I knew this book would not be an easy read. It was surprisingly simple for a layperson like me. The book deals with the relationship between Eastern Mysticism and Modern Physics - both difficult in their own right. I must confess that the physics part of it was way over my head but I could understand enough to see the relationship. The author shows that the principal theories and models of modern physics lead to a view of the world which is consistent and in perfect harmony with the views of Eastern Mysticism. The author goes in depth into Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism and I thoroughly enjoyed these descriptions. If you want to read a book which brings science and philosophy together this is the perfect book.
