Gary Zukav has written "the Bible" for those who are curious about the mind-expanding discoveries of advanced physics, but who have no scientific background.  Like a Wu Li Master who would teach us wonder for the falling petal before speaking of gravity, Zukav writes in beautifully clear language--with no mathematical equations--opening our minds to the exciting new theories that are beginning to embrace the ultimate nature of our universe...Quantum mechanics, relativity, and beyond to the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect and Bell's theorem.

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.
