    Einstein's steadfast refusal to accept certain aspects of quantum theory was rooted in his insistence that physics has to be about reality. Accordingly, he once derided as spooky action at a distance the notion that two elementary particles far removed from each other could nonetheless influence each others propertiesa hypothetical phenomenon his fellow theorist Erwin Schrdinger termed quantum entanglement.

    Overall

    The title was by far the best part of the book! The author took over five hours to get to the main focus of the text. By that time I could barely stand to listen to any more. I did, however, attempt to listen to and digest the remaining 3 plus hours but I simply did not possess the fortitude. I tried to take in the book by listening in one hour increments with the hope that the next hour would be more palatable than the last. I was repeatedly wrong. Moreover, the reader made the text that much more hard to take. The audio presentation reminded me of a bad audio recording that can be found in one those old 1970’s educational films. My advice, don’t be sucked in by a cool-sounding title and pass on the Dance of the Photon!
