The international bestseller from the author of Breakfast with EinsteinEmmy is no ordinary dog.

When adopted from the shelter by physics professor Chad Orzel, she becomes immediately fascinated by his work.

Could she use quantum tunnelling to get through the neighbour’s fence?

How about diffracting round a tree to chase squirrels? Or using virtual particles to catch bunnies made of cheese?Taking Emmy’s anarchic behaviour as a starting point, Orzel explains the key theories of quantum physics.

From quarks and gluons to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, this is a uniquely entertaining way to unlock the secrets of the universe.
