In making the argument, Russell accurately draws on a wide range of ideas and insights from physics, psychology, Western philosophy, and worldwide spiritual traditions, and thus effectively and beautifully ties many strands of knowledge together. A key part of the argument is to see consciousness and light as two sides of the same coin, and I believe that Russell makes a fairly compelling case for this view.
The book is fairly short and is crafted with great clarity and conciseness, with nice elements of autobiography inserted at appropriate points, and can thus be read quickly and enjoyably (I finished it easily in two days). But, again, Russell has painlessly packed a lot into the book, and his thesis is compelling and fundamentally important, so this is a book worth re-reading, perhaps more than once.
Very highly recommended for anyone with an inclination towards intellectual and (especially) spiritual growth, with just one key caveat: the conciseness of the book means that Russell can't spell everything out in great detail, so the book will work best for readers who are already at least passingly familiar with wide range of ideas which are drawn upon.
His writing style is easy to follow- not overly layered with either science or religious dogma, and allows the reader to follow his own journey from a strict scientist, bordering on atheism, to someone who believes in the external nature of consciousness, and the place role that consciousness plays in our existence.
It is easy to say that "God" is in everything...or that our physical reality contains elements of external influence, but Russell makes both points in a sense of unity, that is graceful, poetic, and yet rife with new physics theory.
It is not meant to be the "Theory of Everything"- but rather an introduction to a far wider exploration into the nature of existence.
