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.

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

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.***
