I think you have done a magnificent and extremely important job."--"Joseph Campbell"

Again, Great book, and recommended to anyone who has any interest at all in physics, the universe, math, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, or even history.
As for the cosmologist concepts underlying systematic meditation, yoga, Chinese traditional medicine, religious or artistic rituals, and other ancient, traditional practices of India, China, and Japan's highly educated culture, Capra keeps the same level of writing quality.
And, of course, the link between quantum-relativistic physics and Eastern mysticism is extremely responsible. Simply put, the book is a must!
