". . . explores how intuition and speculation are now being given scientific rigor and urgency as a multidimensional worldview emerges." (The Compendium Newsletter, Vol. 38, No. 2, Mar/Apr 2010)
“Ervin Laszlo provides the most brilliant, comprehensive, and intellectually satisfying integral theory of everything that I have ever read. . . . His work transcends the vision of Darwin, Newton, Einstein, the quantum pioneers, and many other scientific giants of history.” (Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success)
“Arguably the world’s greatest system theorist and interdisciplinary scientist and philosopher, Ervin Laszlo is a multifaceted individual with a range of interests and talents reminiscent of the great figures of the Renaissance. In an intellectual tour de force and a series of books, Laszlo offers a solution to the current paradoxes in Western science that transcends the boundaries of individual disciplines.” (Stanislav Grof, author of Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science and When the Impossible Happens)
"Ervin Laszlo has provided thought provoking information to guide us through this period of transition." (Kathryn Price, book editor, WomensRadio)
"Our world is undergoing a radical 'macroshift' at the same time as our scientific understanding of reality is revving up for a major paradigm shift. . . . This is truly inspiring stuff!" (Nexus New Times Magazine)
"This is a book I recommend for those who are interested quantum physics and the meditative state as it is written in a style I was able to understand, considering my strengths are not in science and mathematics." (Barbara Martin, reviewer, Jan 2009)
"It is an exciting time to be alive now, during the evolution of the next step of human consciousness, and reading this book created a safe perspective for me 'to be' in the scheme of things." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide magazine, Issue No. 25, May/June 08)
"From a scientifcally idealistic point of view, there is something that seems right about this book's advice. . . . From the shifting of political, corporate, and military resources to the planetary ethic, to the latest scientific knowledge, this is a book you wish everyone read." (Cheznoiu and Kovacs, United Association for Body Psychotherapy, Sep 2008)
"Whenever I read a book written by a Nobel prize nominee, (peace, in this case, twice) I expect an interesting read. Quantum Shift in the Global Brain did not disappoint, but for rather a surprising reason: the book is a strange juxtaposition of societal and global trends, quantum and chaos physics, and pseudoscience, with wide breadth and bold claims. So, it kept me on my toes." (Donald N. Petcher, Journal of the American Scientific Affiliation, Vol. 61, No. 1, March 2009)
"Any college-level collection strong in either science or sociology will find this intriguing." (The Midwest Book Review, June 2008)
"Laszlo makes a compelling case; his analysis of human populations and resource use provides a good historical basis to his theory that an industrialized way of life is unsustainable. Not merely content to describe the impending apocalypse, he lays out strategies and solutions to help support our survival." (Witches & Pagans, Feb 2010)
"The overall message of the book, however unlikely this seems at present, is that humanity is a system capable of rapid transformation. We will soon enough discover whether this is true." (David Lorimer, The Scientific and Medical Network, March 2010)

More accessible than Science and the Akashic Field, this book is highly thought-provoking; it brings together scientific and religious knowledge towards an idea that Laszlo dubbs (page 125) "a Holos-civilization" - "a civilization based on empathy, trust and solidarity".
At a time when atheists and theists seem increasingly to be talking past one another, Laszlo sets out some very constructive ideas for integration around the vested interest that we all have in preserving and better understanding the holistic environment that we inhabit. It is encouraging that intellectuals such as Laszlo are continuing the Bohm tradition of looking for harmony where others see conflict. A very good read.
