Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Engaging I am incredibly fascinated by the similarities between ancient spiritual teachings and modern science. This book does an excellent job in showcasing these similarities. There is another book with the same concept called The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra but, in my opinion, this book is better written and much more engaging.

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.
