Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You – Marcus Chown

Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You is an attempt at an equation-less explanation of Quantum Mechanics. It surpasses this goal with ease. Not only are the concepts clearly explained, but they are also illustrated by examples which are concise and unique.

Perhaps its greatest achievement is that not only does it deal with Quantum Theory, but also with Classical Physics, and even touches upon when the two don’t mix. Implications are also thoroughly reasoned out.

A wonderful book that shows exactly what science should be like.

Hacker’s Black Book – Walter Voell

CoverA book that aims to provide a general overview of the methods Hackers use, and ways to block these attacks; however, it really provides a basic guide with elementary ‘common-sense’ security approaches and is therefore unsuitable for anyone but the beginner.
