"CosMos" is co-authored by two explorers who combine almost a century of seeking to understand not only how the world is as it is, but why. Philosopher Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D., and healer and scientist Jude Currivan, Ph.D., offer a revisioned view of the world that is no longer fragmented, but is at last, whole. Theirs is a perception of a meaningful and co-creative world that is exquisitely tuned to be "as simple as it can be" for consciousness to explore itself. In these momentous times, the vision shared in "CosMos" invites us to open our hearts and minds to remember who we really are and to take our places as conscious co-creators of our realities and of our evolving cosmic destiny.

The beginning of CosMos was actually quite good and it explores some fairly cutting-edge science. It shows that physical reality -- space, time, matter and energy -- are comprised of information and that consciousness forms the bedrock of reality. It correctly identifies entropy and information as being one and the same thing. So many popular science books present a very confused and erroneous treatment of entropy. CosMos points out that Boltzmann's equation for entropy is the same as Shannon's equation for information -- entropy is simply information multiplied by Boltzmann's constant.
CosMos touches on the fractal nature of space and time with a very brief discussion of Laurent Nottale's work on scale relativity. I wish the authors would have spent much more time on this, because I believe this could hold the key for unifying GR and quantum physics.
There is a fairly comprehensive treatment of cellular biology and evidence of psi phenomenon. I think the authors could have expanded this into a hypothetical explanation of consciousness, but they stopped short of doing that.
I found a few minor inaccuracies here and there, but nothing worth mentioning in this review. There was one very irritating thing about the Kindle version of this book: Words were broken up quite frequently, which made the book difficult to read. For example, a word like "fortunate" would appear with a space in the middle like this: "fort unate". This didn't happen only a few times, but several times on every page.
The part I found most objectionable was the one on "harmonizing" with the environment, including physical alignments with planets and the center of the galaxy. These alignments supposedly have something to do with astrology and the "Shift" that occurred in December, 2012 when the Sun aligned with the Earth's orbit and center of our galaxy. Fine, but at least provide some hypothetical rationale why that alignment should matter.
I gave CosMos a rather mixed review because parts of it were scientifically spot on while the later parts incorporated a New Age belief system with very little to back it up. Appeals to ancient religious beliefs, such as shamanism, are worthless in my opinion.
The final chapters that delved into social patterns were worthwhile from the standpoint that they served as a warning that humanity is standing on the precipice of destruction and we had better get or act together -- and soon. Biologist are warning that the Earth is undergoing its seventh mass extinction, and our collective ignorance and greed are causing it. But I'm not convinced that we're going to experience a consciousness shift and become enlightened before that happens; in fact, it seems like we're pretty much heading in the opposite direction.
I'd give CosMos a partial thumbs up, but I recommend reading only the first half carefully and skimming over the second half.

I believe it is one of the most important books of this century. It is must reading in my opinion.
