Bohm and Hiley make an argument for a new interpretation of quantum mechanics in which the hypothetical models calculated to account for experimental observations correspond to actually-occurring processes, rather than simply mathematical abstractions used to facilitate accurate predictions.
Over the years, Bohm and Hiley developed this theory in detail, guarding it against the criticisms which had led de Broglie to abandon it.

It is about a lot more than re-framing contemporary quantum mechanics with a more intuitive paradigm.
