The Quantum Guide to Life : How the Laws of Physics Explain Our Lives from Laziness to Love
by Kunal K. Das




Overview -
With humor and intelligence, this New York Times-bestselling guide takes you through the fascinating intersections of quantum physics and everyday life.

Physics might explain why the Earth orbits the Sun, but can it really explain our tendency to put off doing chores?

In The Quantum Guide to Life, physics professor and bestselling author Kunal K. Das illustrates how the laws of physics define every aspect of our lives and society, from personal relationships to geopolitics, financial markets, globalization, and immigration.

With engaging stories and illuminating examples, Das explains the important laws at the heart of physics, in a way never done before--by showing how the defining patterns of our lives, our behavior, and our society already follow similar rules.

Das makes complex concepts--from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle to Schr dinger's Cat--relatable and easy to understand, while offering provocative new perspectives on the established principles of physics. The Quantum Guide to Life provides illuminating and practical life lessons while bringing humor and humanity to what is too often considered a painfully dry subject.
