Umm. I find this book really interesting to read, its words on consciousness, physics with Buddhism...although while going through it I find it difficult to get through few terms but i try to manage to read the book completely and definitely i will read that again to get proper understanding!!

Recommends it for: those interested in science and consciousness studies.
B. Alan Wallace is a leader in the convergence of science (specifially physics) and Buddhism. Terribly prolific, this book is concise and very intreresting. At times, however, he seems too eager to accept pretty far-out claims I feel go beyond most legitamate interpretations of the 'facts.'
