Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An interesting take on Quantum Mechanics and Oriental Mystic Traditions An interesting book in that it is was one of the first written for the layman on both the metaphorical and literal parallels between quantum mechanics and oriental traditions such as Taoism and Zen, as well as eastern mystic traditions, though Zukav is more mystic than physicist,. see also: Fritjof Capra's The Tao of Physics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! If you are even remotely interested in physics, Read This Book! This should be required reading for first year science undergrads as it gives a nice history of where quantum physics came from and where it's going. Very easy to understand.

With its unique combination of depth, clarity, and humor that has enchanted millions, this beloved classic by bestselling author Gary Zukav opens the fascinating world of quantum physics to readers with no mathematical or technical background. "Wu Li" is the Chinese phrase for physics. It means "patterns of organic energy," but it also means "nonsense," "my way," "I clutch my ideas," and "enlightenment." These captivating ideas frame Zukav's evocative exploration of quantum mechanics and relativity theory. Delightfully easy to read, "The Dancing Wu Li Masters illuminates the compelling powers at the core of all we know.

Editorial Reviews

"Dealing with general relativity [Zukav] manages to convey the profound mental shift required to reduce physics to geometry. This is a neat trick, considering that he addresses an audience familiar with neither physics nor non-Euclidian geometry." (Robert March, Physics Today)
