are field quanta in quantum field theory real? this book seems to suggest they are not? on the link just scroll down a bit. but as reality is made of field quanta? does that mean nothing is real? am I missing something again? help again please ....

You might want to search around for the "Minimal Statistical Interpretation"  try Google, and look for some of VanHees71's posts here. You'll probably find it to be unsatisfying (but the universe is under no obligation to satisfy you about much of anything); but it will tell you what sorts of questions you can expect QM to answer for you.
