5.0 out of 5 stars Change your paradigms, change your life!
I have a whole bookshelf dedicated to Law of Attraction books; even a few of which are based on "quantum science" and promise that if I tap into the field of unlimited potential just right, all of my wishes will come true.
And where I've had nominal advances in changing my life, I still tend to pick up any book that says anything like "here is the real secret...

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting with some inconsistencies
The book is easy to read. There are mistakes, such as every scientist quoted is listed as a Nobel Prize winner, which all of them are not, Stephen Hawking being 1 example.

5.0 out of 5 stars Change your paradigms, change your life!,
And where I've had nominal advances in changing my life, I still tend to pick up any book that says anything like "here is the real secret you need to get this stuff to work even better" only to find after reading the book that I've already read about that particular "secret." I found myself feeling over read and under done, and knew I really needed to just focus on living what I'd read about.
So, needless to say, when I received my kindle edition of "Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail," I may have been open minded, but still expected to breeze through the book, reading the same thing put a different way.
This was not the case! Though yes, if you are a student of LOA, and have ready any of the books out there, you will read about some familiar concepts.
What I liked that was different:
For one thing, in the few books on quantum physics I've read, the author tends to say things like "quantum physics has found..." but not give any references? So how do I know they are not just making this stuff up? Greg offers references and suggested reading. I liked that he was getting his information from a source, and not third or fourth hand from someone saying "quantum science has found..." And where Greg may have said this too (I don't actually remember) I DO remember his sources, and even looked a couple of them up myself!
He talks about paradigms.
"...paradigms tell us why we do things the way we do them. Our paradigms are the umbrella under which all the things we do make sense to us; they are, in fact, the reasons we do things the way we do them." ~ From the book - (location 167).
Our paradigms can change when we receive new information.
Unfortunately, the majority of people hold paradigms that are quite old. And, these paradigms haven't been updated at all. I think it's funny when you consider that most people don't even use the same cell phone for more than a year, yet are happily working out of paradigms that could be thousands of years old.
Fortunately, we can update our paradigms once we know that there was something we didn't know.
Greg's book is a comprehensive guide to updating paradigms in a way that's easy, understandable, and VERY clear!
He also points out some things that are notorious for holding us back - even when we are taking all the right actions!
Did you know you may have a cellular addiction that is keeping you in a space of negative thinking?
Did you know that your expectations are as important as your actions?
Did you know that most popular culture goes to great lengths to convince you that you are flawed and limited so that they may sell you a product to make you "better?"
Did you know "telling it like it is" may be different than "telling it like you see it?"
I will say that I liked this book well enough to write out key points and tape them up on my wall so that they'd sink in. I truly believe that we were all meant to not just live life, but live it abundantly. Deep inside each of us is a tender and precious heart that aspires to something greater than the limitations we put on ourselves. Deep inside each of us is a radiant light meant to shine bright. I think that every day, more and more people are feeling this inside of them, and longing to get out of that teeny fish tank of a life. "Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail" gave me new tools that feel good to use, and I can see (and feel) them making a difference little by little, every day; they move me toward a brighter expression of myself!
(Note: this book was a gift from the author, given to me for the purpose of reviewing. I don't know him, have never met him, and seriously, if I couldn't have gotten through the first couple of chapters of this book - a review would never have even been written because I tend to not want to waste my time on books I don't like.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Genius!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am currently reading this book by Joyce Meyer "Change your words, change your life" and if you are a believer in God and you read this book while you read "Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail" you will get an epiphany. The truth unfolds right there in front of you. I had to sit back and take a breath of fresh air; it's more overwhelming than one could possibly imagine.
I would highly recommend reading "The Field" by Lynn McTaggart as well. Then read these scriptures such as Mark 11: 22-23. Matthew 18:19, Philippians 2:14, Proverbs 4:20-27, 1 Peter 4:8-10, and Romans 12:1-2. Those are just a few scriptures that tie into this book.
