International bestselling author

Without quantum physics, your breakfast – and so many other things we take for granted – wouldn't be possible. International bestselling author and physicist Chad Orzel shows us why.

Just beneath the surface of our ordinary lives, strange phenomena lurk. Exciting physics doesn’t only show up in the Big Bang, or a black hole, or in the guts of giant particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider – it’s all around us. Beginning at sunrise, Chad Orzel embarks upon a fascinating tour of the exotic science that underlies each moment of our day. Did you know your alarm clock holds secrets about quantum mechanics? And that the GPS on your phone has a built-in correction for the effects of relativity? In Breakfast with Einstein, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, everything is possible and the day’s end will find us dazzled.

[On How to Teach Quantum Physics to Your Dog] 'Elegantly approachable descriptions … with a refreshing emphasis on recent research. Highly satisfying.'
The Guardian

'By focusing on how quantum mechanisms guide the workings of his typical morning routine, Orzel cleverly brings those important principles close to home. A must-read for anyone fascinated with how the quantum revolution explains how things work.’
Paul Halpern, author of The Quantum Labyrinth
