The more you learn about quantum physics, the more you wonder: who is really creating your reality? Fear not, Dr. Quantum, superhero of spiritual science, is here to help you meet the real creator: You! Join this champion of modern thought (sometimes known by his alter ego, Dr. Fred Alan Wolf) on a quest for truth through the strange reality of quantum physics. Listeners will discover how we participate in the manifestation of each moment, why the universe only seems to be beyond our ability to control, and how we can use the principles of cutting-edge science to truly take charge of our lives. On this four-part journey into understanding, Dr. Quantum will unravel such mysteries as:
Whether he's rescuing listeners from confusion about subatomic subtleties or breaking down the barriers between science and spirit, Dr. Wolf sets the standard for bringing quantum physics down to earth and into our lives.

His book was not what I expected. I had exposure to him in the "What the bleep do we know" movie, and thought he was a circus act. He does have a very bizarre style, but that is just him. Its real. He is actually very cogent and informative surrounding a very difficult topic to understand for us lay-people. It took a while to get used to his voice, but it was worth the time listening. I learned more than I expected and decided to get his other works. Fred has more to contribute to our knowledge base than just quantum physics.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Fred A. Wolf aka Dr. Quantum during a conference held at Simon Fraser University called, "The Bleep Conference". Fred makes Quantum Physics seem like childs play. Clear, concise examples that are relative to everyday life make learning QP fun and enlightening. I know that anyone even slightly interested in physics will find Fred's narrative fun and applicable to our own lives in all ways. Very enjoyable! Absolutely a must hear!
How can anything be objective when the observer is part of the system he is observing? At best only a model can be offered. You can either buy into it, or not. As for religion and science; well, they both have their own priests, don't they? And yet, are they not ultimately trying to model the same thing? Is this not one of the things that thing that baffled the quantum scientists so much... Looking down into the very fabric of reality they "saw" what the ancient Hindu writers explained? So then, some scientists ask, what is religion and what is science in relation to the data obtain at the quantum level? ("Tao of Physics" is a good example). If they (religion and science) are both trying to describe the ultimate reality; should they not at some point cross?
Wolf is always fun to listen to, and reminds me of one of my old physics professors.
It is a good listen.
I really enjoyed listening to Dr. Quantum discuss his ideas about soul, heaven and hell, how we create our reality, and what Quantum Physics has to do with it all. I discovered Dr. Quantum from the wonderful “What the Bleep Do We Know?” movie, and ever since then I have become interested in what he has to say (as well as what the other people in the movie have to say). I find him easy to understand and actually quite entertaining. I found myself laughing out loud at times. He really kept my attention throughout the entire presentation. In fact, I have listened to this audio book about 3 times now (I’ve only had it about a week), and I am taking notes! I am also researching some of the people and experiments that he mentions (i.e.: Benjamin Libet and his work on neural adequacy). I am considering purchasing his other audio presentation: A User’s Guide to Your Universe.
I had no prior knowledge of Quantum Physics until I watched the “What the Bleep” movie, so all this stuff is new to me. I am glad that I started my study of the mystery with Dr. Quantum as a guide.
Ok to download IF you realize that this is one person's view about human spirituality, and NOT actually about any of the qualities or scientific implications of quantum physics.
This book uses a quantum physics vocabulary (vocabulary, mind you, not actual scientist-endorsed interpretations or data) to make speculations about the soul, which is describes in terms of an imaginary elephant. It presents common misreadings of what real quantum physicists call "observation," equating a probabilistic science to a false determinism.
I am surprised Audible would advertise this on its front page.
Dr. Wolf is excellent. This is the second audiobook of his I've listened to and like the first, I've gone back and listened to certain chapters several times over.
Whether you agree with his philosophical theories or not, they are indeed though provoking.
I thoroughly enjoy listening to his voice and his sense of humor is wonderful. His audio's are incredibly entertaining and while listening you feel as if he is actually talking to "YOU."
You can also contact him personaly via his website. I sent him an email and by the next day I had a reply.
This is not a book about quantum physics though the author is a quantum physicist. It's a book about the implications of quantum physics for an understanding of the ultimate nature of reality. The author summarizes experimental results of both quantum physics and neuroscience in a light manner that skips technical discussions. In some cases, his interpretations of quantum physics theory and experimental results might well be contested by other quantum physicists. Dr. Quantum does not hold consensus views -- not that there really is consensus yet among physicists about its interpretation. So, if you're looking for deep understanding of quantum physics, look elsewhere. But I appreciated Dr. Quantum's key insights into the relationship of consciousness and reality. Very worth listening to. It's easy and somewhat enjoyable listening. I listened three times to really understand some of the key insights.
This was too informal. I was really hoping to learn about Quantum Physics. He talks some about that, but ends up talking about reincarnation. Although it is good to let go of desire, reincarnation is not biblical, and I won't subscribe to it.
He is a little zany, but it all fits together. We just need to remember to practice this in our lives. I feel that all life and all things are sacred and holy. A fun and informative audio book.
I was all set to like this. I had heard a very interesting interview with Fred Alan Wolf on Insights At the Edge so had high expectations for this audio recording. But for some reason Dr. Wolf seems to have the mistaken impression that he has to ham up his delivery to make it interesting or to live up to his "Dr Quantum" persona. So the delivery was painfully corny to start with but the most disappointing part was the fact that there wasn't much depth to the content. This audio might work for someone who has never been introduced to "New Thought"/ Eastern approaches to spirituality or to the places where those philosophies intersect with science, but it seemed to me that, even if that were the case, there are better introductions to those ideas to be found elsewhere.
