This Description may be from another edition of this product.

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.

   Still the very best introduction to the mysteries of quantum physics
The very best introduction to the mysteries of quantum physics is still the very best introduction. As Sir James Jeans said, not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can conceive. Gary Gary Zukav brings this strangeness home in mathematics-free, clear language, and he does it like no other.
   Quantum mechanics translated into English for the lay reader. It's an eye opener.
I read it for the first time when I was a teenager and fell in love with it. Quantum mechanics are translated for the lay reader into English, and is an eye opener. Although the writer did not specifically connect the argument, this is the first book I read, where I tried to connect the dots between science and spirituality. When I saw it in ebook format, I couldn 't resist revisiting this old favorite.
   Introduction to Quantum Mechanics
I am glad that Wu Li Masters read my little more, but I anticipated a little more. I found some of the illustrations difficult to follow, but was overall illuminated. In order to study the information thoroughly, much time would be required to digest the demonstrations or illustrations, and I did not want to spend the time to do so. The author seemed to me related to much research for the book, but some of it was not much relevant to the theme presented.
I had read this book before buying it from Amazon. I find the book very informative and very interesting ''. I don 't think that most people would, though. This topic is only relevant for the select few.
   Terrific way to start reading and learning about particle physics
I read many books on particle physics and this is by far the best for a beginner. If you want to get a basic understanding of understanding, this is the book for you.
   There is no World!
Gary Gary Zukov outlines the psychedelic implications of quantum physics, a science that shows us what we are looking for. Only our looking is happening at the unconscious level and we project our buried thoughts and feelings onto what we think is the outside world when there is no world out there and we see what we were looking for buried within us. S is a small but effective way to describe a certain degree of sophistication.
   Well written, a classic
A classic take on new physics, this book is now considered brilliant. Touches the heart of the subject.
   Search for The Divine in The Science
This book is designed for you very intelligent souls who have always suspected how connected we are as in EVERYTHING! When the quantum physics breaks it all down, it is all about energy... and so much more!
   If you've ever wondered about Quantum Physics, this book is the place to start.
Initially, this book attracted my attention by its unusual title and cover graphics. I read the short overview so that I thought I would give it a try. Well, I was not disappointed by my decision to purchase and then spent quite a few hours delving into the world of quantum physics. Since my educational background is in business and law, this book was for me ground breaking territory. I admit that much of the book was over my head, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. I recommend this as a primer for anyone who has wondered about quantum physics, but doesn 't know where to start.
This felt like a physics class all over again. I did not know what my instructors were trying to convey. The book struck me as a historical narrative of major physicists dancing to the tune of their achievements. I will go back to contemplating the complexities of the universe by viewing its simplicities, such as the life of a warm bear caterpillar as it crosses a woolly highway.
