Chad Orzel will be signing his new book Breakfast With Einstein: The Exotic Physics of Everyday Objects.
From the sun, alarm clocks, and the red glow of a toaster’s hot filaments (the glow that launched quantum mechanics) to the chemistry of food aroma, a typical day is rich with examples of quantum weirdness. Breakfast with Einstein reveals the hidden physics all around us, and after reading this book, your ordinary mornings will never seem quite as ordinary again.
Physics is everywhere and in every thing, and no one explains physics better than Chad Orzel. This book is a meal for your mind. —John Scalzi
Prof. Orzel draws us in with the everyday experience. And then we find we are on a journey of more than 100 years of physics. The reader is rewarded not only with a deeper understanding of everyday things, but also learns how physicists themselves look the world every day. —David Saltzberg, professor of physics and astronomy at UCLA
Chad Orzel is a physics professor at Union College, studying the quantum physics of ultra-cold atoms.