After you read the books I recommended and watch the movie "What the Bleep do we know" & "Everything is Spiritual" by Rob Bell your mind will be enlightened to a greater truth that will change your life forever!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greg Kuhn, Fish Tanks, Quantum Physics, and Living Better!,
Quoting two passages form his book will give the reader the impetus to explore Kuhn's ideas: `What follows is a brief reprise of each of quantum physics' four main principles, the new fish tank we now have because of it, and the old fish tank it replaces: * All matter is made up of unified wholes that are often greater than the sum of their parts. This gives rise to the new paradigm of holism and replaces the old paradigm of mechanism. * There is not necessarily a relationship between cause and effect. This gives rise to the new paradigm of unity and replaces the old paradigm of determinism. * The observer and the observed cannot be separated. This gives rise to the new paradigm of entanglement and replaces the old paradigm of separateness. * Systems are not linear. This gives rise to the new paradigm of nonlinearity and replaces the old paradigm of logical outcomes.' And Kuhn explains how these four points are diametrically opposed to our old now outdated concepts of physics.
The other passage then follows logically: `The action-based paradigm stressed that every response or outcome in our universe can be explained by finding the thing that has exerted itself upon that which moved or changed. Forces such as gravity, momentum, mass in motion, or, simply, someone or something pushing are always responsible for any movement or change. This is a logical explanation for movement and not only jibes with our common sense but also meets the "naked eye" test. In fact, Newton considered the idea of anything contrary to the action-based paradigm to be completely irrational and utter nonsense. The action-based paradigm is also applied to non-physical movement such as your state of mind, your decisions, political movements, business, and philosophy. If, for example, you have a problem in your life, you have been taught that non-physical forces may be just as responsible as physical ones. In the action-based paradigm, forces such as your upbringing, social expectations, popular culture, and the way you were parented as a child are all thought to be responsible for your problem. Once again, this is logical to us and is generally accepted.'
So, given Greg Kuhn's style of writing and creating pathways of changing our ways of viewing the world and our positions in it, people who truly want to change their unsatisfactory lives CAN. Read and gloat and enjoy the entertaining mental circus within this volume. Grady Harp, January 13

4.0 out of 5 stars An easier to understand book about quantum physics,
I have seen these concepts before in other books, but not explained the way Greg Kuhn has taken the time to break them down. If you are of the mind that we are only beginning to break the ice on understanding quantum mechanics and the future of modern thinking, then this book will be very enlightening.
Without sounding like a bunch of new aged gibberish, this book details the paths we can all take to improving our daily perception of our lives and how to increase our ability to ensure our won success through outside-the-box thinking.
One of my favorite quotes from this book is "No event or circumstance is inherently "good" or inherently "bad." No event or circumstance awaits you in a preexisting state of "goodness" or "badness." There is no such thing."
There were certain parts of this book that I found to be particularly engaging. One of them was the discussion on the changing thinking of our generation and past generations. This book pointed out both how far we have come as laterally thinking creatures and how far we still have to go.
Not that one would ordinarily think of a book with this type of subject matter as being fun to read, but this one was. The author makes use of short, moralistic stories to help convey his point. This made me laugh at times and also gave me a more rounded viewpoint of how the science could be applied.
If you are stuck in a repeat pattern, wondering where to go from here and if there is anything you can do to change your outcome, this is a book you should read.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splash out of your old fish tank...,
Kuhn succeeds at putting complicated quantum concepts into simple, usable terms. The book is filled with engaging illustrations, like "Splash"...the little fish who, in spite of all her efforts, could not change her circumstances until she changed her paradigm (her fish tank).
Kuhn's stories and examples are effective tools to understanding the fundamental laws of quantum physics, and how these laws influence our lives.
What I most enjoyed about the book was the practical applications. Kuhn gives solid how-to tips on using quantum concepts for attaining the life we want.
To be clear, this isn't a "get it now, get it fast" approach. The tools and instructions Kuhn provides will work, but only if the reader does the work first. I appreciated that the book makes no promises, other than if applied and practiced, quantum applications will work if put into action daily.
Overall, the book is a valuable tool and user-friendly. The instructions are grounded in quantum facts which Kuhn has obviously researched thoroughly.
If you are a newbie to quantum physics, metaphysics, or law-of-attrtaction this book will serve you well. Likewise, if you're a long-term practitioner of quantum applications, this book will serve as a good refresher, and will re-trigger some points you may have overlooked or forgotten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Law of Attraction Success Book Based on Quantum Physics Concepts,
In Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail, Greg Kuhn uses the analogy of a fish tank throughout to explain how our paradigms and beliefs are shaped, and how they in turn shape the world we experience. He describes how the latest scientific discoveries redefine the fishbowl that we live in, and how we can expand our vision and life paradigm accordingly. As a result, we can experience more of what we desire in our lives and experience greater happiness and satisfaction.
