"In the ambitiously titled A Brief History of Everything, Wilber continues his search for the primary patterns that manifest in all realms of existence. Like Hegel in the West and Aurobindo in the East, Wilber is a thinker in the grand systematic tradition, an intellectual adventurer concerned with nothing less than the whole course of evolution, life's ultimate trajectory—in a word, everything. . . . Combining spiritual sensitivity with enormous intellectual understanding and a style of elegance and clarity, A Brief History of Everything is a clarion call for seeing the world as a whole, much at odds with the depressing reductionism of trendy Foucault-derivative academic philosophy."—San Francisco Chronicle

He illustrates a lot of his concepts with examples from history along the way which helps make this less of a dry academic treatise and more of an enjoyable read. I also liked that he explains the varying conflicts of different schools of science, religion, philosophy, politics, ecology, etc., very clearly and simply inside the Integral framework. This made a whole lot more sense than any history course I ever took.
Overall, this left me feeling like I understood the gist of Wilber's Integral Theory well enough to go back to explore his many other publications or leave them be while I took the time to more deeply integrate what I had read. By this, I mean there's just enough explanation to make sense of things without feeling too lost (at least having some prior exposure to Eastern spirituality, philosophy, psychology, etc.).
Buddhists, Taoist, Unitarians, Gnostic Christians, Spiritualists, Hindus, Sufis, Kabbalahists (more so you guys with the K than the Q) and a whole host of others will greatly appreciate Ken's years of research and practice that have culminated in this work. In short, READ THIS BOOK!
