Great book but an extremely hard read for me, took me forever I found myself often having to reread full chapters. The physics boggles your mind but the material can be pretty textbookish. Not that that is bad but I needed a guide for dummies. Would highly recommend this for anyone with a background in physics, and for lay folk who have the desire, patience and a good chunk of time

"The Spiritual Universe" is one of the books in the secondary bibliography of my free ebook on comparative mysticism. "The greatest achievement in life" at suprarational.org/gail2012.pdf has been reviewed on Goodreads.

Tough read, concept wise, considering I'm not a physicist but great information, some real world applications for ethereal concepts. Loved it, definitely was not the same person I was at the beginning of the book as I ended up after reading it. :)

Another great book from the mind of Fred Alan Wolfe. This I grabbed as soon as it came out. His vision of spirit, Soul, Matter, and Self made great sense to me and resonated with my own. His analysis is articulate and deep.
