**Description**:

Most of you will have heard the word quantum, and often wondered what it means, or what its significance is. Of course, there are lots of books available on this matter, complete with equations and rigorous derivations. If you wanted a simple tutorial, an introduction to quantum physics without all the hassles of mathematics, then read on.
