Review:

"[Polkinghorne] offers much insight in this thoroughly delightful little book into the nature of the conceptual problems at the heart of the twentieth century's most successful theory. . . . I wholeheartedly recommend The Quantum World. . . ."--Tony Hey, New Scientist

"A delightful book, written at a popular level but without any misleading over-simplification."--Roger Penrose, The Times Higher Education Supplement

"The author's life as well as his oeuvre, especially this lovely little book, bear testimony to the fact that . . . science and nature can coexist in harmonious complementarity."--Abraham Pais, Nature
