Fundamental does for physics what Tim's first book, Elemental, does for chemistry: it demystifies the topic in his trademark humorous, engaging style, including the most recent developments in the field.
At the start of the 20th century, science appeared complete and the laws of nature were almost all discovered, but then we woke a sleeping giant - we discovered quantum mechanics.
In the quantum realm, objects can be in two places at once. It's a place where time travel is not only possible, but necessary. It's a place where cause and effect can happen in reverse and observing something changes its state. From parallel universes to antimatter, quantum mechanics has revealed that when you get right down to it, the laws of nature are insane. The scientist J. B. S. Haldane once said, 'Reality is not only stranger than we imagine...it's stranger than we can imagine.' Never is this more true than with quantum mechanics; our best, most recent attempt to make sense of the fundamental laws of nature.
Fundamental is a comprehensive beginner's guide to quantum mechanics, explaining not only the weirdness of the subject but the experiments that proved it to be true. Using a humorous and light-hearted approach, Fundamental tells the story of how the most brilliant minds in science grappled with seemingly impossible ideas and gave us everything from microchips to particle accelerators.
Fundamental gives clear explanations of all the quantum phenomena known to modern science, without requiring an understanding of complex mathematics; tells the eccentric stories of the scientists who made these shattering discoveries and what they used them for; and explains how quantum field theory (a topic not covered in detail by any other popular-science book) gave rise to particle physics and why the Higgs boson isn't the end of the story.

Create Business and Generate Profits in New Markets Through Innovation!
IBM reports $15 billion of annual new revenues from 22 emerging business opportunities.
In 2008, $4 billion in revenues from companywide innovation efforts allowed Whirlpool to maintain its top line, despite global recession and the steep drop in housing markets.
A DuPont business group leader, Ellen Kullman, backed an ambitious new business creation program and later became DuPont's CEO.
Each of these companies has learned how to create new businesses on a repeatable basis. In Grow from Within, two leading scholars from the Kellogg School of Management explain how your company can discover the right approach to corporate entrepreneurship and make it profitable.
Taking innovation to the next level, corporate entrepreneurship is the process of building new businesses within an established organization - new businesses that are distinct from the core company but that leverage some of its most powerful assets. Grow from Within examines:
- The fundamentals of designing a new business
- The four dominant models of corporate entrepreneurship
- Ways to align your innovation program with your strategy
- Leadership requirements for developing new businesses
Innovation is critical to business success and growth, but it's only the first step. Without strategically driven processes to turn insights into growing businesses, even the best ideas can fail. Creativity is often serendipitous; innovation management should not be.
Grow from Within provides the knowledge you need to conceive and design valuable new businesses that breathe life into ideas and dramatically improve your top and bottom lines.
