4.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Read, 23 July 2009
This review is from: The Holographic Universe (Paperback)
Just for arguments sake, look at all the the reviews from people who gave this book a one star rating (all three of them, at the time of writing). You'll notice that all of them have one thing in common. NONE OF THESE "CRITICS" FINISHED THE DAMN BOOK! So please disregard their comments.

This is an absolutely facsinating read and one which I truly recommend if you're looking for an alternative view on how reality is constructed. Some readers have slated this book for its paranormal content, but why? Paranormal activities do occur in everyday life, as archived throughout history in thousands upon thousands of individual accounts, so why scoff at such a notion?

That said; it is a shame that Talbot insists on sharing HIS somewhat far-fetched experiences throughout the latter half of this book. Despite my comments above about the paranormal, most people are lucky if they experience even one occurence in their entire life but the author seems to have, rather conveniently, experienced them all. After a while, you start to doubt his integrity in these instances, to the point where it almost undermines the theory he's trying to promote. For this alone, I had no choice but to give it 4 stars...

That was very useful to me, thank you :) Because I had read Chris Cade's recommendation of this book before I came on Amazon immediately to purchase it, but was surprised to see it didn't have a higher star rating. Now I know why and will continue to purchase. Thank you again.
