    Why would a successful investigative journalist spend three years writing a book about quantum mechanics Well, the answer is that he knew he d found a story Like most people, I had uncritically accepted the standard platitudes If you think you understand quantum mechanics, that just shows you don t understand quantum mechanics Or, as Feynman says in a memorable passage from The Character of Physical Law, don t ask yourself how it can be like that If you do, you will go down the drain into a blin [...]

    140k words, 4h read Before reading, my knowledge of Hugh Everett was limited to basically the following sketch a young American male who post WWII suggested taking the Schrodinger wave equation literally, yielding the infamous Many Worlds Interpretation, and attacked over it, left academia for Wall Street where he became rich with an optimization algorithm, and in his absence, MWI very gradually gained adherents until it is now a respectable point of view albeit still counterintuitive , and died [...]

    Fantastic, but, then again I wrote it.

    I saw the special on NOVA about his son Mark Everett and the Band the EELs I used that DVD now in teaching basic physics Good book about the life and times of a inovative man and the sad effects on his family A VERY good history of the development of quantum mechanics Byrne gets in a few left hooks but its overall a very good book Densely packed big words read slowly and with NO beer near by.

    The descriptions of his interesting ideas on physics and game theory left me putting down this book at times in favor of other materials to gain detail The stories of the man himself make him seem like a prick An absent father, an unfaithful husband, and a self obsessed military contractor.Peter Byrne did a decent investigative job here, but there s only so much enjoyment to be had reading about this guy.

    La biografia di uno dei pi grandi geni della seconda met del 900 ignorato dal grande pubblico.Il libro molto buono, soprattutto perch riesce a tenere sotto controllo i tanti fili della narrazione scientifica, storica, psicologica, familiare ecc che si snodano attorno e dentro la vita di Hugh Everett III.Buono anche come introduzione per non addetti ai lavori della interpretazione a molti mondi della meccanica quantistica.
