So. I have a bone or two to pick with this book. Yes I gave it four stars (tbh I wanted to give it 3.5 stars but I'm choosing to round up) because it improved towards the end and, for all the rage I felt when reading chapters 3 & 4, this book still has value. But I swear to God there were times (particularly in the middle of the book) where I wanted to scream at Maudlin. I kept returning to the (glowing) reviews on the Goodreads page, praising how accessible this book is and I kept muttering ...more

For those, like me, who have been troubled over the decades by violations of Bell inequality, then this is a must read. This is true even if the competence you bring to the book is limited.

Requisites:
For a full critical understanding--which I did not obtain--you should understand calculus to the point of partial derivatives and should also know probability notation. Without this, the gist of arguments can be understood by anyone who does not shy away from symbolic presentations and logic (assumi

Maudlin is quite detailed and aware of the importance in a process of accumulating prior information from the previous chapters which makes the apprehension of both quantum mechanics and of special relativity a fairly easy task. The mathematical tools are simple linear equations and Lorentz transformations. Perhaps the greatest part of the book is that it delves into questions that usually physicists tend to either brush off or be completely ignorant about, that is to say the nature and compatib ...more

I really liked this book. For almost a month this book has been my daily reading on my way to and back from work. The book offers a very good introduction to the Bell inequality and the incompatibility of quantum mechanics and relativity. I think the author succeeds in his aim: To give an accessible introduction that avoids the trap of falling into too many technical details that obscure the big picture. This does not mean that the book is not demanding, it definitely is for those with no prior ...more

Shelves: philosophy, physics
maudlin can be a little demanding, but this is a great overview of the problems in marrying quantum mechanics with relativity theory.
