Publisher's Summary

Are you seeking a deeper understanding of consciousness? Are you interested in meditation or currently practicing meditation? The Buddha and the Quantum is about the connection between meditation and physics.
Many books show parallels between consciousness and physics; a few of these attempt to explain consciousness in terms of the physics of everyday experience. This is the only book that explains physics and the everyday world in terms of consciousness alone.
It is also unique in that it demonstrates why we think there is a world independent of consciousness, explained in the same structure that explains quantum mechanics and relativity theory.
Buddha and the Quantum describes how experience in the physical world is built not from objective reality, but from experience within. Avery's brilliant model of consciousness makes difficult and subtle ideas understandable, with very surprising implications.

Enlightening and engaging

If you could sum up The Buddha and the Quantum in three words, what would they be?

An enlightening and engaging perspective on consciousness and physics.

Any additional comments?

Few books deal well with physics and consciousness. The more spiritually oriented books tend to get the science wrong. The more scientifically oriented books can be hard for a non-scientist to follow. This book didn't have those issues. Very well done and I learned quite a bit.

Science and Religion, Brought Together

Author Samuel Avery says up front that he is neither a Buddhist nor a physicist. Turns out, neither am I, so I take this book as being transmitted from one enthusiast to another. At the same time, it would seem the author knows his stuff. I would love to hear feedback from a Buddhist quantum physicist on this.

Due to the nature of quantum physics and the explanations required for the author to get his point across, I would recommend active (mindful) listening to this audiobook. While the information presented is done so as simplistically as possible, trying to listen to this title while doing other things will only result in confusion and missed explanations. It requires your whole attention. In that manner, you have to operate like a Buddhist to get the information within. Nice touch. While listening mindfully, I did find the author's explanations to be confusing, but I can see where some might just as easily need to rewind some things and hear them a second time to ensure you really did hear something the way you thought you did. It's just the nature of the beast in this case.

All in all, I found this book interesting in the extreme, and I recommend it to the curious who like to ponder the higher questions of the cosmos. The author narrates the audio himself, and his manner comes across cool and conversational, as though speaking to a peer.

I loved 'Paradigm Shift' but .......

Any additional comments?

I was quite disappointed with this book I thought the same points were laboured too much; I found myself thinking 'yes I've got the point let's move on'. Perhaps I missed the point though as I lost comprehension 1/3 of the way through the book. That said I definitely think it worth listening to it again.
