Fields of Color explains Quantum Field Theory, in its “no particles, only fields” sense, to a lay audience, without equations. It also shows how this theory resolves the paradoxes of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. The third edition (5/15/2017) includes solutions for the measurement problem, gravity waves, dark matter, and the Ehrenfest paradox.

“A book that finally gets it right. Brooks presents the news about quantum field theory in a non-technical but accurate manner. His explanatory technique of using different colors to represent different fields is a stroke of pedagogical genius. Anybody who wants to understand quantum physics should read this book.” Art Hobson, 2006 Millikan Award winner.
