[asa] planck for the layman?

I'm needing help understanding some of the apparent ramifications that come from
Planck's constant ... such as: somehow a quantized packet of energy leads to a
"smallest packet" of space? --and of time as well? I think I remember this from
a previous ASA discussion, but didn't understand it at the time & still don't now.

Does this effectively cap our logarithmic romp towards smaller things in much
the same way as Einstein's still expanding space caps the "think-big" end?
If there is a good book on Planck for the layman, let me know.

(It's enough to give a Euclidean-minded geometry teacher a headache.)
