Quantum physics is an astounding (and mind-boggling) field of science, but can you actually use it to change your life? Absolutely yes, says Dr. Quantum. On A User's Guide to Your Universe, Dr. Quantum, who goes by day as mild-mannered physicist Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, teaches that anyone can understand quantum physics. What's more, it is the most useful, immediate, and relevant kind of science you can learn to profoundly affect your day-to-day life.
Your Mind is a Quantum Engine. Are You Ready to Fire It Up?
The art of "applied quantum physics" is learning how to harness the power of consciousness as we move through space and time. At the heart of quantum theory lies an astonishing (and scientifically proven) truth: that the very act of observing events in your life can alter their outcome. Our minds may not be just along for the ride in an impersonal universe, suggests Dr. Wolf. Instead, we can define the fabric of reality at a fundamental level with the choices we make, the things we choose to see or not see, and most importantly, our intentions in each moment.
Prepare to Unlock Your Own Quantum Superpowers.
How does the energy of your emotions change the physical state of your body? Can we actually perceive parallel universes? Is time travel possible for you at this very moment? Dr. Wolf takes you outside the walls of the laboratory, through the pages of history, and into the land of dreams, alchemy, and enchantment. With him, you will follow in the footsteps of such physics giants as Planck, Heisenberg, and Einstein, as you learn to reframe your perceptions of "ordinary" reality. Ultimately, you will learn to use the "Technology of God", harnessing the power of your mind to become an active co-creator of the universe.

Dr. Wolf certainly knows his subject and that subject is fascinating. While the assembly of information and the progression of the talk is good the presentation is poor.
It would seem that Dr. Wolf is attempting to teach Quantum Physics to Grade Schoolers. The over acting and often childish commentary is distracting. It would have been better if Dr. Wolf had delivered his talk in a more serious way while keeping an element of humour where appropriate.
The Dr. is a wierd one. I was interested in finding out what Quantum Physics was and some theory. Next thing I know he is talking about sex and shamans! If you've seen this guy and you can stomach listening to him talk about how Noi Noi made him horney, it will be worth it to hear how it all ties together. The first half is almost all Quantum Mechanics. And through it all he makes it interesting.
A really rotten book, It belongs with Scientoloy and other pseudo-scientific garbage. You obviously won;t post this.
Easy listen....lively narrated....the book flowed well....It really resonated with my own thoughts....I recommend this book to anyone interested in the world of quantum physics
a very animated narration. a bit long winded at times but breaks things down in a comprehensive way that anyone can understand. I feel like Mr wolf might have a Salvatori problem lol trying to tell a story with a mouth full of saliva is distracting.
over all, totally worth it and I will probably listen to parts of it again.
My interests run to psychology, popular science, history, world literature, and occasionally something fun like Jasper Fforde. It seems like the only free time I have for reading these days is when I'm in the car so I am extremely grateful for audio books. I started off reading just the contemporary stuff that I was determined not to clutter up my already stuffed bookcases with. And now audio is probably 90% of my "reading" matter.
Such a disappointment. I was really looking forward to an accessible book about physics and the universe. But Mr. Wolf's idea of explaining something is simply to state the same thing again, only louder.
I love the topic and the information. I finally had to just stop listening to it because his high pitched voice and irritating presentation style wore me out. I appreciate enthusiasm and I definitely enjoy humor in heavy topics, but Fred goes so far over the top with both that I couldn't stand to listen to him.
The author doesn't really read text, but more like using notes on what to cover. His presentation style is suitable for 6-year old kids but the subject matter is for people over 15 years old. He should adjust his presentation style to suit his intended audience. The information presented was ok, but it made me cringe the way he presented it.
I am a fan of Dr. Wolfs but his constant rambling and role playing is just too annoying, I would cringe every time he would digress into these, complete distraction and unnecessary :-(
This audio book was alright. Unfortunately, he liked to imitate other accents which was okay once in awhile but did become tiresome. Other then that, the book was interesting.
