Dance of the Photons

Anton Zeilinger's new book Dance of the Photons is easily the best book I've read on quantum theory--unless you want a straight ahead textbook, then it has to be David Bohm's Quantum Theory.

Zeilinger has entangled particles and demo'd nonlocal effects between one on Earth and one aboard a satellite, between different sides of a German city, and on and on. If you like me are a fan of what Einstein feared, "spooky action at a distance," this book is for you.
