Summary

Everyone is still talking about the movie What the Bleep Do We Know!? Now comes the audio edition of the book based on the mind-boggling movie that grossed $11 million in the U.S. alone. As the movie did, this book compels listeners to ask themselves Great Questions that will recreate their lives as they know them.

With the help of 14 leading quantum physicists, scientists, and spiritual thinkers, this book guides readers on a course from the scientific to the spiritual, and from the universal to the deeply personal. Along the way, it asks such questions as: Are we seeing the world as it really is?What are thoughts made of? What is the relationship between our thoughts and our world? Are we biologically addicted to certain emotions? How can I create my day every day?

What the Bleep answers this question and others through an innovative new approach to self-help and spirituality that's far different - and more exciting - than anything else you've heard. More than 20 short, focused, interactive chapters take listeners on a journey that will integrate the answers to these Great Questions into every aspect of their lives.

Critic reviews

"Anyone considering the nature of consciousness, intelligence, reality, or attitude adjustment will find this packed with insights and lively discussion, which is surprisingly easy to access considering the weight of the matters under review." (Midwest Book Review)

Mind blowing

For those who like to ask questions and are always curious about life this book is a real eye opening experience into the deeper meanings behind what life is and keeps you intrigued , once you have listened to just a small part of this you will never look at your life in the same way .... I have seen parts of the movie and am now deffinatley going to invest my time in watching it all now , the concepts are well explained yet if I'm honest will take a few listens to sink in as you are bombarded , in a good way of course , I have and would continue to recommend this book to others whether of an open mind or not , as this will certainly open anyone's mind

Attacking straw men

I'll admit it, I couldn't finish this book and didn't even come close. I made it halfway into chapter 3 before I had enough of the self-flattery and the nonsense attack on scientist straw men that the authors seemingly sees everywhere but I personally never have come across once. From what I could bear to read, it seems all scientists view people exclusively as 'machines' and ignoring all other aspects of the human existence. The authors even made a link between the inquisitions burning and the scientist, somehow accusing the scientist of taking control over the narrative of human understanding. I just found the critique uneducated, meaningless and without respect for the people who has been on the fronline of creating our modern world. In the beginning of the book the authors claimed they were surprised by some attacks on the film the book is based on from the scientific community. That they were surprised by this is probably the biggest testimony to how ignorant this authors are.

What a waste of time and money, but if you like stuff like The Secret this book surely will fit your needs.

Not the movie

Any additional comments?

Though I really like the movie and have seen it several times, I found this book to be disorganized and boring.

Wonderful

Great summary of how the latest science is merging with the most ancient religious thought. If everyone would listen to this with an open mind our world would be a better place.

Its a good followup to and about the movie.

Granted, not a whole lot new, but stuff that went on in the creation of the movie and how they went down the process of making the movie, even using some of their own techniques. If you are into it, and you liked "The Secret" and this Movie, then get the book and have fun listening. The technical underneath it all is still in there. And even most in science don't know what to make of this new understanding of life and what this book touches on. And if you are indeed into "it," you will want to have listened to this. No one can tell you what you can get out of it but you. If you haven't seen the movie, you have to first of course, before this book, or you may be lost. Do both. If you already get "it" get this too.

Fantastic content, terrible reader

What would have made What the Bleep Do We Know better?

a different reader. The person chosen is totally unsuited to the content of the book

What was one of the most memorable moments of What the Bleep Do We Know?

the experiment of labeling bottles of water then freezing them. Amazing outcome.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

she sounded bored and not very interested in the content which is so exciting. Completely the wrong voice for this book and really spoiled the whole thing

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The content is fascinating

Any additional comments?

don't get bored, older women to read scientific books

Not Quite What I Expected.

I remembered seeing a part of the movie awhile back and how it seemed interesting, in an after school special sort of way. It was similar to The Secret, but not was well organized. I felt sometimes like it was 3 people throwing out random opinions and platitudes. There is some good information within, once you can sift through it all. It didn't hold my attention as many books do. I actually stopped halfway and listened to an entire other book before returning.

Mostly Just Boring

This book is mostly a collection of Post-It quotes with some rather thin connecting narrative. In themselves the quotes are interesting and can lead the mind down some great tangents, but the same material is available in better form elsewhere, like in self-help books and better popular science like Hawking and Sagan. The authors admit that the juxtapositions are somewhat random, and I find it very difficult to follow their train of thought, if in fact there one.

Most troubling to me are the omissions -- while they are almost totally negative toward Christianity and almost totally positive toward Eastern religions, they ignore Judaism and Islam, and they quote major Christian thinkers like Tillich and Aquinas without attribution. They reference quantum theory repeatedly (and their point seems to be cross-disciplinary fertilization), but they seem unaware of the existence of Paul Dirac, the physicist who provided much of the theoretical underpinning of such quantum concepts as black holes, string theory, and antimatter. Winner of the Nobel Prize in 1933 (shared with Schrodinger, who is referenced repeatedly), Dirac's method involved the attempt to reconcile classical physics, general relativity, and observation of sub-atomic particles. Such glaring holes create a sense that the authors really have no idea what they are talking about.

Yes, there are major thought shifts going on right now and many fundamental assertions are being challenged. This happens every few hundred years, and that's what makes history so interesting. But understanding how people in other times and places think takes much more than a few insights, and reductionism is trivialization.

The greatest challenge of our age is opening our minds to these thought shifts while remaining passionately committed to truth. Without this commitment, we are subject to the political manipulation of alternative facts and fake news, all delivered in breathless Gee Whiz!!! pronouncements. Eventually I decided that this book just isn't worth my time.

We are a part of something wonderful

What did you love best about What the Bleep Do We Know?

The movie that this book is a supplement for was absolutely great. We are all part of a Universe that is acting on behalf of our best interests.

What other book might you compare What the Bleep Do We Know to and why?

If you liked reading The Miracle Morning, Gabrielle Bernstein or Martha Beck you will like this book. If you watched Tom Shadyac's I am - then this is for you.
