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.

"The book's title, "Entanglement," refers to a phenomenon that Aczel admits is the hardest to understand in all of physics. The mastery of this bizarre concept depends upon our comprehension of space and time, down to the very smallest amounts of energy and mass--quantum mechanics. The complicated experiments and mathematics presented may go over the heads of listeners, but the biographical story of the entanglement of the greatest minds of the twentieth century (Bohr, Young, Einstein, Schršdinger, and Heisenberg) in the evolution of modern physical theory gives the audiobook historical appeal. Henry Leyva's pleasing voice, comfortable pace, and skill with scientific vocabulary make him a perfect choice to read heavy science. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
