FROM SCIENCE TO GOD
The Mystery of Consciousness and the Meaning of Light
Comments from Readers
It is a pleasure to read Peter Russell's beautifully written book endorsing the transcendental view of life. Based on his own experiences as a mathematician and as a mystic he charts the route from materialism to meditation and has a convincing explanation of the meaning of such diverse items such as gravity, relativity, quantum theory, light and consciousness. And a new and satisfying interpretation of God.
Profoundly insightful from both a theoretical and personal perspective. It is a story of the development of the western thought on the one hand, and of a very thoughtful individuals personal struggles to reconcile his love and respect for science with his growing spiritual awakening on the other hand. Far more than most other books on the subject, From Science to God identifies a possible basis for a true reconciliation between science and spirituality.
The best book Peter Russell's ever written.
This will get through to the Harvard Business School types.
A modern hero's journey - a record of a
courageous traveler who has ventured where scientists aren't supposed
to go, who has gained great wisdom, and who has returned to share it.
This book will be invaluable to millions of individuals who are
seeking to harmonize intellect and intuition, science and spirit, in
their lives. Highly recommended.
You've done a terrific job
Truly engaging, accessible,
and a pleasure to read
deep and wide
lucid and juicy
As usual Peter Russell has brought the highly complex into the divinely
simple and helped us make the transtion from the dogma of the materialistic
view of nature to the illumination of the true nature of reality as the
consciousness we have called God.

What a lovely piece of work. It's deceptively simple, very elegant, very
The book is brilliant. Ive enjoyed this afternoon more than most days of my life. In your book you have created with words a mathematical equation that takes one literally to the state you mention.
A very clear and concise introduction to consciousness
The non-fiction equivalent of The Glass Bead Game
The first solid attempt to clearly identify the paradigm that is emerging--an integration of the scientific paradigm that is dominant in the world now and the spiritual traditions that are represented in paradigms dominant in the past. . . .
I predict that this book will spread like wildfire. For many of us it is a fulfillment of a dream we didn't know we had.
Fabulous, an elegant piece of work.
Simple, clear and concise
A sweet book, and so true
just the right size
-- and very easily digestible
It is one of the best modern portrayals, especially since you are very
honest and not trying to make up new jargon, or some complex model out of
You have shed 'light' on
the cosmos and our connection with it. It is a concise and clearly
written statement that answers the who, where, what and how of why.
Thanks for expressing what we've all wanted (and needed!) to hear for so
many thousands of years.
Your book is blowing my mind. It's incredible
that neither the scientists or the theologians were able to see past
their own paradigm traps to piece together the
new metaparadigm that you put forth. You make the most complex
concepts so understandable.
I thoroughly enjoyed your new book. I really enjoy the way your mind
works and how you thread your personal experiences into a journey of
self-understanding as well as a revelation of physics, light and God. I
learnt a lot from reading it and am very grateful that you wrote it. The
whole heft of the book is one of light and fun. It was fun, in the best
sense, to read . . . your kindness comes through in a very touching way.
. . . extremely well written, almost reading itself with no effort on the part of the reader. It contains many quotations that help in grounding the points made therein.
Science Within Consciousness Review
Truly engaging, accessible, and a pleasure to read
I am so thankful that someone has finally written a book such as this!
Its beautiful in every way.
What an extraordinary, marvelous, powerful, profound piece of work. Spoke most fundamentally to the deepest questions that I have been jousting with.
Can I buy two dozen copies to give to friends?
What an accomplishment -- and to narrow it down to a book I can read makes it even more remarkable.
Direct, simple and non-mystifying. A wonderful bridge.
