Yes yes yes!

Ever wondered if plants feel empathy? Or why children seem to be plugged into something "beyond" but then lose it as they grow up? Or whether a rat would remember how to perform a trick even after almost all of its brain had been burned away by a curling iron?

Or maybe you know a tiny bit about this whole quantum physics business, but really not much more than the fact that somewhere out there is a cat in a box who is somehow both dead and alive and a bunch of scientists who think this is a really big deal.

Read this book. Either you know nothing about the world we live in, and your eyes will be opened, or it will scientifically confirm everything you've ever suspected. Either way, holy shit. Lynne McTaggart has done the human race a great service by compiling all this research into one very readable volume.

(My only complaint: the author actually does a wonderful job of reading her own book. But. I cannot stand her pronunciation of the word "nuclear," which comes up somewhat frequently. I don't get it!! NOO-klee-urr. What is so hard for people about the second syllable of that word?)

Great book; more data than the layman needs.

Great book, but more data than this reader needed. I understand the importance of this for the credibility of the book, but maybe appendices would improve the readability.

Mind bending science

Mind bending science recounted by a natural story teller. A lovely link between science and philosophy. Loved it!

Self-important pseudo-scientific insanity

The author completely misunderstands many of the scientific concepts discussed in the book, and therefore makes unfounded, indefensible, and utterly unscientific claims. Her caricature of neo-darwinism for instance is ridiculous. A scientific theory does not comment on the “randomness” or “pointlessness” of life. It does not claim that your purpose as an individual is only to survive and reproduce. These are the authors own subjective extrapolations of the theory of evolution. This book is just terrible.

mind blowing

This book was absolutely mind blowing. and will most likely prove to be a pivotal point in my life. I have been searching for evidence to backup my strong feelings.

Complete garbage

There is no rigor in the analysis and too often no data to support the claims. I would like for this to be true. It's an interesting idea. Poorly supporting the points destroys credibility

A phenomenon!

Lynn McTaggart has created a catalog of the life altering, no reality altering science of today! It will take a massive awakening on the public's part to bring this information to the forefront of science and technology. We need to utilize this information now not 150 years from now! Thank you Ms. McTaggart!!

Bad narration

The author wrote a good book and I wish she stopped there and left the narration to professionals and information given would’ve made even more impact I think. It was a bad decision, she shouldn’t have narrated..

Outstanding work!

I would like to preface that I am not too familiar with biology of any means or scientific background. I am a normal person trying to learn about this material. The author presents the information and findings in such a way that I did not struggle to understand. I have read many other books on this subject and had a very difficult time getting through them mostly due to the medical and scientific terminology and had to start mini studies on the side to understand the words being used, let alone the context. I highly recommend this book to anyone even if you have zero interest in the biofield/field. It is exciting and sheds light on so many mysteries as to their origin and quite possibly a full explanation through science of what is really going on that validates so much! I feel privileged to have a glimpse in this world and to come so close to these amazing researchers and scientists. Cheers!

Awesome book

Well researched. Credible info on zero point field and it's revolutionary implications. Must read for anyone interested in the zero point field.
