So yes, strongly recommended for if you are looking for something to make you think But not as a source of gospel truth.
The book is mainly based on analogies between scientific principles and laws and everyday life And they are interesting analogies But they have all the problems of arguing from analogy some of the analogies are weak or even non existent, and if you strain an analogy too far you re unlikely to come to truth Particularly on the everyday life side I felt that it was over simplistic, with lots of generalisations made to fit the analogy, and those generalisations would neither describe my life nor the lives of those I know.
What it claims to be deep insights from scientific rules sometimes felt to me just to be tenuous analogies between cliches and science.
And it got old quickly saying things like It s not my fault It s the laws of the universe That just doesn t work when all you have is an analogy.
Caveats aside, though, it was fun to read, it was interesting, the science side had some particularly clear explanations, and I would strongly recommend it.
Nearly half through, skipped a few pages of stats but enjoying this book a lot If it remains like this I m happy Lots of new ways of seeing the stuff of life a quantum light.

This is an amusing attempt to align the laws of physics to the everyday common currency of existence In order to do this the author has to stretch the analogies almost to breaking point, but his ingenuity is pleasing Not a life changing experience, but a good read, nevertheless.
Just fine Interesting look at real world applications for quantum theory.
Nice explainations of quantum theory as well.
Thought provoking and entertaining.
Interesting take on the real world and the quantum one.
More imagination than science.
Great read, easy to understand and great thought provoking book I am really enjoying it.
