Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With its unique combination of depth, clarity, and humor that has enchanted millions, this beloved classic by bestselling author Gary Zukav opens the fascinating world of quantum physics to readers with no mathematical or technical background. "Wu Li" is the Chinese phrase for physics. It means "patterns of organic energy," but it also means "nonsense," "my way," "I clutch my ideas," and "enlightenment." These captivating ideas frame Zukav's evocative exploration of quantum mechanics and relativity theory. Delightfully easy to read, The Dancing Wu Li Masters illuminates the compelling powers at the core of all we know.

Synopsis:

Featuring a new introduction, an exploration of quantum physics and relativity theory is presented for the layperson reader in an accessible and occasionally whimsical format. By the author of The Seat of the Soul. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
