Ever wondered why you can't seem to keep your desk tidy? It's quantum physics! No, really! Learn how quantum physics affects your daily life and learn practical ways to put that knowledge to good use! Ever feel guilty that you always seem to seek the easiest and shortest way to accomplish something? And why is it so satisfying to drive along a road hitting every green light as if by magic? The Quantum Rules applies the laws of physics to explain everything from relationships and human nature to the effects of globalization. It achieves the impossible task of making quantum physics deeply relevant to all readers--even those with no interest in science. With a lively and engaging tone, author Kunal K. Das ponders the underlying truths and patterns in our shared and common life experiences, using insights derived from the fundamental laws of physics. In The Quantum Rules, readers will find a fresh new perspective on the human experience, and in the process effortlessly absorb some of the most important laws of physics without facing any math or dense logic. What you learn will surprise, entertain, and perhaps even shock you with its simple logic--once you've learned about the Laziness Clause, your life will never be the same again!
Kunal K. Das is a professor of physics and an active researcher in the fields of nanotechnology and ultracold atoms with ongoing funding from the National Science Foundation. He has authored twenty-five refereed journal publications and has taught physics at the university level for sixteen years at several institutions including SUNY, Penn State, Fordham, and Harvard. Unlike most physicists, he has a lifelong interest in the humanities and pop culture and a passion for classic literature, giving him a unique view of physical laws from the perspective of broader human experiences.
