Here is a concise, comprehensive overview of Wilber's revolutionary thought and its application in today's world. In A Theory of Everything, Wilber uses clear, nontechnical language to present complex, cutting-edge theories that integrate the realms of body, mind, soul, and spirit. He then demonstrates how these theories and models can be applied to real-world problems in areas such as politics, medicine, business, education, and the environment. Wilber also discusses daily practices that readers take up in order to apply this integrative vision to their own everyday lives.

If the author quotes another one of his works one more time as a reference... This book is boring and dry. The reader is flat and uninteresting. It sounds like an academic lecture and tries to scan like an academic work with lots of references. And given nearly all the references are to the author's other works or to works the author claims to have influenced - then it just ends up sounding like bragging, If there is an actual IDEA in this book, then our dear self important writer takes so long to get to the actual point that I have... Ah wait - yes of course - DIED - death of ego - enlightenment - is this what he tries to achieve? Bore the listener to death and hope the ego drops away? I can't imagine what it must be like being this man's poor wife - or maybe "honey I have this idea" is the perfect way to get to sleep every night? Sorry - what is this book about again!
An incredibly fascinating discussion of the phenomena of the how human evolution. The author successfully attempts to make sense of the worlds diverse views on spirituality, politics and culture.
"Not written for the common people - Still great"
I will need to replay again to capture all the information. For the first time in self educating myself in integral visions and readings, this was a little rich. Still very informative and will need to replay to capture more. I think it was written for the academic, not so much for someone like me.
Ken Wilber a very knowledgeable person and introduced me to more knowledgeable people with this book.
Probably needs to be a doco...not a movie.
As someone who has studied integral thought for a decade, I found this short overview an excellent resource to remind me of the most critical aspects of the theory and will serve as a way to introduce others to integral thought.
I first read this book over five years ago and loved it. However it took revisiting ToE at this stage in my life to truly appreciate its brilliance.
"Interesting but not riveting"
The content reads like a text book. Very interesting stuff. Unfortunately, presented in a way that made it difficult to stay focused.
The narrator was quite good though.
