Not as left field as the tittle implies.,
This review is from: The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism: 25th Anniversary Edition (Paperback)
Jacob Bronowski, "The Ascent of Man", would turn me over in my grave if he found out that I was reading such books as this. There are too many quasi science quasi religion books that want to take some principle and reinterpret it to be a New age truth or prove the some old blind philosopher beat us too it for example (The Seat of the Soul.) Dr. Capra is drawing parallels in two fields and not trying to say "see I told you so". He takes the time and pages to describe the science and also does a pretty good job of distilling complex religions down to single chapters. I leave it up to Dr. Capra and you to determine if there really is any parallel. If you are a Gary Zukav sort of person this book will not help you at all.
