The book was initially published by Blackwell Publishing in   ‘The theory produces a good deal but hardly brings us closer to the secret of the Old One,’ wrote Albert Einstein in December ‘I am at all events convinced that He does not play dice.’.

Einstein was responding to a letter from the German physicist Max Born. "God tirelessly plays dice" Einstein described his "private opinion" of quantum physics in one of the letters by referencing a phrase that he had already made famous: "God does not play dice.
