Schrödinger's Kittens and the Search for Reality is a book by John Gribbin, published in 1996, which attempts to explain the mysteries of modern quantum mechanics in a popular-scientific way. It is a sequel to his earlier book, In Search of Schrödinger's Cat which was published in 1984.

In his epilogue Gribbin touches on the most recent developments of string theory at the time of writing, and introduces the transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics as the new "mythology" of our time. His point being not to refute the theory, but to demonstrate how all theories can be true and mythological depending on your perspective.
