I wish I could express how seminal Music of the Spheres was in launching 40 years of studying quantum mechanics. If you are curious, or have a child who is curious, this set of books will take you inside a realm that is far more beautiful than most can imagine. BUY THESE BOOKS!

Before reading this book I was deaf to the multitude of sweet symphonies and songs and cantatas and preludes and operas sounding in both the furthest reaches of the cosmos and the deepest depths of the microcosms. Guy Murchie not only cured my deafness, but introduced me to the minstrels who sang the songs and the composers who composed the symphonies and the lyricists who wrote the words giving meaning and understanding to the universe all around and within us. Maestro Guy Murchie has well penned a masterpiece of popular science literature as inspiring as Beethoven's Eroica Symphony and as lucid as Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The words he writes are like an opera singing forth the wisdom of the ages with all the silver-sweet songs of science romancing our attentive ears.

Mr. Murchie is a poet when writing about the universe. For me, reading his books is like listening to music...it is very spiritual stuff.
