Read from October 12 to 31, 2011

Overall, a very interesting perspective on scientific vs. mystic thought, and makes me want to read 'The Dancing Wu Li Masters' or another perspective on quantum mechanics vs. Eastern mysticism.

* The readability and cohesion of the comparisons were tough to follow at rimes.
* The second part of the book was a helpful beginner's overview of eastern mysticism
* While the macro-organization of the book is cohesive, the conclusions seem to be either difficult to spot or thinly developed within some sections.
* The afterward (4th Ed.) goes a long way in tying giving the book a real sense of cohesion that seemed missing within the original edition.
