Quantum theory confronts us with bizarre paradoxes which contradict the logic of classical physics, such as one subatomic particle appearing to know what the others are doing. And yet the theory is impressively accurate and widely applied, explaining all of chemistry and most of physics. This amusing graphic guide does away with all the dullness and daunting\ndifficulty associated with attempting to understand quantum theory and takes you on a step-by-step tour into its heart via bite-size nuggets of information and appealing cartoons. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here, along with descriptions of the two questions raised against Bohr's \"Copenhagen Interpretation\" - the famous \"dead and alive cat\" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved...but therein lies the allure of Quantum Theory!
