"Medical scientists use the word `iatrogenic' to refer to disabilities that are the consequence of medical treatment. We believe that some such word might be coined to refer to philosophical difficulties for which philosophers themselves are responsible" Sir Peter Medawar Arguing that quantum theory as it stands is perhaps the most comprehensive, well-verified, and successful theory in the history of science, the author clears away the impression that it is an incomplete, philosophically flawed, and self-contradictory theory. In simple terms accessible to anyone with a little prior knowledge of science, Wallace examines the numerous "paradoxes" and "difficulties" claimed for quantum mechanics, and shows that they are due to excesses of interpretation that have been imposed on the theory.

FROM THE REVIEWS:

ZEITSCHRIFT FUR PHYSIKALISCHE CHEMIE
"Within the bulk of books introducing non-professionals to quantum physics that of Wallace certainly belongs to the most reasonable ones.”

AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND PHYSICIST
"The author is always very perceptive, and often presents things from a slightly nonstandard viewpoint, or with considerable clarity...The various sections of the book are well and pertinently referenced...I recommend this book to physicists, especially quantum mechanics lecturers and their students. You will enjoy it as I did.”
