Speakable and Unspeakable in Quantum Mechanics Reviews
Totally charming collection of papers by John Bell, who took Einstein (EPR) seriously and proposed "Bell's Inequalities" to challenge non-locality in quantum theory, the challenge subsequently confirmed by Aspect and others by experiment. A good touch of humor. Includes his refutation of von Neumann's proof of the mathematical impossibility of hidden variables (Wow!), the original EPR analysis papers, praise for de Brogli-Bohm, and much else. See especially "Bertlmann's Socks and the Nature of Reality". A tragedy that he died relatively young.

Don't get the Kindle versionThis is an excellent book. John S. Bell had one of the most subtle minds among 20th century physicists, and this book provides a v window into that mind.Unfortunately, the formulas he provides in his essays are unreadable in the Kindle version. Were it not for this, I would have given the book five stars instead of four. This is not the only book that Amazon has messed up in the same manner. They need to find a way to present technical in readable format on the Kindle. I recommend getting the paper version of this book, but not the Kindle version.By the way, Bell's analysis of the rocket ship thought experiment was 100% correct. The trick is to account for relativity of simultaneity. Both rocket motors fire at the same moment in the observer's reference frame, so the distance between the rockets remains constant in that frame, but the rocket motors do not fire at the same time in the string's reference frame.https://sites.google.com/site/amateur...
The book contains the collection of interesting papers by John Bell. Some papers highlight interesting points about the philosophy of quantum mechanics. However, as a person with limited knowledge of quantum mechanics, I found most papers to be too technical.
John Bell was a true genius. It is a shame he is not better known to the general public the way Einstein, Schrödinger, and Bohr are. This volume reprints Bell's papers, so clearly written. He was a real master.
i've read many of the papers in this volume, but not all. bell is sort of like the godfather of the current foundational inquiries in QM. this is kind of like the bible of my field.
Bell's important papers on quantum philosophy with minor edits by the author and a useful introduction on how best to read the collection.
Warning: learn non-relativistic quantum mechanics before reading this
