This review is from: The Theory of Elementary Waves: A New Explanation of Fundamental Physics (Hardcover)
In this book Dr. Little presents his comprehensive theory of physics. The method used is reasoning from factual information inductively towards a coherent physical theory. This contrasts with many physical theories today that represent theories imposed on reality i.e. deductively. Accordingly, these currently accepted theories always have nasty inconsistencies that result from the deductive approach.
Although the book is quite accessible to the general reader, this is not light reading. One must progress slowly in order to absorb the various points that are made in each chapter. As you would expect, the subject matter builds on itself. Thusly, each component is integrated consistently with existing knowledge in a coherent manner yielding a comprehensive whole.
Although the criticism of current physical theories laid down in the book by the author is deserved, I found it perhaps more severe than I would have used. The book clearly explains why current theories are irrational and then goes on to present a coherent theory of matter.
I am in complete disagreement with the reviews expressed by Hobbyman and O. R. Blaumanis - they must have read different books.
I recommend the book to anyone who is interested in promising physical theories. But, the book is more than that. For the first time, a theory is presented that yields a rational quantum theory as well as explaining relativity phenomena. Additionally, Dr. Little shows how the Theory of Elementary Waves gives rise to the macroscopic - that is - electrical phenomena (electricity and magnetism) and mechanics.
