Quantum Inf Process (2013) 12:2637–2639 DOI 10.1007/s11128-013-0586-9 BOOK REVIEW Gregg Jaeger Received: 30 April 2013 / Accepted: 6 May 2013 / Published online: 24 May 2013 © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013 As a book on the foundations of quantum theory, Franck Laloë’s Do we really under- stand quantum mechanics? (Cambridge University Press, 2012) is particularly valu- able in that it pays good attention to a range of newly observed physical effects as well as discussing the long-known thought experiments central to the subject . It is a book for physicists that considers a number of differing interpretations of the theory and possible modiﬁcations to its standard form that might offer added insight into quantum effects. Similarly, the book manages to consider not only various well known theorems, as is typically done, but also less well known theorems and details of the related physical processes. It treats a number of experimental situations to which the somewhat controversial notion of measurement  can be applied and in which it can be scrutinized. These include collapse-like processes, the so-called “weak mea- surements,” and continual measurements; an entire chapter of the book is devoted to experiments in which quantum state projections
