A physicist and psychologist have co-authored this work, in which they try to meld the two domains of knowledge to explain "reality."

This is not a light read. I started to read this book years ago -- and it's still on my "To Read" list. The sentences must be chewed on for awhile and then allowed time to digest - like a thick steak. So, it's not for everyone. Much like pickled pigs feet, it is an acquired taste. However, for what it lacks in entertainment, it makes up for in brillance. I don't want to read this book for its writing - but for its thoughts. The words are just a means to an end.

Physicist Henry Margenau and pyschologist Lawrence LeShan co-wrote this book, which is an expansion in many way of the themes that LeShan addressed earlier in Alternate Realities and The Medium, the Mystic, and the Physicist. Provocative ideas well worth examination.
