Product Overview

When physics professor Chad Orzel went to the pound to adopt a dog, he never imagined Emmy. She wasn''t just a friendly mutt who needed a home. Soon she was trying to use the strange ideas of quantum mechanics for the really important things in her life: chasing critters, getting treats, and going for walks. She peppered Chad with questions: Could she use quantum tunneling to get through the neighbor''s fence and chase bunnies? What about quantum teleportation to catch squirrels before they climb out of reach? Where are all the universes in which Chad drops steak on the floor?

With great humor and clarity, Chad Orzel explains to Emmy, and to human readers, just what quantum mechanics is and how it works--and why, although you can''t use it to catch squirrels or eat steak, it''s still bizarre, amazing, and important to every dog and human.
