Product description

About the Author

Fritjof Capra, theoretical physicist, systems theorist, writer and lecturer, received his Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. He is the founder and president of the Elmwood Institute in Berkeley, CA, an international organization dedicated to nurturing new ecological visions and applying them to the solution of current social, economic and environmental problems.

From AudioFile

This is a work that defies categorization. It is a fascinating attempt to synthesize all of human knowledge and experience with Taoist religion. One could call it "Darwin and Einstein meet the Buddha." Michael Prichard's reading of this abridgment is adequate. His diction is excellent, and his pacing reminds this reviewer of a newsreel. While the narration is performed without emotion or variation, his pacing keeps this unique work from becoming monotonous. M.T.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
