Spotlight Story: Turning Quarantine into Quantum Time with New QC Books

“The books listed below, which I have read in their entirety, were all a challenge bar one. They span the theoretical implications of quantum computing to programming, with smatterings of the history in the space, too. They are also recent offerings published in either 2018 or 2019) with the exception of Scott Aaronson’s book, as I thought such a disruptive industry as QC needs publications as up to date as possible.” — The Quantum Daily
