The Quantum Theory of Monkey Superposition

This is the first two pages from FIMP's book "Understanding Quantum Mechanics".

Did you know that the typical "wave" travels in a clockwise direction at about 20 seats per second? Or that the quantum theory of monkey superposition can be used to elect a president? Amazing stuff!

This book got me in a little trouble at an open studio session. I had a bunch of little books out for the browsing public. One of my younger readers, maybe ten or so, studied this book and noted the "Hello Kitty" that I had used for Schrodinger's cat. She looked up and said, "That's not very nice." I was properly ashamed of myself.
