Having been concerned with science and technology on a day-to-day basis for well over half a century I was sceptical - in the light of its title - about this book. Having said that, the title aroused in me a strong sense of scientific curiosity about how quantum theory could conceivably lead to weight loss, so I got a copy. I expected to be disappointed. But I was not. I liked it. The first part of the book provides a light-hearted and amusing exposition of various aspects of quantum theory. Enjoyable though I found it to read thus far, the tension built up as to how on Earth could the author map the "mini domain" of quantum physics across to the "macro domain" of Newtonian physical sciences. This was obviously impossible as such, in the sense that - for example - exposing one's body to a field of hadrons or whatever can lead only to weight loss of the terminal kind. However, the book did not go on to relate quantum theory and weight control in a direct mapping sense. Instead, in the second part of the book the author uses various, generally counter-intuitive principles that apply in the quantum domain to suggest the employment of various weight control actions or approaches that are in some sense analogues of the quantum principles. In this way, this very well crafted book encourages the reader to go along with weight control actions ("the medicine") by relating them in a pleasing sense to the quantum principles ("the spoonful of sugar") rather than by baldly asserting actions that should be taken. Buy it and see!

This book is not about a new diet. It's something to complement your existing healthy diet. Very well written , interesting and with humour. It's leans towards the spiritual side and gives lots of advice as how to maintain a healthy body together with a healthy mind. Worth buying it. I enjoyed reading it and gained a lot (except unwanted weight!).

As a science undergraduate years ago, I studied quantum mechanics, but didn't' really understand it (mainly due to the professor talking over our heads). Written in an easy to understand way using logical steps.

Great book. Really helps change your perspective on weight loss and goal achievemt in general.

If you get s chance read his book or listen to the audio book How Quantum Physicist Build New Beliefs. It is a totally unique way of reprogramming the subconscious mind which actually works!

This book has a lot of important information which applies to changing all areas of your life, not just weightIoss. It gives good explanation and good tools. However, if you want to read a more clear book without all the science talk I recommend a book by Shad Helmstetter called 'What to say when you talk to yourself.' It's all about self-talk, an excellent practical tool for changing all areas of your life. I feel Gregory Kuhn is often alluding to Self-talk without calling it that. I like Gregory Kuhns scientific perspective also though and how he tells us that we are all storytellers and to change our lives we need to stop telling ourselves the bad stories we tell ourselves and replace them with good stories, which then creates our beliefs and ultimately creates our realities. His information on how to silence mental chatter is very good also. The author Frank Kinslow has groundbreaking information on this topic also. Overall an excellent read with an interesting perspective.

It's taken me a while to finish this book, because it has to be said it's quite lengthy (also I had a problem with my lens prescription, which made reading difficult). However, having now finished it, I can definitely say I'm glad I did.

If you're trying to lose weight, maybe have been for many years, this book will definitely help. In fact, many of the principles outlined could equally well be applied to other health issues, like stopping smoking.

Here's what you won't have to do if you read and apply the techniques given here: obsessively count calories (or carbs, or whatever); spend hours in the local gym trying to burn off calories; feel guilty because you've eaten something naughty or failed to keep up the prescribed exercise regime. But you'll still lose weight, and chances are you'll find it never comes back again. How's that for a weight loss bargain?

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to lose weight, the more the merrier.
