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.

"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, Irreverent, Intriguing
A fascinating and easy to understand look at the latest cutting edge science with glimpses of the intersection of science and religion. A life changing book if you will allow it to be.
Fun, humour, irony.
It's too much for one sitting. I have listened to it now perhaps 20 times, and each time I take it slowly, remembering new things.
"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"
Though I really like the movie and have seen it several times, I found this book to be disorganized and boring.
"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.
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.
"Fantastic content, terrible reader"
a different reader. The person chosen is totally unsuited to the content of the book
the experiment of labeling bottles of water then freezing them. Amazing outcome.
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
The content is fascinating
don't get bored, older women to read scientific books
"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.
The story and observations opened my eyes of the possibilities of what can BE and what IS. Truly enjoyable!
You. NEED exposure to this stuff. Don't know who you are, but I know this can help to make our world better
"Read to me like an adult."
I pushed through as much as I could on this book but had to stop. The writing and subject are outstanding However, Suzanne Toren reads it as if she's standing in front of a class of first graders. I'll buy the printed version.
"Too deep to concentrate on in the car!"
No - unless they were deeply spiritual and could sit, uninterrupted, and really get into the story, it is too deep and too long winded.
not in this genre of book
it was quite boring - didn't capture me at all
don't know - couldn't finish it
I use audio books because i am short of time, so i make the most of my time in the car - this book is FAR too deep and doesn't follow in a straight line - i had trouble trying to stay with them and understand what they were talking about, and why. For anyone spiritual and able to sit quietly and listen to it, it may be ok. in which case, i'd say buy the book.
For an audio book, not suitable.
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
