I have serious disagreements with R. A. Wilson's whole approach, but I must give the devil his due. This is such a clear and concise presentation of his philosophical system and such an effortless display of understanding of all the most fundamental philosophical issues in the whole history of Western thought (the introduction should be required reading for every freshman humanities student) that only a writer of his education and skill level could possibly have pulled it off. In terms of subject matter it's the same as all his other books (minus his worst excesses), so don't go looking for anything groundbreaking, but if you're new to Wilson or haven't figured him out yet, by all means get this one.

Format: Paperback
Three important words: "read this book." Three much more important words: "Do the exercises." Some readers may have already encountered the main principles of this work, either in other books by RAW or by studying general-semantics; I still think it a valuable epitome of some very useful ideas. If nothing else, I think it would reduce the number of Internet arguments that start with "As you could plainly see if you had simply READ what I WROTE ..." which would certainly rank as an improvement in MY world.
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.

Format: Paperback
After reading a majority of Robert Anton Wilson's books, I have formed the opinion that he repeats the same points over and over again through-out his work. I find that he often writes about General Semantics, UFOs, quantum physics, reality tunnels, and weird science. I also think that he revisits these topics to make the same points he has made before.
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.

Format: Paperback
Maybe this is what Clinton was referring to in his infamous linguistic/legal moment before the Star Inquisition. All joking aside, this book is a MUST read for anyone wanting to start getting rid of the semantic spooks in their psyche. This undefinable book of wisdom that weaves a coherent thesis out of such diverse topics as semantics, psychology, physics, model agnosticism and subtle humor makes clear better than anything out there just how much our perceptions and behavior are controlled/influenced by embedded language biases. Just learning to write in e-prime (english without the word "is") makes the book a worthwhile experience. Quantum Psychology opened me to a whole new way of thinking and perceiving, and that is something I can say but very few other books. I truly had no idea the robotizing effect language has on our behavior and perceptions--its not a discovery you can be "told"--you must experience it through the exercises in this book. You owe it to yourself to check this one out.

For the seriouse reader: this is a great contribution towards a better understanding of the human psychology. Furthermore, this book successfuly merges the worlds of nature sciences particularly physics, quantum physics and philosophy with the study of psychology. After each chapter you become a different person, by developing a much more relaxed and better ways of seeing and interacting with the surrounding and every day life challenges, yet the book stays deep in every idea it dares to present and discusses.
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!
