I'm a reader of the original German edition of this book. While shopping for another English book, I discovered that the English translation of this one is finally available, and I feel deeply committed to letting the world know how great this unique book is. These aren't empty words - this book has changed my mind and my life. It goes way beyond what "Bleep", "The Secret" or other books and movies on the creative power of consciousness tell you. What I liked best it that it satisfied both my rational mind (which is a strong sceptic) and my spiritual soul - leading to a degree of inner peace I didn't know was possible (at least not without being actually enlightened).

The book first explains the basics of modern physics (relativity and quantum mechanics) in a language everyone can understand - but without simplifying things like all those other books that claim to "explain" the power of consciousness with the quantum laws (which is nonsense, as it's not that easy). Based on that and on findings of frontier science and spiritual experience, the book develops a complete, consistent world view that explains how consciousness (reaching from individual to cosmic consciousness) creates what we experience as reality.

The third part of the book somewhat returns back to earth by explaining how our brain often prevents us from creating the reality we wish for. While I was a bit disappointed at first by this rather "unspiritual" focus, this part ultimately turned out to be the most useful one for me. You wouldn't believe ho much power our archaic instincts and acquired behaviour patterns have over our daily life experience until you read this. But more important, the book also tells you how to provide your brain with new information that can turn around your life completely.

"The Making of Reality" is the very rare book that is at once informative, provocative and entertaining. Herr Starkmuth writes with a
lightness of touch that makes his complex subject matter - how that which we call `reality' is the illusory sum of all consciousness
(especially our own) conspiring together in it's creation - easy to digest without being trite, yet heavyweight enough to engage the intellect
without being pedantic.

The author's own scientific training forms the launch pad for a trajectory that swings the reader on a looping arc through the realms of
anthropology, psychology, religion, philosophy, metaphysics, particle physics and quantum theory ... a journey of discovery into the
origins of space and time, the nucleus of cells and atoms and the innermost core of human cognation. On the way he asks and answers
such questions as "can happiness really be `pursued'?" - "why is it so hard to get consensus on important issues?" - "why do dumb things
happen to smart people?" - "why does time go fast when I need it to go slow?" - "what is love, baby?" - "are we all perpetrators in a world
of victims?" - "does your freedom really end where mine begins?" - "how many lives has Schroedinger's cat?" and "where can I get a
good, multi-dimensional cup of coffee?"

So as not to over-tax the reader's grey-cells, the book also features a number of the author's own enlightening and amusing diagrams
to illustrate and clarify his arguments in those places where words alone are insufficient vectors. This is the kind of book that sneaks up
on you and subtly alters the way you think, behave, react and even empathize: a life-affirming and life-changing book for anyone going
through challenging times. Highly recommended!
