Publisher's Summary

This award winning nonfiction book, A Search for Meaning: From the Surface of a Small Planet, is both sober and lighthearted, sometimes awed and sometimes irreverent (toward both science and religion) - but always intensely personal, rational, stretching, and pressing toward a wedding of scientific understanding and mystical thought. Although Don Pendleton (1927-1995) did not come draped with academic honors or letters, his extensive background in science and communications - as a telegrapher, an aerospace engineer, a metaphysical scholar, and author, gave him the ability to take a reader very far beyond themselves, whether it be in fiction or in nonfiction.
In this audiobook, Pendleton dramatically investigates the sciences, religions, and philosophies with a view toward dignifying the human experience and provides a frame work in which the individual listener may validate his/her own life and dreams relating to the whole. Don's slant into the material is unique; often humorous; the findings evocative; conclusions satisfying for the rationalist; inspiring; and, perhaps, even transformational for the true seeker.
Those who wish to be challenged by innovative thinking and daring ideas - reaching with their minds to coax out an understanding of the world as well as the meaning of their own lives - will find this book takes them on a spiritual search as well as an intellectual one.

Critic Reviews

"...the tenor of the book invites a broad audience to read, to think about, to puzzle over the many questions he asks in his quest to understand the meaning of 'meaning.' ...all in all, this book is a must-read for a general audience." (Gabriele Rico, PhD., author)
