Summary

Without quantum physics, your breakfast - and so many other things we take for granted - wouldn't be possible. International best-selling author and physicist Chad Orzel shows us why.  

Just beneath the surface of our ordinary lives, strange phenomena lurk. Exciting physics doesn’t only show up in the big bang or a black hole or in the guts of giant particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider - it’s all around us.  

Beginning at sunrise, Chad Orzel embarks upon a fascinating tour of the exotic science that underlies each moment of our day. Did you know your alarm clock held secrets about quantum mechanics? And that the GPS on your phone has a built-in correction for the effects of relativity?  

In Breakfast with Einstein, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, everything is possible and the day’s end will find us dazzled.

Disappointed

The reader is very easy to listen to and his voice is somehow captivating. However, the text is extremely detailed and complicated theoretical physics with only occasional mentions of how the theories relate to every day life. anybody without a physics degree is likely to struggle to understand what is being described.
