Generally a very good introduction, slightly disappointed in the fragmentary content at the end of the book about abnormal states if consciousness.

A good overview of the field organised by dominant themes.

It took me a long time to slog all the way through this. After all, it really is a college textbook more than anything else. However, even years later I find myself recalling things from it and have a real appreciation both for the author's writing and the subject itself. I do occasionally go back and read small sections.

This breaks down so many important concepts of quantum physics into easily digestible snippets. I definitely recommend as a starting point and reference for anyone interested in quantum theory. The pictures are a nice add but some of them do not really add to the understanding of the theory and I think some of them could have been a little more clear in what was trying to be shown
