Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate
by Brian Greene, 1999, W.W. Norton & Company
An extremely readable, understandable book which explains clearly, using analogies, humor, and layman's terms, the principles of relativity and quantum mechanics. Greene then details a cutting-edge Unified Field theory, String theory, which may link the discrepancies between Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum physics, and which predicts the existence of multiple dimensions. By reading this book, I was able to finally 'get' a number of complex principles and theories which had previously eluded me. Even if you're not interested in String Theory, this book is well worth reading for its excellent explanations of Einsteins's theories of relativity, observations and theories in quantum physics , and much more.
by Richard Gerber, M.D., 1999, Bear & Company
An extensive compilation of alternative and 'subtle energy' healing modalities, preceded by an excellent discussion of scientific evidence for the existence of the subtle energy body, and a compelling, understandable theory of the physics framework within which subtle energies could exist. This book covers a lot of ground...a must-read for anyone interested in subtle-energy healing.
