Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You by Marcus Chown
Light and fun. Marcus has a way of making such an obtuse subject more understandable with excellent analogies or detours into the land of "think of it like this . . ."
Easy to bite off and chew chapters on various implications and aspects of current scientific thinking.
We get some great throw away amaze your friends type facts but also a deeper understanding of just how strange the universe is.
This book makes the subject much more approachable and nearly understandable and is a great introduction to the topic.
I have added his other books to my ever growing "read this" list.
Three and a half out of five stars.
