This was a very intriguing discussion integrating modern concepts in physics with ancient eastern philosophies. The author talked about some of the differences between eastern and western thought, particularly how eastern thinking is more open to the intuitive/spiritual nature of things while western thinking relies heavily on rational thinking. He showed how ancient eastern beliefs are being revealed in recent discoveries in quantum mechanics. I am a believer in the web of life, the interconnectedness of everything, and thoroughly enjoyed how the author fit everything together.
The book was very understandable for the lay person and the narration was well done too for such a difficult topic. I look forward to listening to the author?s other audible book, The Web of Life.

What did you like best about The Tao of Physics? What did you like least?
A clear and concise introduction to quantum physics.
Any additional comments?
Unfortunately this recording is a transcription of the cassette tapes which came out with all the noise associated with it. It would have been better to have rerecorded this abridged version of the book or to have digitally washed it to improve the sound quality. Now to the abridgment. I read the book when it first came out and found it very informative, clearly written, and easy to understand. The abridgment cuts way to much out of the original narrative in an apparent effort to reach the widest audience possible. An unabridged version would be appreciated.
