talked about Einstein's work, the Spooky action at a distance paradox and it's only a minor from his other works. I want to learn more about his works and his theory especially in relativity theory. Thank you
This application is simply incredible. The design and layout are thoughtfully well place together and the application functions very smoothly. The content itself is very concise and informative making for a fast rudimentary understanding of quantum mechanics easier than ever. An absolutely awesome tool to gain profound info quick and easily.
For a beginner, this is a very amazing introduction. Explains a lot of necessary concepts in layman's language and yet incites curiosity to pursue learning it further... A very amazing app, smooth navigation and relevant tests... Thank you very much My. Stepan Brychta and team...
It covers Quantum physics very well. I was able to use it as a supplement for my fundamental physics course in the university. The application definitely gave me a better understanding of quantum physics as a whole. I hope it would also contain a deeper and more detailed explanation of the topics, and I hope more apps like this would be developed for other branches of science!
This application is the MOST awesome application in the shop rn. It is totally focused on quantum mechanics, no confusing additional stuff. And at the same time it explains every info you require to understand quantum mechanics. The things that I blindly had to accept before this application because my school teacher "told so" were created crystal clear to me by this app. Amazing job would be an understatement for the app👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
Everything is explained in utter simplicity, ensuring comprehension for everyone. Truly informative and enriches ones mind with such fascinating theories through introducing us to a totally various world, the microworld. There is a downside however, which is the constant bugs and crashing of the app. Fix this please. Thanks for you efforts!
I've honestly learned so much from this application and im not even half method done. Even if you search some of the terminology hard to understand, its nice enough just having this as a resource, leading you in the right direction to do research and so on. I really suggest this for anyone with a love of learning. This application is informative and well articulated.👍
Really awesome This application is best application on quantum physics. Everything is explained in very simple words so everyone can understand. It is hard to search any application which is this much simplified and has correct information. Light theme helps reading even in low light. No crash,no annoying ads thats the best part. Continue to develope such best apps. Best of luck......👍👍👍👍
Amazing application changed my life and method if thinking things helped me alot both philosophically and scientifically amazing Author. Every pserson alive should know about quantum mechanics, it was really beautifully place together.And I love the fact that this application is rater for people 3year +.
I absolutely loved and enjoyed this app, it's quite rare to search apps like these tackling and discussing such subjects and i am forever grateful for this app. May i also add that there are times when you are retaking the try and it suddenly goes back to the tests 'tab'. Although this doesn't happen too often and it's tolerable.
As a curious student, this application really helped me obtain the info I wish to learn about and even to its details. I really love the quizzes you can obtain to check yourself up. Overall, really amazing for curious minds out there. I really suggest you can add a android game in it or something to hold me up and hold me entertained.
This application deserves 5 stars. But I have given 3 because it lacks info to a huge extent. I must say the explaination part is very good. It's quite easy to understand. I would like to see development in this app. What you should do: Add fresh chapeters. Maybe add a fresh detailed option where people can obtain a better overview of the things. And thanks for this app. It's really awesome😊😊 Hold up the amazing work. No issues in handling so far. So I guess all you need is the betterment of explanations. Update: Ok! So it's 5 stars now because you're application is very amazing in explaining the things. One can always find for better explanations but for that he needs to know about what to search. This application is really awesome. I'm finished with it but I would really love to have more of such apps.
Really amazing application for on who's fresh and unknown to Quantum mechanics. I wish to suggest that you should add a small more explanation for example bosons, first a definition of boson should be added than it's explanation. Because quantum is such a field to which most of the people are not known.
Really cool application that teaches you quantum physics quite easily with nice quizzes to create sure you got it. The design is modern and clean as well as being dark which makes it much easier to to read for longer periods of time without being tiring to the eye. The only thing that I would like to have added is maybe a calculator function that you can pop up during the quizzes which would create the quizzes be able to have more complicated numbers in the equations. 5/5 I hope you can create more apps like these I'd love it!
I have already understood more from this app, than I did in my undergraduate quantum physics course. Though, to be fair, I am not trying to say that this should replace the course, rather, it makes everything so much easier to understand after being exposed to the subject. Thanks!
After a crash course in the basics of physics, I have determined that while there is uncertainty in the universe, the knowledge of this does nothing to create it controllable. Therefore, free will is still an illusion even though the outcome of our actions would be various every time if we were able to replay our lives. BOOM! Nailed it. Where's my Nobel? Seriously though, cool app. I should be able to sufficiently annoy my mates with some intelligency now.
