“I hope I can finally understand physics before I leave the earth.” – Bill Clinton 2011
Fields of Color by Rodney A. Brooks (Ph.D., physics, Harvard Univ.) explains Quantum Field Theory to a lay audience without equations. It shows how this overlooked and misunderstood theory resolves the weirdness of Quantum Mechanics and the paradoxes of Relativity. The third edition also explains the Higgs mechanism, explains dark matter, explains gravity waves, shows that QFT is compatible with Relativity, and offers a solution to the measurement (Schrodinger’s cat) problem.
