[Einstein's Dice and Schrödinger's Cat] is history of science writing at its best—effortless prose, juicy details and a fascinating narrative that casts familiar territory in a whole new light. The friendship and betrayal between Einstein and Schrödinger is a little known story, and Halpern brings it to life with a historian’s care, a physicist’s knowledge, and a writer’s charm.