The book provides the reader with a wealth of powerful life-transforming advice. Kuhn also gives six specific tools for change which are potent and will most definitely precipitate tremendous advances in a person's life. The book is filled with fascinating facts, stories, and also personal examples from the author's own life.
Anyone who feels hesitant about delving into a book that discusses Science need have no fears. The author does a tremendous job of bringing this all down to ground level, and explaining complex concepts in a manner that is simple, direct and applicable to the reader's life and experience. Moreover, the examples given are definitely not the same old jaded ones you read in books that try to tap into quantum physics. Rather, they are fresh and interesting. So too are the many stories and analogies that Kuhn provides throughout.
Overall, this book is an outstanding contribution to Success literature and is highly recommended. Even someone how has read widely in this field before will still come away from this book with many valuable gems, and a workable plan for life transformation.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll See it When You Believe It,
This review is from: Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail: Learn the Secrets of Achieving Almost Anything Your Heart Desires (Paperback)ALL IT TAKES IS CHANGING YOUR BELIEFS
`Law of Attraction Enthusiasts: It's Not Your Fault - Classical Physics May Not Be All It's Purported To Be'
...Not entirely anyway. The primary reason most everyone who has attempted to apply the Law of Attraction has had such a difficult time doing so, is because our BS meters often register in the red, if not completely off the charts when trying to make the Law work for us. In other words, our `common sense' - i.e. what we've been taught by Classical Physics - tells us that the way the law is alleged to work, just can't possibly work in that manner.
But is that really true? Part of the problem may be that most of us have been taught to believe - again, primarily through Newtonian or mechanical physics, a.k.a. `Classical' Physics - that if we can't see, taste, touch or otherwise physically experience something, it can't possibly be real. But what is reality?
Based on his own research Kuhn has also come to the conclusion that, "...the outside world is created by one's inside world..." To show how this is possible, Kuhn references an experiment conducted by Quantum physicists called the double-slit experiment, which proved that electrons - which make up our visible world - do not have or take form UNTIL THEY ARE OBSERVED. Before this point, they exist in a state of infinite possibilities - not concrete or physical reality.
As Kuhn summarizes, "The building blocks of all material things exist in a state of mere unrealized potential until you (the observer) turn your attention to them and command them to take a concrete and final form." And, because this experiment, the entanglement experiment, the non-linearity experiments and other experiments have been repeatedly duplicated with the same results and have satisfied Classical Physics' empirical requirements, and have therefore proven that we do `create our own reality, the experiments (and Quantum Physics) further show that `[we] see and experience exactly what [we] expect to see and experience."
But how does this relate to our desire to lose weight, make money, find our one true love, or just...be happy? Says Kuhn, what we've been taught - what we think, and thus, our beliefs - have shaped that reality.
Further, is it really necessary to take PHYSICAL action (as I once believed) to draw or attract to us those things we truly desire?
Again, according to Kuhn, specifically referencing the Quantum Physics entanglement experiment, "...since your energy is co-mingling with the energy of all you are observing, you can now consider your EXPECTATIONS to be just as important as your actions. Your preconceptions have just as much impact on any experience as the specific actions you're taking."
Therefore, where with Classical Physics, "seeing is believing," with Quantum Physics, "believing is seeing." In other words, When you understand that your reality truly IS created by your beliefs, then will you also understand that, if you don't like what you have thus far created, then it is necessary to CHANGE those beliefs in order to manifest the desires of your dreams.
Ultimately, it all boils down to self-worth. Additionally, if we allow our emotions to dictate our self-worth, we end up with not only a small bucket, but holes in the one we have. Consequently, changing our beliefs also requires that we change our emotions around that or any belief.
In summing up, says, Kuhn, "you'll see it when you believe it."
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Greg for writing this, and his previous book, Why Quantum Physicists Don't Get Fat. Although I've read many works similar to Greg's, none has sparked as many epiphanies as have Greg's body of work. Greg's ideas have helped me to `get' that if I truly wish to change something, I must believe that I not only already have it, but that I've always had it. Namaste.
