The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics

Book Review of "The Dancing Wu Li Masters" by Gary Zukav: Trip Hippie studies particle physics on acid, applies eastern philosophy, and writes about it while stoned in 1979. Well maybe a little better than that. There are some cosmic plilosophical statements and some interesting diagrams of 1970's neanderthals dealing with 4-d math. People compare it to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, but I think this one is a lot lonelier and less useful. It's a decent survey of the last 200 years of physics.
