    In The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics, James Kakalios uses examples from comics and magazines to explain how breakthroughs in quantum mechanics led to such technologies as the World Wide Web, pocket-sized computers, mobile phones, and MRI machines.....

    Overall

    This is a very good book that explains how modern technology works in terms of quantum mechanics. The book is written at a level where a knowledgeable layman can understand it; and there is a link to referenced figures. The one thing that bothers me about the book is the narration. The narrator does not know how to pronounce the specialized science words. Every time he mispronounces Shrodinger (which is often, given the nature of the book), I cringe. He apparently has never heard of an excimer laser either. It's very frustrating, and is taking away from my enjoyment of the book.
