Pseudoscientific nonsense

by Teresa E on Oct 19, 2012

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.

A good 'read' as a book on CD

by Charles C C on Sep 20, 2012

I listened to this book in the CD format. It was well worth the money and the author voiced several of my own views on life and events. I highly recommend this book for people with open minds.

Science Shows Cosmic Connections

by Carolyn B on Jul 28, 2011

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.

Hoemopathy Medicine

by John S on Apr 7, 2011

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.

Garbage

by John on Nov 25, 2010

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.
