"If you can't explain something simply, then you don't understand it well enough" is a quote attributed to Einstein. Rupert Sheldrake most definitely understands what he's trying to teach, and does so simply, passionately and eloquently-- I only wish I had a science teacher like him when I was in school. This book is absolutely fantastic! I have to set it aside regularly, I find it that stimulating. Really :).
