These oscillating waves seem to be the key to all sorts of unexplained phenomena: ESP, homeopathy, energy medicine, spiritual healing, intercessory prayer, psychic phenomena, and the homing instincts of animals are examples. In this work, Lynne McTaggart follows the life and work of disparate physicists who seem to be on the verge of bringing about the same type of revolution that occurred exactly a century ago when quantum theory changed the face of physics forever. This book introduces characters not only from the scientific community but also from the CIA and NASA. Lynne's interviews with scientists working in Edinburgh, Russia and the USA build a picture of an interconnected universe and a new scientific theory which makes sense of supernatural phenomena.Hide synopsis

To the delight of con-artists everywhere, you can make any crazy idea seem believable as long as you tack the word "quantum" onto it. This book is no exception. Her use of scientific-sounding terms and citing of self-proclaimed "experts" (read: her fellow scientific illiterates) are an attempt to legitimize completely baseless claims.
If you're looking for a legitimate understanding of physics, get a science textbook and apply yourself. If you're looking for feel-good, new-aged, easily digestible fairy tales, buy this book. As they say, keep your mind open, but not so open that your brain falls out.
The Field started out slow, with lots of scientific jargon and details, but sucked me in with the statement, "There is no mass, only charge." McTaggart goes on to document little-known experiments that show we're all a lot more connected than we might have thought.
This book has an interesting chapter on homeopathy and the receipe for creating it. The rest of the book is a little too spiritual for me. Its not that there is s spiritual effect, but the people who write about it make it complicated.
I have seldom been unable to read an entire book, but this one, with its misinterpretation of science and biased outlook, was so disturbing that I put it down for good after only about 50 pages. The author's opinions or hopes are presented as fact and scientific results are misapplied or misunderstood or else deliberately twisted to suit the bias. Don't waste your time.
