Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The most exciting intellectual adventure I've been on since reading Robert Pirsigs Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.”
—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times

Gary Zukavs timeless, humorous, New York Times bestselling masterpiece, The Dancing Wu Li Masters, is arguably the most widely acclaimed introduction to quantum physics ever written. Scientific American raves: “Zukav is such a skilled expositor, with such an amiable style, that it is hard to imagine a layman who would not find his book enjoyable and informative.” Accessible, edifying, and endlessly entertaining, The Dancing Wu Li Masters is back in a beautiful new edition—and the doors to the fascinating, dazzling, remarkable world of quantum physics are opened to all once again, no previous mathematical or technical expertise required.

Synopsis:

Quantum Physics is the pinnacle achievement of Western science. "Wu Li" is the Chinese word for physics. It means "Patterns of Organic Energy", but it also means "Nonsense", "My Way", "I Clutch My Ideas", and "Enlightenment". These enchanting ideas form the framework through which Zukav weaves his exploration of quantum mechanics and relativity theory. Surprisingly clear and easy to read, The Dancing Wu Li Masters is written for readers with no mathematical or technical background. This rare combination of depth, accuracy, and humor have endeared this book to millions of readers.
