Product description

Review

Jim Baggott has done a real service to the community of questing souls. He gives a lucid, thoughtful, and helpful account of one of this century s great conundrums. (Times Literary Supplement) "

Baggott has an entertaining style, with clever use of analogies and diagrams. The book s realist honesty shines like a beacon through the fog of contemporary mystical speculations. (New Scientist) "

Reading this book is like having an informal, intimate conversation with and informed thinker. Enthusiastically recommended... (Library Journal, starred review) "
