Quantum Inf Process (2012) 11:311–312 DOI 10.1007/s11128-011-0227-0 BOOK REVIEW Gregg Jaeger: Entanglement, Information, and the Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics (The Frontiers Collection) Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2009 Giacomo Mauro D’Ariano Published online: 2 February 2011 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011 In the Information era Quantum Mechanics has found a new life. This is not just a response to the promises of the quantum-information technology, but because day after day it is becoming evident that Quantum Mechanics is not really about “phys- ics”, but more about “information”. The notion of Entanglement is the keystone for understanding this new conceptual revolution. In his book Gregg Jaeger is guiding the reader to understanding this paradigm metamorphosis inside the most successful and debated theory of all times. Entanglement is the main subject of the ﬁrst chapter, being the most distinctive feature of quantum mechanics, and, at the same time, the crucial resource in applica- tions of quantum information. Besides an originally presented short review on non- locality in relation to hidden variable models, local operations and no-signaling, the chapter also gives an interesting presentation of fundamental concepts such as quan- tum interference and uncertainty, in a manner emphasizing their foundational aspects and relation
