It's hard to easily categorize WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW? DISCOVERING THE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES FOR ALTERING YOUR EVERYDAY REALITY: at once a science book and a self-help and spiritual guide, and based on a movie as well, it tackles the questions of uncertainty, the nature of reality, and how physical, mental and spiritual forces interact in shaping human reality. Don't expect any easy answers here: WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW is an overview of science and spiritual questions which sets out what is known about each, and points the reader in different directions where the outer limits of science and psyche embrace. Any considering the nature of consciousness, intelligence, reality, or attitude adjustment will find this packed with insights and lively discussion which is surprisingly easy to access considering the weight of the matters under review.(Midwest Book Review) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I found the book to be a nice way to revisit many of the concepts in the movie, and to do so on my own timeline. I love it because it prompted so many "put down the book and think" moments.
I was worried I'd find it boring because I HAVE seen the movie so many times, but that wasn't the case. There is new (or at least extended) material here to enrich your understanding. It's presented in a readable fashion (not a huge fan of the split-page narratives, myself), and features most or all of the folks from the movie.
You can feel from the style of writing that the authors/directors of What the Bleep developed personal relationships with their audience. The book has a very personal feel for that reason, and might serve as a "blankie" for folks who can't get enough of the Bleep and its characters.
Good job people.
Here is a sample of the questions:
1. What paradigm governs your reality?
2. What is the predominant world paradigm?
3. Is the Bible a Paradigm?
4. What is your new paradigm?
5. Have you hijacked your own search for the truth?
6. What are the dogmas in your own life?
7. What is the difference between science and religion?
If you don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty questions, the book is still worth reading if you just need a basic introduction into various mysteries and debates on a host of subjects.
1. Science and religion
2. Sight and perception
3. Quantum physics
5. Mind over matter
In short: easy and fun to read book, but exhausting to think about. As such the authors have done the relatively 'easy’ part – compiling the information. The reader does the hard part – understanding it.

As first outlined in the film, the book concludes, "The bottom line, at least as far as science has gone up till now, is this: We create the world we perceive. When I open my eyes and look around, it is not 'the world' that I see, but the world my human sensory equipment is able to see, the world my belief system allows me to see, and the world that my emotions care about seeing or not seeing."
I cited this book and movie in a foundation chapter dealing with quantum physics and reality in my book Growing @ the Speed of Change: Your Inspir-actional How-To Guide For Leading Yourself and Others through Constant Change
