## Book Launch: Steve Lamoreaux, Yale, "The Historical and Physical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: A Brief Tour with Comments on the History of the Atomic Theory"

Given that a search on Amazon.com for books on ‘quantum theory’ returns over 10,000 hits while searching for ‘quantum physics’ returns over 20,000, one might wonder if the world needs yet another book on the subject. These numbers correspond to one book a day for 30 years, ranging from advanced mathematical treatises to books without a single equation, from deep philosophical debates between authors with different understandings of the subject, to textbooks teaching the methodology and various applications.
