The most exciting intellectual adventure I've been on since reading Robert Pirsig s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance." Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York" Times"Gary Zukav s 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."

This book is an amazingly clear explanation of quantum mechanics which does not require any math background. Gary Zukav not only explains clearly and in understandable terms this important topic, but also extends the application to include important inferances that are useful in understanding things today. We are living in a world where the applications of this topic come up all the time. It is a great read.

physics can be fun!
This is a good book for anyone who wants to see the Universe in a different light. You do not have to read and study this, just pick it up and read some and open some doors in your mind.

Engaging and informative
Gary Zukav covers a subject that can often times seem dry and unintelligible to non-physicists, and takes the reader on an incredibly interesting and thought provoking journey. He succeeds not only in explaining the basics in an enjoyable and readable manner, but weaves in the more abstract concepts of physics with remarkable perspective and clarity. I was engaged throughout, and was left with the sense of having learned something that mattered, something that extended far beyond those pages. That is an amazing feat on the authors part, as I am neither a mathematician or physicist. This book will forever be on my list of "must read at least once in your life".
