'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 <i>The Quantum Labyrinth</i> '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 <i>The Physics of Superheroes</i> and <i>The Physics of Everyday Things</i> '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 <i>The Rough Guide to the Universe</i> 'Informative and friendly.' * <i>New York Times</i> * '[A] fine example of scientific passion.' * <i>Sunday Times</i>, Books of the Year *
