Ken Wilber has long been hailed as one of the most important thinkers of our time but - until now - his work has seemed difficult for the general reader who lacks a background in consciousness studies or evolutionary theory. 'A Theory of Everything' is a concise, comprehensive overview of Wilber's revolutionary thought and its application in today's world. Here at last is a book that will allow a general audience fully to understand what all the excitement has been about. In clear, non-technical language, Wilber presents complex, cutting-edge theories and models 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 fields such as politics, medicine, business, education and the environment. Finally, he discusses daily practices that readers can take up in order to apply this integrative vision to their own, everyday lives. 'A Theory of Everything' is a compelling blueprint for the application of Wilber's ground-breaking theory in daily, practical situations. 'I read Ken Wilber every day so that I can be inspired by the most extraordinary mind of our times.' Deepak Chopra Other books by Ken Wilber Grace and Grit Marriage of Sense and Soul A Brief History of Everything

Review:
The spiritual intellectual Ken Wilber takes on the hottest theory in modern physics, known as the "M Theory," or the "The Theory of Everything." As Wilber explains, it is "a model that would unite all the known laws of the universe into one all-embracing theory that would literally explain everything in existence." Of course this new "M Theory" opens up a can of wormy, slippery questions, which Wilber addresses: "What does 'everything' actually mean? Would this new theory in physics explain, say the meaning of human poetry? Or how economics work? Or the stages of psychosexual development?"

Being Ken Wilber, he couldn't resist answering these questions by folding the "Theory of Everything" into some of his own personal visions and theories. This overlay is presented in his signature straightforward, clearly written style. The upshot is that common readers can easily follow Wilber on a quantum journey and wind up with a lasting souvenir--a scientific and spiritual understanding of how the mind, body, soul, and universe all work together like a never-ending symphony. And that's just in the first four chapters. From there he shows readers the practical applications of this vision--explaining how it could lead to more integrative styles of business, education, medicine, ecology and even how we address world conflicts. Wilber admits that this "holistic quest is an ever-receding dream, a horizon that constantly retreats as we approach it." Nonetheless, he can still take readers on an incredible journey--one that's well worth the price of the ticket. --Gail Hudson

Review:
" Wilber's 'integral vision' offers readers the opportunity to make valuable connections among disparate disciplines and- just maybe- to prepare themselves for a brave new world." - "Publishers Weekly" "Wilber's 'integral vision' offers readers the opportunity to make valuable connections among disparate disciplines and--just maybe--to prepare themselves for a brave new world."--Publishers Weekly "A soaring tour de force and daring exposition by one of America's most inventive thinkers. Don't quit the search for an integral culture until you have given it a whirl--and take this book with you as a sturdy guide."--Professor Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School "Ken Wilber is one of the most creative spiritual thinkers alive today, and A Theory of Everything is an accessible taste of his brilliance. Like a masterful conductor, he brings everyone in, finds room for science and spirit, and creates music for the soul."--Rabbi Michael Lerner, author of The Politics of Meaning
