“The most exciting intellectual adventure I've been on since reading Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.”
—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times

Gary Zukav’s timeless, humorous, New York Times bestselling masterpiece, The Dancing Wu Li Masters, is arguably the most widely acclaimed introduction to quantum physics ever written. Scientific American raves: “Zukav is such a skilled expositor, with such an amiable style, that it is hard to imagine a layman who would not find his book enjoyable and informative.” Accessible, edifying, and endlessly entertaining, The Dancing Wu Li Masters is back in a beautiful new edition—and the doors to the fascinating, dazzling, remarkable world of quantum physics are opened to all once again, no previous mathematical or technical expertise required.

This book is a tremendous pitfall for people who are sincerely attempting to learn about the subject of Quantum Field Theory. As someone in the later stages of their Astrophysics PhD I can tell you that your time will be better spent with Richard Feynman's QED lectures. You can find all three of them online for free. Shame on this author for taking advantage of the curiosity of sincere people. The unsubstantiated conclusions and "God of the Gaps" style reasoning are enough to cause severe headaches if reasoning rationally and honestly is a pet peeve of yours.

***The library system should classify this book as Fiction, as it's claims are non-falsifiable, therefore not testable, rendering it uninteresting as a proclamation of the true reality of nature. It should sit next to the book about how the moon is made of cheese.***

A beautiful blending of modern physics and eastern philosophies. I'll admit that it's not for everyone though.
