Review

"Quantum Soup is a gourmet preparation of philosophical snaps and snails, sharks' fins and puppy dogs' tails to tickle the sophisticated palate and provoke happy, healthful belly laughs. Confucius say: 'Number One good recipe!'" - Joseph Campbell "Like sunlight, Chungliang Al Huang's delicate mix of wisdom and humor comes in discrete energy packets (quanta) but gives continuous pleasure and nourishment." - Fritjof Capra "Take the humor of Buddha, connecting with the universal soul you have Chungliang Al Huang and Quantum Soup!" - Virginia Satir "Quantum Soup is an elegant, wise and playful expression of Taoist and Zen Buddhist sensibilities in a Western setting - a philosophical entertainment with a collection of anecdotes, aphorisms and koan-like ruminations, all served up in appetizer portions." - Los Angeles Times "Take the pungence of hot and sour, the homeyness of chicken, the excitement of gespacho, the refreshment of vichyssoise - flamboyantly seasoned with loving humor and eternality and an empty bowl - ahhhh - 'Quantum Soup!'" - Ram Dass" --Quantum Soup!'" - Ram Dass"
