The Universe As Quantum Computer

Seth Lloyd briefly reviews Vlatko Vedral’s Decoding Reality: The Universe as Quantum Information in New Scientist: “an exuberant romp through physics, biology, philosophy, religion and even personal finance. By turns irreverent, erudite and funny, Decoding Reality is – by the standard of books that require their readers to know what a logarithm is – a ripping good read.” There’s more.

Update: The Economist also offers a brief review of Decoding Reality in A Quantum Calculation.
