LibraryThing Review

User Review  - wweisser - LibraryThing

I didn't find this book very clear, and it meanders around somewhat without seeming to have a point. I suppose it was meant as a survey of the subject, but it doesn't present its logic well and some of the conclusions get muddled as a result. Read full review

Review: Quantum Theory

User Review  - Mitch Allen - Goodreads

A methodical and very technical presentation of quantum theory from first principles. Intensive mathematically but there are purely qualitative sections too. Read full review
