Editorial Reviews

Jo-Ann Greene
“[The Quantum Guide to Life] is a smartly entertaining way to understand some of the basics of a complicated discipline, and in the process perhaps learn more about ourselves.”

    Dear readers & Barnes & Noble,      I just finished Kuna

    Dear readers & Barnes & Noble,
         I just finished Kunal Das' recent book, The Quantum Guide To Life.  This is an excellent work describing physics and human nature.
    Das covers many topics all related to fundamental laws of our universe.  Globalization is discussed as a cultural-economic transformation creating
    an unavoidable new hybrid world.  The post World War II world sees analysis concerning "socio-economic gradients" that became glaringly apparent.
    Das goes on to cover the delicate issue of immigration from Third World countries with the accurate analogy of a dam.  Finally, Das insightfully states a formula for success = "Disciplined hard work x persistence x aggressive pursuit of goals."  I highly recommend this book.  Sincerely, Derek Webb
