Greg Kuhn’s book “Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail” could easily be called “Quantum Physics for Dummies”. Yes, I’m a dummy when it comes to understanding quantum physics, and Kuhn gives the best treatment I’ve read yet of explaining this complex topic in simple language. More importantly, he shows how quantum principles can be used to improve our lives. “This is a self-help book about using quantum physics to achieve your dreams and goals,” he says in the introduction, and he delivers on that promise.
Quantum physics is a totally different way to look at reality than what most of us were taught. “The science of the second scientific revolution shows us that the outside world is created by one’s inside world, not the other way around,” Kuhn writes. “Your internal energy creates the material world outside of you. Embracing this paradigm, as weird as it may sound to you right now, is as logical a scientific ‘next step’ for humanity as embracing the Earth’s revolution around the sun was for a person in the 17th century.” I like how Kuhn lays the ground work early in the book by explaining what quantum physics is and how it differs from traditional science.
The best parts of the book, though, are where the author takes this quantum understanding and shows how we can apply it to everyday life. I’ve long been a proponent of the benefits of positive thinking. Kuhn tells us why positive thinking works. It is all related to quantum principles. “As quantum physics shows us, by looking for ways to feel as good as possible about people, places, things, and circumstances in your life, you are creating even more good in your life by telling yourself the best story possible,” he writes.
One of my top five books last year was Joe Dispenza’s “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself”. Kuhn’s book is a worthy companion to Dispenza’s work. In fact if you are new to the concepts of quantum physics I recommend reading “Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail” first. It’s like going to quantum elementary school, Dispenza’s book is high school, and authors like Deepak Chopra are college level. It is a great book to read in taking the initial steps of understanding a different, life enhancing view of reality.
I was given a complementary copy of this book for review purposes. I was not financially compensated for this post. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
