Waterstones Says

Every day of our lives we interact with quantum physics in innumerable ways and Chad Orzel is here to tell us how. From alarm clocks to grills to smoke detectors, Breakfast with Einstein reveals the hidden science behind our daily routine with wit and accessibility. 

A Sunday Times Book of the Year

From the author of the international bestseller How to Teach Quantum Physics to Your Dog

Your humble alarm clock, digital cameras, the smell of coffee, the glow of a grill, fibre broadband, smoke detectors... all hold secrets about quantum physics.

Beginning at sunrise, Chad Orzel reveals the extraordinary science that underpins the simplest activities we all do every day, from making toast to shopping online. It's all around us, the wonderful weirdness of quantum - you just have to know where to look.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[A] fine example of scientific passion.' - Sunday Times, Books of the Year 

`Informative and friendly.' - New York Times

'Physics is everywhere and in everything, and no one explains physics better than Chad Orzel. This book is a meal for your mind.' - John Scalzi, author of The Rough Guide to the Universe

'Orzel is the perfect guide to the world of atoms and photons, demonstrating that even our morning breakfast rituals are not possible without the wonders of modern physics.' - James Kakalios, author of The Physics of Superheroes and The Physics of Everyday Things

'As Chad Orzel wonderfully shows in Breakfast with Einstein, a full gamut of our commonplace daily activities - from boiling water [on the stove]...to taking and exchanging photos with our electronic cameras and phones - depends on quantum rules... A must-read for anyone fascinated with how the quantum revolution explains how things work.' - Paul Halpern, author of The Quantum Labyrinth
