I approach anything with "Quantum" in the title with a skeptical eye, as I feel the current fashion for explaining everything from ghosts to the impossibility of artificial intelligence by reference to quantum uncertainty, quantum coupling, etc., could use either a strong dose of real physics or just a good long rest. On the other hand, many people still live in the clockwork universe of Newton or even the commonsense world of Aristotle, years after the work of Einstein, Schroedinger, Heisenberg, Goedel, "etc.," revealed the cracks in the foundations of classical and naive physics and mathematics, so anything that raises awareness of these changes in the intellectual climate will have some good effects down the line.
I once referred to general-semantics as "21st Century Zen Epistemology," which might fit _Quantum Psychology_ as well. RAW has laid out a series of observations and a program of exercises that can, quite simply, make your mind work better, unless you are among the one in a scadzillion who has already completed the work.
Please don't fool yourself on this point! Read the book anyway.
Do the work. Do us all a favor, first of all yourself.
I also think that the points he makes are well worth repeating, and further more I think that they are could be some of the most important ideas in the world today. Wilson askes us to reconsider everything we think that we know about reality, right down the our use of the word "is." As I read anyone of his books, I find myself time after time challenged to rethink how I view "reality."
I really enjoy reading RAW's work, and this book is not an exception for me. It has been about five years since I have read a RAW book, and I am glad I have waited. Instead of complaining about Wilson covering the same territory twice I am happy to get reaquainted with his views on life the universe and everything.
For those who work on the quantum brain, neuroscience and quantum mecahnics, you would find the book a great tool towards understanding and formulating a consis look of the world around us, including ourselves. A great book, I recommend for every one to have. Just a true must have wonder!

Very fun to read! It can confuse you and you kind of have to re-read a few things till it makes sense.Published 4 months ago by Kevin H
As a professional physicist I found RAW's exposition comical, he proudly states that he has never studied Physics, which "is" painfully obvious to someone who has. Read morePublished on Dec 29 2003 by Mike
Learning how to use your brain is never more fun than with the wonderfully zany, enlightening methods of RAW. Read morePublished on May 30 2003 by Brian Wallace (Co-author of It's Not Your Hair)

It's every bit as good and useful as the first book. It will change your life again.Published on Dec 10 2001 by Lawrence Fife
I have read much of Mr. Wilson's writings. This book is well worth reading for its counter cultural flavor and pseudo-scientific odor. Read morePublished on Dec 5 2001 by Burke Lanthorn
