Publisher's Summary

Here is a concise, comprehensive overview of Wilber's revolutionary thought and its application in today's world. In A Theory of Everything, Wilber uses clear, nontechnical language to present complex, cutting-edge theories that integrate the realms of body, mind, soul, and spirit. He then demonstrates how these theories and models can be applied to real-world problems in areas such as politics, medicine, business, education, and the environment. Wilber also discusses daily practices that readers take up in order to apply this integrative vision to their own everyday lives.

Excellent resource.

As someone who has studied integral thought for a decade, I found this short overview an excellent resource to remind me of the most critical aspects of the theory and will serve as a way to introduce others to integral thought.

Great book

I first read this book over five years ago and loved it. However it took revisiting ToE at this stage in my life to truly appreciate its brilliance.

Interesting but not riveting

The content reads like a text book. Very interesting stuff. Unfortunately, presented in a way that made it difficult to stay focused.

The narrator was quite good though.

Not anything I would ever acquire if I have a choice

Nothing like its title implies. I would not use Theoty of Everything which implies Physics NOT Metaphysics

Not written for the common people - Still great

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I will need to replay again to capture all the information. For the first time in self educating myself in integral visions and readings, this was a little rich. Still very informative and will need to replay to capture more. I think it was written for the academic, not so much for someone like me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ken Wilber a very knowledgeable person and introduced me to more knowledgeable people with this book.

What three words best describe Fajer Al-Kaisi’s voice?

Just fine.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably needs to be a doco...not a movie.

Nauseating Pseudo-Science Set the Scene

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

In the brief amount of time I listened to it, it succeeds in completely mis-stating the second law of thermodynamics, and string theory, and proceeds to talk about those things as if they explain great mysteries. It is stunningly anti-intellectual, vapid, shallow, and makes me worry that integral management theory is based upon the same weak ideas, and it is integral management theory which I wished to learn more about. I just can't go further, as I have lost all respect for the author.

What could Ken Wilber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Ken Wilber could have spent more time actually learning about the science he misrepresents, and could have had actual scientists review his work. He didn't. That makes this work intellectually dishonest and self-serving drivel.

What three words best describe Fajer Al-Kaisi’s voice?

Good enough, really

What character would you cut from Theory of Everything?

I would have cut Jimmy McPseudoscience, as this radically underdeveloped character detracts from every part of the story he is in.

Any additional comments?

I want my money back, and I want a public apology from the author to all the people whose delusions he has fueled.

Pompous overbearing self-referencing dry & boring

If the author quotes another one of his works one more time as a reference... This book is boring and dry. The reader is flat and uninteresting. It sounds like an academic lecture and tries to scan like an academic work with lots of references. And given nearly all the references are to the author's other works or to works the author claims to have influenced - then it just ends up sounding like bragging, If there is an actual IDEA in this book, then our dear self important writer takes so long to get to the actual point that I have... Ah wait - yes of course - DIED - death of ego - enlightenment - is this what he tries to achieve? Bore the listener to death and hope the ego drops away? I can't imagine what it must be like being this man's poor wife - or maybe "honey I have this idea" is the perfect way to get to sleep every night? Sorry - what is this book about again!
