The Quantum Rules is a different kind of physics book, as easy to read as a novel and directly relevant for everyday life issues that affect us all. It is not meant to dazzle you with unproven speculations that have no bearing on your life. Rather, The Quantum Rules will familiarize you with the important and established 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.Never took an interest in science before? No problem! you will still understand everything and find plenty to relate to. A scientist or a science junkie? You will find a different perspective on things you may already know. Best of all, you will discover how to have meaningful conversations about physics in a way that wont make eyes glaze over, and in which all can gladly participate.The Quantum Rules also does something you would never expect from a book on physics it makes you laugh, often. Its new and original take on established natural laws injects plenty of dry humor into this serious subject, by using life to explain physics and in turn using physics to understand life.

Here is a book to lead you through the fascinating intersections of life and physics with humor and intelligence.

Find out how the laws of physics define every aspect of our lives and society, from human nature and relationships to geopolitical issues like financial markets, globalization and immigration. The Quantum Rules is a different kind of physics book, as easy to read as a novel and directly relevant for everyday life issues that affect us all. It is not meant to dazzle you with unproven speculations that have no bearing on your life. Rather, The Quantum Rules will familiarize you with the important and established 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.

Never took an interest in science before? No problem! you will still understand everything and find plenty to relate to. A scientist or a science junkie? You will find a different perspective on things you may already know. Best of all, you will discover how to have meaningful conversations about physics in a way that won't make eyes glaze over, and in which all can gladly participate.

The Quantum Rules also does something you would never expect from a book on physics - it makes you laugh, often. Its new and original take on established natural laws injects plenty of dry humor into this serious subject, by using life to explain physics and in turn using physics to understand life.



Zusammenfassung
The entertaining New York Times bestseller that uses real life to explain physicsand uses physics to help you understand real life. The laws of physics define every aspect of our lives and society, from human nature and relationships to geopolitical issues like financial markets, globalization, and immigration. But how can such a complex subject be understood by anyone without a quadruple-digit IQ and a pocket protector full of doctorate degrees? The answer is here. The Quantum Rules is a different kind of physics book that will familiarize you with the important and established laws at the heart of physics by showing how the defining patterns of our lives, our behavior, and our society already follow similar rules. Whether you struggled through science classes or already have a grounding in physics, this book can help you relate to it in a whole new way, discover new perspectives on it, and learn how to have meaningful conversations about it in a way that won't make people's eyes glaze over.The Quantum Rules also does something no other book on physics can doit will makes you laugh, and often. With an original and humorous take on the established natural laws that govern our world, Professor of Physics Kunal K. Das brings this challenging subject down to earth.
