Das does a fabulous job of explaining basic and quantum physics concepts in ways that even a non-science major like me can easily understand. For that alone he gets three stars. Trying these concepts to human behavior was an exciting concept when I opened the book, but the longer I read, the more the reasoning felt like wishful thinking.I don't know. Maybe you need a PhD to fully grok the bonds between quantum physics and human behavior. My resonant frequencies must be out of synch. For me, the [...]
This book was really out of my comfort zone for reading material.I only give it 2 stars mainly because this isn't something I would go promoting. But I am not saying that this is a terrible book either. It's just not my style of reading material.Overall some chapters/Topics were interesting, but I found that some of it was way over my head.
As someone who loves Quantum Mechanics and Evolution and human behavior, this book is super fun to read. The only things I didn't like were generalizations made by the author in order to explain a concept, but I understand the reasoning behind it. It does put a lot of things into interesting perspective, though.
Interesting science but kind of cornyThe science in this book is really cool, bit I felt I was getting hit over the head with all the exclamation points. The examples felt a bit corny and some of the "jokes" were a bit dad-ish (sexist, dated). It reads like an old high school science teacher trying a little too hard to be cool. But I think science IS cool, so it wasn't a total loss.
Very interesting idea - explain some important ideas in Physics and then apply those concepts to "every day life". Engaging.
I really enjoyed this book. For me it provides a fresh and original connection between physics and many phenomena connected with our daily life like happiness, laziness or even a good formula for success. It really makes physics laws relevant within a broad context and for me a physics teacher it brings a lot of examples why physics is important and interesting to learn.
First Reads Giveaway Book.------------------------------------For those lost souls looking for the meaning of life, physics Professor Kundal Das uses the fundamental laws of the universe to explain a wealth of useful insights to be gained about our lives. Expecting complex derivations of quantum mechanics using Fourier Transformations of complicated multi-dimensional non-linear partial differential equations, I didn’t find that in this book. Instead, The Quantum Guide to Life: How the Laws of [...]
I ordered this book on a whim, having no idea what to expect, simply because the title caught my eye. What a pleasant surprise! It's chock-full of insight into the human condition and overflowing with funny nuggets of wisdom from the author's musings on life. And he somehow manages to explain a lot of complicated physics along the way.The author takes it upon himself to explain a lot of the important concepts in physics that are regularly passed over in popular physics books. The way he goes abo [...]
This is a bit of an odd duck of a book. I enjoyed it. Though sometimes the parallels that Das drew between natural phenomena and human behavior seemed overwrought to me. Either they were kind of obvious after a quick review of the natural law being discussed, or they were tortured out of a long and winding rationalization. Nevertheless, this book did what I wanted -- it took much of the difficulty out of grasping some pretty abstract concepts in classical and quantum physics. I selected this tit [...]
I really enjoyed this book. I won this book in a give away and am sure glad I did. As soon as I read the title it instantly sparked my Interest. This book has a way of really keeping you engaged and curious to learn more with all of the examples used throughout. I am no genius that's for sure and even i was able to read through it with ease. I think this book can speak to anyone regardless of their background, this truly is a great place to start when wanting to understand the world of physics. [...]
Very interesting so far.
