Particle physics is a science that few of us really understand. Indeed, it can be an intimidating, confusing study. Or it can be, as it is in The Dancing Wu Li Masters, a comprehensible, awe-inspiring world of absolute wonder and enchantment. In beautifully clear, often poetic language, with no mathematical equations, Gary Zukav presents this carefully abridged edition of his bestseller to open our minds to ideas that embrace the nature of the universe, and to help us gain intellectual and spiritual access to this often-baffling world.
With the skill of a Zen master -- who, rather than tell us about a subject leads us to understand the experience of it -- Mr. Zukav discusses the essence of physics with the sense of fascination and inspiration we all feel when we look at the vastness of our universe. He probes its simplicity and its magic -- the universal dance of everything from stars and immense galaxies to invisible, sub-atomic particles -- and leads us to see and appreciate all of it with new eyes.
