I thought I was getting a up to date explaination in layman's terms of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. Instead I get what sounds like a Tao/Buddist/Eastern Philosophy on Life in the Universe. This is not for someone interested in Physics. If you want to know someone's idea of where you fit in the Universe this is your book.
A wasted Credit for me....

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

If your expectations are that you have science all figured out and you just want someone to tell you what you already think you know, then this recording with violate your expectations. But, if you do not think you have it all figured out and you want to experience one way in which quantum physics can take you down the rabbit hole of weirdness, this recording is for you

The first half dozen chapters or so seemed to relate to what I had imagined as Quantum Physics. This totally theoretical field of physics requires an open mind. It does seem to go a little "strange" later on when the author starts advocating shamanism ("witch doctors" and that sort of thing) but when you consider what he's talking about this is probably the only example he could use to demonstrate the "reality" of how quantum physics has been used, as it does all seem shrouded in mystery.
Nevertheless, I did feel inclined to keep listening just to see where he was going with it. A few bits made me laugh out loud, although I'm not sure they were supposed to!
Probably not one I'll recommend to my scientifically minded friends though- you need an open mind to entertain the thought of "there's possibly something beyond the physical world" to really appreciate this book, although I'm not talking about religion.

The narrators voice does grate a bit, well a lot sometimes but I really enjoyed this book Its obviously aimed at the ordinary person and I found it really interesting.
