Format: Paperback
I must preface this review by revealing that my last encounter with physics came to an unhappy end at age 13 when my teacher suggesting it was a waste of both our time for me to continue to study it. If only she had been able to capture my creative imagination and provoke a thirst for scientific knowledge in the manner of this remarkable book. This book has excited me more than any non-fiction work I have read in the last five years. I actually found myself breaking the habit of a lifetime and scrawling huge exclamation marks, Yes!'s and other comments in the margins. Aside from the riveting content, high praise indeed for the beautiful precision of the writing. When one considers the scope of the breadth and depth of the ideas in this book it seems quite miraculous that the authors have managed to condense this virtual encyclopaedia of knowledge into one slim volume. Required reading for all right-brained inquiring minds who "really aren't in to science!"

Format: Paperback
Much of Todays Science tries to completely avoid Religious and spiritual elements altogether and much of todays Religion tries to avoid Scientific fact and lead one on a " Hazy " Juorney of " spiritual enlightenment" . While not agreeing with all of Their Conclusions , there is much food for thought as I compliment the Authors sincere attempt at bridging the gap between Science and Spirituality . If you are trying to have a better understanding between both . Then this book will give some thought provoking Questions and is definitely worth reading .I personally found the first few chapters on the theory of Vortex energy and the atom , as well as 18th Century Physics well worth the price of the book .

This book might possibly change your view of the universe. It is very thought provoking and portrays physics in a way that makes the subject truly interesting and even exciting! It is a must read for all who wonder what makes the world go 'round.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By William Waterway on April 18, 2007
Format: Paperback
We see vortex energy expressed in hurricanes - whirlpools - when we flush a toilet or drain a sink - in clouds - swirling champagne bubbles floating upward from the bottom of a flute glass - spiral galaxies - black holes - within our body's flowing blood - in the curl of oceanic waves - the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf Stream -- the list is infinite. A telling quote from this book is: "Just as the vortex creates space and matter, so it can be seen as creating time. Einstein believed that, in the absence of matter, there would be now space and no time either. He saw time and space as being inextricably linked, with time as a fourth dimension. We can see, through the vortex, why time is linked to matter." This book offfers many nuggets of gold for those willing to do a little prospecting. However, the presentation leaves something to be desired when it comes to presenting complex subject matter in an easy-to-understand format.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping for an informative look at a natural phenomenon. I was very disapointed. Aside from a few interesting paragraphs near the beginning, this book has no facts whatever. It's just a bumch of rambling about the authors' personal philosophies that have no real basis at all. Granted, the theories are mildly interesting (and as far as I know, original) but they are completely useless to anyone looking for something practical. If philosophy is what you want, you might very well find this book interesting. Otherwise it's a waist of time. If you want some practical information about vortices, I suggest you buy something about Lord Kelvin or Viktor Schauberger.
