Product description

From Library Journal

Psychologists C'de Baca and Miller (both Univ. of New Mexico) define "quantum change" as a kind of sudden "personal metamorphosis." People who experience it, they believe, are sources of untapped potential for universal human healing. Collected here are dozens of "before and after" tales that the authors derived from interviews, letters, and telephone calls. These tales reflect two types of quantum change sudden insights and epiphanies as well as their characteristics. The authors successfully assert that as a person is guided to a new place of authentic truth within himself or herself, peacefulness and inner strength ensue, and a positive shift in core values results. Unfortunately, the authors do not effectively address the other side that is, quantum changes that bring negative outcomes for the examples they give do not exhibit most of the characteristics of quantum change. Still, this work is valuable because it teaches ordinary people not to fear sudden spiritual encounters. For large psychology collections in public libraries. Lisa Liquori, Syracuse, NY

Review

"Bill Miller and Janet C'de Baca have written a wonderful book. Not since William James's Varieties of Religious Experience has there been such a psychologically penetrating book on spiritual experience." --George E. Vaillant, MD, Harvard Medical School

"Although many people spend years struggling to fix personal problems, some people undergo sudden, dramatic, and nearly instantaneous change. This book tells their stories and identifies the core features of these transformational changes. The idea of quantum change is arguably among the most exciting in psychology, since it challenges both common sense and clinical lore. This book will appeal to anyone interested in psychological change, transformation, or the human condition. In other words, this book is for everyone." --Todd F. Heatherton, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dartmouth College

"Reading Quantum Change is a mystical experience of its own. This is an exceptionally well written book that I found inspirational, enlightening, and a 'must read.' After reading this book, don't be surprised if you think about change in a new way." --Monty Roberts, author of the New York Times best seller, The Man Who Listens to Horses
