Well, I think I can say that I'm glad that I read this. It was a bit over my head and challenged me to think deeper than I normally do when I read. I went into the book thinking that I would most certainly agree with the Spirtuality side of the war, however, I found myself agreeing more with Leonard in the science camp. I found Deepak Chopra's views too extreme and unsupported by substance to grasp hold of. My personal worldviews would probably be a slightly augmented version of the science view, I believe that the science that we have found can still have originated from the hand of a creator, God.
