delightful conversations

Unusual for a book about physics, Louisa’s book is crowded with people.

The Age of Entanglement by Louisa Gilder“Louisa Gilder’s The Age of Entanglement: is remarkable in two ways: first for her solid grasp of the quantum concepts and her ease of explanation, and second, for her decision to frame these concepts as conversations between the great men who struggled to formulate and understand this mathematical breakthrough into Nature’s storehouse of mysteries.

“Louisa does not entirely invent these conversations but assembles them from letters and unpublished papers. Her method gives an impressive immediacy to these ideas which mere exposition would lack, Nick Herbert says, “…eavesdropping on the private lives of the discoverers of the greatest of Nature’s secrets.”
