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.

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!

Pseudo science posing as actual science

The author embraces actual science when it supports her position but readily dismisses mountains of experimental evidence and the huge volume of work done by some of the most brilliant minds over the past century. Einstein's general relativity and his explanation of the photoelectric effect which won him the Nobel Prize are wrong. Quantum mechanics is wrong. Modern particle physics is wrong. Or, perhaps, this author is.

Mind bending science

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

Great book, but better to be read than listened to

I found this book incredibly interesting and paradigm-shifting, but I struggled to hang on to the audio book. There is a lot of pretty heavy scientific and technical information that I personally would have absorbed and more easily understood had I been reading it.

On a purely superficial level, I found the author's incessant vocal fry at the end of almost every sentence hard to listen to. And if it bothers you when people midpronounce the word "nuclear" like George W. Bush ("nu-cue-ler"), this reading will drive you nuts, as the word pops up and is mispronounced every few minutes. Alas, another reason I find the book better than the audio book.

Good material needs a good narrator

Lynne has done some good research and compilation of important information; the only problem is her odd intonations and pretentious sounding manner of overemphasizing words and ending sentences with the tone of a question. Her narration is very distracting and it would have been more effective to use a professional narrator who would do the words justice. I don’t usually comment on someone’s manner of speaking or overuse of certain words (she uses the word nevertheless every other paragraph), but it really deterred me from absorbing the interesting content of the book.

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.

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!!
