The Dancing Wu Li Masters
An Overview of the New Physics
“The most exciting intellectual adventure I've been on since reading Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.”
—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times
Gary Zukav’s timeless, humorous, New York Times bestselling masterpiece, The Dancing Wu Li Masters, is arguably the most widely acclaimed introduction to quantum physics ever written. Scientific American raves: “Zukav is such a skilled expositor, with such an amiable style, that it is hard to imagine a layman who would not find his book enjoyable and informative.” Accessible, edifying, and endlessly entertaining, The Dancing Wu Li Masters is back in a beautiful new edition—and the doors to the fascinating, dazzling, remarkable world of quantum physics are opened to all once again, no previous mathematical or technical expertise required.
Good science but a bit dated since gluons and string theory aren’t mentioned. Forced fit on the eastern religion analogies.
A total surprise
One of the most fascinating and entertaining books I've read. Zukav's background is not in the physical sciences which perhaps makes this very thorough exploration of quantum physics such an enjoyable and accessible read. Is at the same time spiritual and intellectual - finding a convergence in these arenas that I wouldn't have thought possible. Recommended reading for anyone who enjoys great nonfiction.
