Summary

The Stone Age, the Iron Age, and the steam and electrical ages all saw the reach of humankind transformed by new technology. Now we are living in the Quantum Age, a revolution in everyday life led by our understanding of the very, very small.

Quantum physics account for 30 percent of American GDP and are at the heart of every electronic device; every smartphone and laser we use.

Acclaimed popular science author Brian Clegg brings his trademark clarity and enthusiasm to a book that will give the world around you a new sense of wonder.
