What I’m reading: The Tao of Physics

I’m almost not sure where to begin in recommending this book. It’s an exploration of the parallels between modern physics and eastern mysticism, as it says in the tagline. This book feels so familiar to me–I wonder if I read it when I was much younger and couldn’t understand it, which is just the kind of thing that my brothers and I used to do, so it’s entirely possible. It’s a best seller from the 70s and has since been translated into 23 languages. A great modern physics primer wound together with an overview of Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Zen, and Chinese thought. I’ve been aware of the similarities in processes and thought between these for as long as I can remember…but again, maybe I read it as a kid? In any case, I’m halfway through (or so), making slow progress as I simultaneously read bajillions of photography books.
