I'll admit it, I couldn't finish this book and didn't even come close. I made it halfway into chapter 3 before I had enough of the self-flattery and the nonsense attack on scientist straw men that the authors seemingly sees everywhere but I personally never have come across once. From what I could bear to read, it seems all scientists view people exclusively as 'machines' and ignoring all other aspects of the human existence. The authors even made a link between the inquisitions burning and the scientist, somehow accusing the scientist of taking control over the narrative of human understanding. I just found the critique uneducated, meaningless and without respect for the people who has been on the fronline of creating our modern world. In the beginning of the book the authors claimed they were surprised by some attacks on the film the book is based on from the scientific community. That they were surprised by this is probably the biggest testimony to how ignorant this authors are.
What a waste of time and money, but if you like stuff like The Secret this book surely will fit your needs.

Any additional comments?
Though I really like the movie and have seen it several times, I found this book to be disorganized and boring.

For those who like to ask questions and are always curious about life this book is a real eye opening experience into the deeper meanings behind what life is and keeps you intrigued , once you have listened to just a small part of this you will never look at your life in the same way .... I have seen parts of the movie and am now deffinatley going to invest my time in watching it all now , the concepts are well explained yet if I'm honest will take a few listens to sink in as you are bombarded , in a good way of course , I have and would continue to recommend this book to others whether of an open mind or not , as this will certainly open anyone's mind

If you could sum up What the Bleep Do We Know in three words, what would they be?
Mind-blowing, Irreverent, Intriguing
What did you like best about this story?
A fascinating and easy to understand look at the latest cutting edge science with glimpses of the intersection of science and religion. A life changing book if you will allow it to be.
What does Suzanne Toren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Fun, humour, irony.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It's too much for one sitting. I have listened to it now perhaps 20 times, and each time I take it slowly, remembering new things.
