    Werner Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle" challenged centuries of scientific understanding, placed him in direct opposition to Albert Einstein, and put Niels Bohr in the middle of one of the most heated debates in scientific history. Heisenberg's theorem stated that there were physical limits to what we could know about sub-atomic particles; this "uncertainty" would have shocking implications.

    Ryan says: "fascinating insight into the real drama of physics"
    "Being certain about UNcertainty"
    Overall

    This book deals with the history of quite esoteric and complex concepts which have transformed the nature of science - quantum mechanics, the nature of causality, the limits of predictability, the essence of reality and the uncertainty principle. It could be dry, boring and unintelligible instead this is human, intelligent and witty in its presentation of the history and development of these theories and ideas. It is so refreshing to hear such an illuminating and at the same time entertaining presentation of such otherwise difficult material for the non-physicist.
