Can two particles become inextricably linked, so that a change in one is instantly reflected in its counterpart, even if a universe separates them?  Albert Einstein's work suggested it was possible, but it was too bizarre, and too contrary to how we then understood space and time, for him to prove. No one could. Until now.

Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists who set out to complete Einstein's work. With accesible language and a highly entertaining tone, Amir Aczel shows us a world where the improbable-from unbreakable codes to teleportation-becomes possible.

    Not Bad, But Guilder’s book is better
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

  2. Chastity Heyl

    I was looking for information on the science.
    I thought the book contained information on the what, where, how, and why of quantum entanglement. But this book is more about the history of the friendships, acquaintances, and a few funny stories about the physicists personal lives. Page after page of reading about the mistresses, families, and pets of the people doing the work. I did like the last two chapters though. They were really good and that is why I gave the extra star to each of the scores.

    amir never disappoints
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

  4. Lilly Drop

    God *does* throw dice. In fact He’s good at it.
    Where does Entanglement rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

  5. Bryon B.

    I loved this book and loved the narrator
    If you could sum up Entanglement in three words, what would they be?

  6. Florencia Kelter

    The is a GREAT book if you have any interest
    I almost skipped over this book having listened to many others on the subject but the author did such an AMAZING job of presenting the information in a differnt and interesting perspective! Definately get this book if you are into or interested in the subject and the scientist that actually figure these things out. I just got his other book right now. This book was a lot of fun to listen to!!!!

    Entanglement
    I read quite a few physics books for fun. This book was fair to poor. A 10 minutes book in a 2 hour format. The equations are useless in audio format. Too much personal history of the scientists to “fill” the book.

  8. Tanja Redler

    this lost me
    I didn’t get much more out of this than what was in the publisher’s summary. I had hoped for a layman’s interpretation of the principles and implications of Entanglement but got a lot of detail I couldn’t understand. It seemed to be one equation after the next, lots of constants, variables and derivatives. It’s been years since I’ve had calculus or physics so this was way over my head. Perhaps the phenomenon is so strange it can’t be simplified. I found the narrator boring as well. If you’re not a mathematician or a physicist, I suggest you forget this one.
    Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time was much more understandable and interesting.

  9. Dionna Loskot

    Good for those enthusiastic about physics and interested in entanglement.
    This audio lecture is great for those interested in a detailed technical and interesting historical account for quantum entanglement.

  10. Georgia Waska

    I wish there was more real details
    A little too much of the history, and not enough of real physics , I wish it would be deeper at the end, as it is supposed to explain entanglement …

  11. Asuncion Stavely

    the history of entanglement
    kind of a who’s who of physics and their roles. teleportation coming soon… my opinion.

  12. Tamara Saleado

    Not good in audio
    There are too many mathematical formulas and descriptions of experimental designs for them to be easily followed in audio. I would MUCH rather read this as a book where I could see the formulas. Interesting stuff, though.

    Hard to follow
    What’s good about this book is that it gives a great history of quantum physics, with interesting biographies of key figures in the field. I can see that the history of how thought evolved around quantum physics is important to understand how it lead up to the idea of entanglement, but I expected more explanation of entanglement itself. I don’t have a strong background in math or physics, but I expected to grasp more of this book, since I do have a strong background in the biomedical sciences. I have enjoyed books on the subject “dumbed down” for lay people, like the Stephen Hawking books, which I was more or less able to follow–at least enough so to get a reasonable grasp of what he was talking about. In the case of this book, I was able to get some grasp of what the author of this book was talking about, but I would have liked a bit more explanation with less hard-core math and physics. I someone with an undergraduate degree in physics or better might find this book would be readily accessible, and probably very enjoyable, too.

  14. Vaughn Seligson

    Excellent from start to finish!
    An easily understood look at the history of modern physics! The narration is equally great, with Leyva’s smooth voice is as rich and dtetailed at Aczel’s text.

  15. Lucia Helmer

    Henry Leyva has a wonderful tempo. A detailed account of the path to our current understanding is given in an engaging story line. I had no trouble getting through this book and looked forward to my commute.

    Not Bad
    I have taught high school physics for 30 years but I must admit this book was too simple at times and too difficult at others.

    On the other hand I found I enjoyed it for the most part as I am very interested in the history of science and so I found the recounting of the events leading to the proof of entanglement fascinating.

    I did gain some new understanding of this phenomenon but I would have to say that the book did not live up to my hopes.

    Waste of time, watch a YouTube video instead
    The writer spends way too much time on the personal life of the physiatrist rather than what they actually discovered, like Shrudenger having an affair while married, if I cared about this I would watch TMZ.
    More than what you can learn from a 15 minute video on YouTube this book offers very little insight Quantum physics.

    Not the best narrator but I think the writer is to be blamed for spending 6 hours to say what can be said in a couple of minutes.

    Waste of time and money
