This was a rather interesting book, The Quantum Astrologer’s Handbook looks at the life of Jerome Cardano, a sixteenth century mathematician and physician, credited with inventing probability to help him win at cards. It’s an odd book, part look at Jerome’s life, part introduction to quantum physics. The book has an interesting style, as sections of it has the author explaining quantum theory to Cardano in his cell, but it certainly made everything seem much more human.
