Publisher's Summary

A book of science like no other about a scientist like no other.
This is a landmark in science writing. It resurrects from the vaults of neglect the polymath Jerome Cardano, a Milanese of the 16th century. Who is he? A gambler and blasphemer, inventor and chancer, plagued by demons and anxieties, astrologer to kings, emperors and popes. This stubborn and unworldly man was the son of a lawyer and a brothel keeper but also a gifted physician and the unacknowledged discoverer of the mathematical foundations of quantum physics.
That is the argument of this charming and intoxicatingly clever book, which is truly original in its style and, in the manner of the modernists, embodies in its very form its theories about the world. The Quantum Astrologer's Handbook is a science book with the panache of a novel, for fans of Carlo Rovelli or Umberto Eco. It is a work of and about genius.

Great way to make it make sense

Narrator was awesome. Finally felt I was getting a handle on the big questions. And really enjoyed the history woven into the science. Great listen.

Didn't enjoy reader's breathy reading style

Excellent story/conceit. Wonderful introduction to Quantum mechanics as well as the historical progression of science. Reader's style was way too breathy and detracted from my enjoyment.
