Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics (2 Cassettes)

( 28 )

Overview

Particle physics is a science that few of us really understand. Indeed, it can be an intimidating, confusing study. Or it can be, as it is in The Dancing Wu Li Masters, a comprehensible, awe-inspiring world of absolute wonder and enchantment. In beautifully clear, often poetic language, with no mathematical equations, Gary Zukav presents this carefully abridged edition of his bestseller to open our minds to ideas that embrace the nature of the universe, and to help us gain ...

Overview

Particle physics is a science that few of us really understand. Indeed, it can be an intimidating, confusing study. Or it can be, as it is in The Dancing Wu Li Masters, a comprehensible, awe-inspiring world of absolute wonder and enchantment. In beautifully clear, often poetic language, with no mathematical equations, Gary Zukav presents this carefully abridged edition of his bestseller to open our minds to ideas that embrace the nature of the universe, and to help us gain intellectual and spiritual access to this often-baffling world.

With the skill of a Zen master — who, rather than tell us about a subject leads us to understand the experience of it — Mr. Zukav discusses the essence of physics with the sense of fascination and inspiration we all feel when we look at the vastness of our universe. He probes its simplicity and its magic — the universal dance of everything from stars and immense galaxies to invisible, sub-atomic particles — and leads us to see and appreciate all of it with new eyes.

Brilliant science writing for the general reader, this is a history and explanation of physics as it evolved from Newton to the present.

    Excellent for the non-scientist!

    As a college science instructor always seeking new ways to express the basal concepts (and deeper implications) of physics, chemistry, and the geosciences to beginning science and non-science majors, this book is a fine resource.

    Finally, something that lay people can understand!

    This is a wonderful book. I've tried to wade my way through contemporary physics, but it is all too esoteric to comprehend. Along comes the Dancing Wu Li Masters. Written for people who have no background in the complicated mathematical theories behind what's happening in physics today, this book is a life saver for those who wish to know, but don't have the time to explore, the new interpretation of our universe. Highly recommended!

    So you think you have a grip on reality...

    Perception, as it turns out, is not reality. Gary Zukav takes us on a journey of discovery through the bizzare landscape of quatum physics. Beautifully written. Some of the hardest scientific concepts to understand are explained in simple conversational english. This book is a must read for anyone on a quest of discovery.

    A well written, easy to follow book on a complicated subject.

    Zukav's style of writing made this book enjoyable to read for me. There are other books out that are similar in nature, but certainly not as well written. This is one of my favorite books and I'm on my second reading now. I usually read 2 or 3 books at the same time, interchanging them a few chapters at a time. A book that has just come out, 'Spiritual Quanta', is what I'm reading along with Zukav's book. They are both very revealing. Thanks for a great read!
