From the reviews:

“This work is a collection of 185 articles written by 90 researchers in physics, philosophy, and history. … Each article aims to include a clear definition of the term, a history of the terminology, and a small list of references. This is a useful compendium … for persons involved in interdisciplinary work. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections.” (E. Kincanon, Choice, Vol. 47 (6), February, 2010)

“In diesem voluminösen Band behandeln Experten der experimentellen, theoretischen und mathematischen Physik ... Die einzelnen Artikel sind im Allgemeinen sehr instruktiv geschrieben ... Besonders die Autoren aus der Physik haben sich große Mühe gegeben, ihre Themen zugleich präzise und verständlich zusammenzufassen. ... Ein schöner ausführlicher Artikel aus erster Hand widmet sich dem inzwischen fast dreißigjährigen Quanten-Hall-Effekt. ... Insgesamt darf man freilich das vorliegende Kompendium der Quantenphysik, gerade wegen seiner interdisziplinären Zusammensetzung, als eine sehr nützliche Bereicherung der quantentheoretischen Literatur empfehlen.“ (Helmut Rechenberg, in: Physik Journal, April/2010, Vol. 9, Issue 4, S. 56 f.)

“This is a wonderful book to dip into. … it begins with the Aharanov­–Bohm effect, runs through the Born Rule and the Copenhagen Interpretation … before ending with Zero-point Energy. … Kaiser on Feynman Diagrams nicely brings all those elements together, as does Lyre on Gauge Symmetry. … a book everyone interested in the history and philosophy of quantum physics should have on their desk or even at their bedside … . it should be on hand electronically via your library’s online access.” (Steven French, Metascience, June, 2011)
